Steve Martin talks about his baby on 'Letterman' (Video)
Steve Martin briefly talked about the newest addition to his family, a baby girl, during his appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman" on Tuesday, April 23.
The 67-year-old actor was on the show to promote his recent album with Edie Brickell called "Love Has Come For You," when David Letterman congratulated him on his baby.
"Oh gosh, thank you for reminding me," Martin said and he pulled out a baby monitor and put it on Letterman's desk. His interview can be seen below.
After Martin placed the monitor on the desk, fake crying noises could be heard, as well as the sound of a window breaking, a dog barking and someone playing a banjo.
"Very good. Baby is very good on the banjo," Martin, who plays the instrument, joked.
A spokesperson for Martin and his wife, Anne Stringfield, confirmed in February that the comedian had welcomed his first child. The spokesperson did not release any other information about the child, including the baby's name or date of birth.
"It's going great because I have a wonderful wife and mother," Martin said.
When Letterman asked about the baby's name, Martin joked, "Thought about the name quite a bit. Conquistador, what do you think?"
Letterman asked, "You're saying the baby's name is Conquistador?"
"Yeah, I didn't want to go with one of those Hollywood -- you know how they come up with the weird names," Martin responded. "Conquistador says -- it's a statement, you know?"
Martin and his wife wed in July 2007 after dating for three years. Lorne Michaels, creator of "Saturday Night Live," was Martin's best man.
