LONDON - Fans of Mr Bean will be tickled pink with the news that comedy actor Rowan Atkinson will become a father again.
The 62-year-old's girlfriend, actress Louise Ford, 33, is expecting their first child, reported British newspapers.
The couple reportedly met in 2013 when they appeared in a play called The Quartermaine's Terms in London's West End.
Atkinson already has two children - 23-year-old Ben and 21-year-old Lily - from a previous marriage to former BBC make-up artist Sunetra Sastry.
