Matt Damon is to become a father for the second time as his wife Luciana is expecting another baby, it has emerged today.

His representative, Jennifer Allen, confirmed the news exclusively to People magazine.

"They couldn't be happier," she said. "They're so excited!"

Hints of a pregnancy were evident last night at the Empire Film Awards in London, with Luciana's elegant black dress showing a small bump.

The couple's first child, Isabella, was born in June 2006 and Luciana has another child, Alexia, from a previous marriage.

Matt Damon's latest movie, Bourne Ultimatum, was voted best film of last year at the Empire awards.

Although the picture was expected to be the last in the Bourne franchise, reports emerged last month that another film can be expected.

Hollywood trade paper Variety claimed that Damon will reunite with director Paul Greengrass for another thriller about the amnesiac secret agent.
