The universe certainly works in mysterious ways, but it’s always amazing when the stars align just right.
Actor Jeff Goldblum caused some major buzz online after announcing the birth of his first child on his Facebook page this week. While his baby news is exciting enough, it was the day his newborn son was born that sent fans into a tizzy.
Goldblum, one of the stars of the 1996 alien disaster movie Independence Day, happily revealed that his newborn son, Charlie, was born on… Independence Day!
Goldblum shared a photo of him and his wife, Emilie Livingston, holding their newborn son with the caption, “We’re so excited to share the wonderful news of the birth of our son, Charlie Ocean Goldblum, born on the 4th of July. Independence Day.”
Of course, fans were quick to draw on the amazing coincidence, leaving comments like “Born on the day you helped save the world from Aliens…That is pretty special” and “It’s really amazing and ironic at the same time with the movie, his son being born on July 4th. That dots are all connected.”
Goldblum is currently filming the sequel to the sci-fi flick titled Independence Day: Resurgence. Congrats to the happy family on this happy coincidence!
