While Steve Martin may have wrangled 12 children in Cheaper by the Dozen, the actor opened up about the birth of his first child last night on The Late Show with David Letterman.
The 67-year-old comedian who revealed in February that he and his wife Anne Stingfield, 41, welcomed a baby girl last December, talked about stuggling to find an appropriate name for his new offspring.
"We've thought about the name quite a bit," Martin told Letterman, according to a clip on The Clicker. "Conquistador. What do you think? I didn't want to go with one of those Hollywood ... weird names. Conquistador says... it's a statement."
Martin is proving to be a master of secrets when it comes to protecting his daughter's privacy. After keeping the birth under wraps for nearly two months, Martin would still like to keep his child's name out of the limelight.
The new dad had a bit of fun with the audience, pulling out a baby monitor so the audience could listen in on his supposed infant back at the hotel. Instead an array of odd noises - dogs barking, horns honking, banjo playing- came over the airwaves.
However daunting parenthood may be, Martin is grateful to have Stingfield by his side.
"It's going great because I have a wonderful wife and mother," Martin said.
Fans will have to wait to find out what name the new parents settled on.
