I could make cracks about your ages, but I used to be married to an Eisenhower-era-born baby boomer. I've since considered myself to be a baby-boomer-in-law.
On a related note, having been accustomed to being a grand-uncle many times over by marriage softened the impact when I became one by biology a couple of years ago.
I'm reminded of a funny-sad exchange on Frasier

"How do you think I feel?" his dad asked. "I have a son
who is middle-aged."
