Jewish actor Jeff Goldblum is a first time dad. Mazel!

The Jurassic Park star welcomed son Charlie Ocean Goldblum with wife Emilie Livingston on July 4. Fans of the actor were quick to point out the irony–Goldblum is largely known for his starring role in the 90-s blockbuster hit, Independence Day.

“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,” Goldblum wrote in a Facebook post.
