Criminal Sentence 422: New Discovery about Birth

From today's entertainment section in the paper:

"Josh Radnor ('How I Met Your Mother') was born to his mom 36 years ago today."

This is stunning news! His mom was involved in the birth? Alert scientists about this new development!

How about just say he's 36 today?

I think they were trying to be clever. He is on "How I Met Your Mother," so they were pointing out that he was born to HIS mother 36 years ago. I agree, though, that it does sound odd.
