Lee Ryan is so besotted with his baby son he wants to make him a film star.

The Blue singer - who is releasing a new solo album and a comeback single Secret Love, as well as starring in new film The Heavy with Vinnie Jones - is father to his 16-month-old son Ryan Lee Amethyst Ryan - and is engaged to Sammi Millar, a fan he met on MySpace.

Lee told Heat magazine: "I love being a dad - I wake up in the morning and my little boy jumps on top of me and bites me and then he snots all over me ... it's brilliant. I want to put him in films."

Speaking about his own acting debut in The Heavy, Lee said: "I have a lead role. It's coming out at the same time as my single, which is amazing.

"It's called The Heavy. There's a scene where I'm strapped to a table and Vinnie tortures me. I can't wait for people to see a different part of me."

Lee is also delighted to be making a musical comeback.

He said: "I feel really lucky that I've had a second chance. It's taken me four years to write this album. I've been through edgy rock, alternative pop... I must've written about 1,000 songs.

"This album is about me, about things that I've been through, and the misconception of me, too - about the way people perceive me."
