Rowan Atkinson is reportedly about to become a father for the third time at the age of 62.

The English star's partner Louise Ford, 33, is expected to give birth to their first child together in the next few weeks, according to a report in U.K. newspaper The Daily Mirror.

"Rowan and Louise are over the moon and can't wait for their new arrival. It's a very happy time for them both," a source told the publication.

Atkinson has two adult children, son Benjamin and daughter Lily, from his previous marriage to Sunetra Sastry.

The comedian began dating Ford in 2014 after separating from his wife of nearly 25 years. Atkinson and Sastry were officially divorced after a 65-second court hearing, and Ford later moved into Atkinson's $6.1 million (£4.6 million) home in North London.

Atkinson and Ford met in 2012 when they starred together in West End comedy Quartermaine's Terms.

Ford appeared in Channel 4 comedy drama Crashing before landing a role portraying Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge in satirical comedy show The Windsors.

Atkinson found fame in the 1980s after appearing in BBC comedy sketch show Not the Nine O'Clock News and later went on to star in historical comedy Blackadder, sitcom Mr. Bean and movie franchise Johnny English.
