Mr Bean star Rowan Atkinson, 62, set to become a father AGAIN

Mr Bean star Rowan Atkinson, 62, set to become a father AGAIN

Multiple British newspapers have reported the Mr Bean actor is set to become a father again at 62.

Comedy legend Rowan Atkinson's actress partner Louise Ford, 33, is expecting their first child in the next few weeks.

He shares two children with ex-wife Sunetra Sastry - 24-year-old son Benjamin, and 22-year-old daughter Lily.

Louise is well-known for her roles in The Windsors and Crashing on Channel 4.

Atkinson already have two grown up kids Ben, 23, and daughter Lily, 21, from his marriage to Sunetra Sastry.

It was initially was measured at a magnitude of 6.7 and happened about 44 miles southwest of the capital at a depth of 6.2 miles. Otto Vargas, a university professor in San Jose who was at home with his family, said: "We're very scared".

The news about Rowan become a father again comes just a month after it was reported that his daughter Lily had chose to change her name.

In February 2016, Miss Ford - who is 28 years younger than Atkinson - was said to have moved out of her south London flat and into Mr Atkinson's £4.65million three-bedroom cottage in north London. Speaking about the name change, a source told the Daily Mail: "It's a real mystery. Atkinson has been Lily's name all her life, but she's now dropped it and is styling herself as Lily Sastry". Congratulations! I dare you to write a new Bean series with Bean as a "mature" father!

Another added: "Congratulations to Rowan Atkinson and his girlfriend #LouiseFord on their lovely baby news!"

While plenty of joy can come from having children at any age, most people find themselves thinking about becoming grandparents, rather than parents, once they've entered their 60s.
