British actor Simon Pegg is to become a first-time father - his wife is five months pregnant.
The Shaun of the Dead star married wife Maureen MCCann in 2005, and now the couple is looking forward to becoming parents.
Pegg admits he is excited about the birth and desperately wants a daughter.
He says, "My wife is five months pregnant. We haven't announced it yet as we want to keep it hush-hush.
"I'm hoping for a baby girl, but I really don't mind what we have. We're thinking of having it in America as the baby will then have dual citizenship.
"I'm really looking forward to it. It's going to be amazing."
Pegg is already godfather to Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter, Apple.
MCCann is due to give birth in June (09).
