Jeff Goldblum: We planted son’s dried-up umbilical cord under a tree

Jeff Goldblum and his wife Emilie planted their son Charlie’s umbilical cord under a tree — so that there would be somewhere he “will always feel grounded”.

Goldblum, 63, and Livingston — who at 33 is 30 years his junior — had Charlie on July 4 last year.

Referring to a picture of her planting the cord, he told Britain’s Observer newspaper: “That’s my wife planting our dried-up umbilical cord underneath a tree a couple of days ago.

“It’s a little New Agey but the idea is that this is a place where Charlie will always feel grounded.”

Goldblum also revealed that an engraving on his wedding ring reads “Peaches + Patches = Eternal Love”. He revealed that ‘Peaches’ is the nickname he uses for Emilie, while she calls him ‘Patches’ because of a bit of his torso which looks like a patch.

He also told how he recently went on a boat trip with Quentin Tarantino, Stevie Wonder and playwright Tom Stoppard, where they ended up singing songs with Julian Lennon.

Goldblum currently stars in Independence Day: Resurgence, which is released on June 24 in the US.
