James Mcavoy To Be A Dad

James McAvoy is going to become a father.

The 'Wanted' star and his actress wife Anne-Marie Duff - who first met on the set of British TV series 'Shameless' in 2003 - are expecting their first child together, it was announced today (26.01.10).

The couple's spokesman Rupert Fowler said: "We are happy to confirm that James McAvoy and Anne-Marie Duff are expecting their first child."

The 30-year-old actor - who stars in new period drama 'The Last Station' alongside British star Dame Helen Mirren - married Anne-Marie, 39, in an intimate ceremony in 2006.

Anne-Marie - who has been nominated for three BAFTA TV awards and a BAFTA film award for 'Nowhere Boy' - recently spoke about how keen she was to start a family, and hinted that motherhood was something she was looking forward to.

She said: "I would love to have a baby. As soon as the big fella makes it happen, it would be brilliant. I'm not putting it off but unfortunately bodies don't work that way."
