Anne Stringfield and Steve Martin have one child together. Their daughter’s name is Mary Martin. She was reportedly named after her paternal grandmother. She was born in December 2012 and she is 10 years old as of 2022.

It took quite some time for details of Anne Stringfield and Steve Martin’s daughter to appear in the media as both parents were very private about their daughter’s personal information. Her picture was only released after two years of her birth in November 2014 when her mother took her on a stroll in Los Angeles.

Her father once joked about her name being “Conquistador” during an interview with David Letterman on the “Late Show”.

In his words:

‘We’ve thought about the name quite a bit…’Conquistador’…What do you think? I didn’t want to go with one of those Hollywood weird names. Conquistador says… It’s a statement’.

Steve Martin granted a lot of interviews to magazines and TV shows after the birth of Mary since she was the first child he would ever have. He was 67 years of age while his wife was 40 years of age at the time of their child’s birth.

According to Steve, he had the child at the right time because having a child earlier would have made him a lousy father as he would have been more concerned about his career. He explained that at the time he had the child, he had no career to run after, giving him all the time in the world to learn and grow with her.
