Dumbledore (Sir Michael Gambon) expecting child with lover

02/26/2007 at 07:05 AM ET

Harry Potter’s Dumbledore, Sir Michael Gambon, 66, is expecting a child with his "lover", as The Mirror calls her. This lady, Philippa Hart, 41, has been in a relationship with Gambon for more than 6 years. Their relationship began in 2001, and he then separated from his wife in 2002, though they remain married.

The couple, who are said to be deeply in love, do not live together and apparently the pregnancy was planned;

Philippa was approaching 40 at the time and was keen to have a baby – and despite his age Michael saw no reason not to. He can afford to provide for it and wants her to be happy. But he’s no intention of giving up his freedom. He likes to fly his plane at weekends.

The baby is due in May and will join Fergus, Gambon’s son from his marriage to Anne.

Hee! The word lover always makes me laugh. Congrats to Sir Michael, I totally love him.

Having a baby because you want your lover to be happy and because you have the means to provide for “it” aren’t the greatest of reasons. Congrats to them, but it seems like he should have taken the right steps first, like divorcing his wife and becoming a little more open to sacrificing his “freedom”.

I totally agree with you, Cali.

Um, I guess congratulations to Sir Michael and his “lover.” Hmmm.

Guess he’s done a little “Wingardium Leviosa” huh? *wink*
