  use Moo;
  use MooX::Types::MooseLike::DateTime qw/DateTime/;
  use aliased 'DateTime' => 'DT';

  has birthdate => (
    isa     => DateTime,
    is      => 'ro',
    default => sub { DT->today }
  );

TIPS

Coercion
  use DateTime::Format::Strptime;
  use Scalar::Util qw/blessed/;

  has birthdate => (
    isa     => DateAndTime,
    is      => 'ro',
    default => sub { DateTime->today },
    coerce  => sub {
        (blessed($_[0]) and (blessed($_[0]) eq 'DateTime'))
      ? $_[0]
      : DateTime::Format::Strptime->new(pattern => '%F %T')->parse_datetime($_[0])
    }
