Rowan Atkinson, the Blackadder and Mr Bean actor, is to become a father again at the age of 62, it has been reported. In 2014, Atkinson started dating Louise who plays Kate in the hit television series "The Windsors".

The star, who has two grown up children from his first marriage, is expecting his first child with actress Louise Ford, who is 29-years his junior. The couple - who met in 2012 when they acted together in West End comedy Quatermaine's Terms - come from very different backgrounds.

'Rowan and Louise are over the moon and can't wait for their new arrival.

Ford had recently been spotted on a shopping trip in London looking heavily pregnant.

Rowan already has two grown-up children, Ben, 23, and daughter Lily, 21, from his marriage to Sunetra Sastry. The actor was married to the BBC make-up artist for 25 years before they split in 2013, and has been in a relationship with Louise since 2014.

The news comes after a Daily Mail report last month that Lily, a burlesque dancer, had made a decision to ditch her father's surname, taking on the maiden name of her mother instead. Speaking about the name change, a source told the Daily Mail: "It's a real mystery".
