Filmmaker David Lynch confirms baby on the way

Filmmaker David Lynch is going to be a dad again, at the ripe age of 66.

Lynch, the man behind acclaimed films such as The Elephant Man and Mulholland Dr, as well as the weird and groundbreaking '90s TV series Twin Peaks, confirmed today that he and his actress wife of three years, Emily Stofle, are expecting in August.

"The couple is thrilled at the news and looking forward to meeting their first child together," according to the statement issued by their PR firm.

Gossip bloggers had spotted the couple at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles over the weekend, with Stofle looking heavily pregnant.

Lynch, with his signature upstanding swirl of a hairstyle, is a four-time Oscar nominee, for Mulholland and Elephant, and also Blue Velvet, and has been married four times. He split from his last wife, in 2006, after just one month of marriage. He also has three adult children.

He met Stofle on the set of Inland Empire, another groundbreaking TV series he wrote.

ophelia_wild 13th-Jul-2012 04:49 am (UTC)
He's going to be 132?
lovexemity 13th-Jul-2012 05:54 am (UTC)
If 66 is midlife then I guess I'm an infant.

It's a little late for him to be having a mid-life crisis
dottiehinkle 13th-Jul-2012 04:55 am (UTC)
Also a little late to be impregnating a woman more that half his age I would say.

Stellan Skarsgard's second wife is 35 (the same age as his son Alex)and she's pregnant with their second child - which will be his eighth child.

I will forever love Mulholland Dr.

I don't think I'd want David Lynch as my dad.
morant_bay 13th-Jul-2012 09:53 am (UTC)
i don't think i'd want him as my significantly older husband/old as hale father of my firstborn child.
getallcorpse 13th-Jul-2012 02:32 pm (UTC)
I always wondered how his children felt about Eraserhead.

I know Lynch has never given an explanation as to an exact interpretation of the film, but I imagine at least part of it has to do with his anxiety about fatherhood and how much it disturbed him at first.
reginageorge 13th-Jul-2012 04:52 am (UTC)
midlife crisis for sure
marshallgregson 13th-Jul-2012 04:52 am (UTC)
i'd be happier for him if another film was on the way

I'm sure they get that a lot.

More like end of life crisis.

He met Stofle on the set of Inland Empire, another groundbreaking TV series he wrote.

It was a movie. Lazy journalists should learn how to search imdb.
longlivemcqueen 13th-Jul-2012 04:54 am (UTC)
damn i love him but that's pretty old to have a kid :/
voyevoda 13th-Jul-2012 04:55 am (UTC)
I don't know why I'm so curious about how old she is (she looks no more than 22, if I'm being generous).
dottiehinkle 13th-Jul-2012 04:56 am (UTC)
Pretty sure shes mid to late twenties.
loveissuicide87 13th-Jul-2012 05:14 am (UTC)
She's 30.
fraubluecher 13th-Jul-2012 10:54 am (UTC)
Whoa, really? I would have given her mid to late 30s. I must be seeing something totally different.
gigglyvapidslut 13th-Jul-2012 04:45 pm (UTC)
what?? i guess i'm seeing what you're seeing because 22, no way
blackwidow 13th-Jul-2012 04:56 am (UTC)
I believe she's 30 years old, so 36 years apart? I don't know how I feel about that tbh.

I mean my parents are 13 years apart, but I could never date someone who is older than my dad. It just freaks me the fuck out.

Good for them though. I hope they make it work.
pretend_to_care 13th-Jul-2012 05:28 am (UTC)
I have a thing for older dudes, but I tread carefully because I remember that one of my mom's high school BFF's dad married one of their classmates during his mid-life crisis. He was 32 years older than her, and she was younger than all of his kids. I don't want to be someone's mid-life crisis.

Sorry for the cool story bro reply to your comment; it just made me think of that.
morant_bay 13th-Jul-2012 09:56 am (UTC)
i'm 13 years older than my husband. i wonder what the difference will be when i'm in my 50s and he's in his 40s. i can't even fathom a 36 year age gap.
