GLENDALE, CA – Referring to the coincidence as an exercise in unfairness, new dad Chase Carmichael was saddened this week to learn that his first Father’s Day will fall on his mother-in-law’s birthday.
Carmichael, who became a father in March, told he’s excited to see what his first Father’s Day as a dad has in store, be it breakfast in bed, a new set of golf clubs, or potentially sharing the spotlight in his wife’s Instagram posts.
The mother-in-law, Helen, hosts a karaoke bash every year on her birthday, even if it coincides with the observance of a newfound paternal bond, Carmichael informed us.
“It’s fine,” he continued through gritted teeth. “Was thinking maybe we could spend the day doing exclusively Father’s Day things, it being my first. But I guess you only turn 56 once.”
Father’s Day, as designated by President Johnson in 1966, falls each year on the third Sunday of June, regardless of its concurrence with a half-dozen old women vocalizing the horns in “Sweet Caroline” over mojitos.
