Guy Ritchie is to become a father for the third time.
The 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels' director - who already has biological 10-year-old son Rocco and adopted five-year-old boy David with ex-wife Madonna - and his model girlfriend Jacqui Ainsley are expecting their first child together in September and are thrilled at their impending arrival.
A source said: "They have been keen to start a family for a while now. They're absolutely made up. We expect to hear wedding bells next year."
To celebrate the news, the couple - who began dating early last year - went on a luxury holiday, where Guy, 42, was determined 29-year-old Jacqui would relax and take it easy.
The source added to the News of the World newspaper: "Jacqui was crying with joy when she found out she was pregnant. They went on holiday because Guy is determined she takes it easy. He won't let her do anything more strenuous than argue over baby names."
Guy split from Madonna - who also has 14-year-old daughter Lourdes from a previous relationship as well as adopted six-year-old girl Mercy - in 2008 after almost eight years of marriage.
