Already a father to two "very active" little boys with his wife Kelley, actor Malcolm McDowell is getting ready to welcome a third baby — another boy — in January! While the Heroes star admits that they have a "very loud household," he couldn’t be more excited to welcome "another stranger" into the home saying, "everything is going to circulate around the new baby, of course, as it should." Although the 65-year-old jokes that "they should be my grandchildren, but they’re my children, so go figure," Kelley tells OK! that Malcolm is a great father to their boys and will — without a doubt — be a great father to the new addition. Says Kelley,

"He’s a jokester. He takes them golfing every day. They’re so into it."

In addition to Beckett Taylor, 4, and Finn, 18 months, with Kelley, Malcolm also has Lily Amanda, 27, and Charles Malcolm, 25, with ex-wife Mary Steenburgen.

More power to ya!! I’m 40, in less than 2 months, four kids 15, 13, 7, 3 someone shoot me if i think of having anymore!I love being a mom, don’t get me wrong but I am soooo tired of homework, bleacher butt (from all the sports they are in) and whinning how “its not fair”. And at the same time I love it when we all eat supper together, snuggling at bedtime (the 3 yr old gets 3 books the 7 yr old chapter books) Saturday and Sunday mornings and summers with no sports just swimming in the lake, campfires no hassels. But to start all over NO THANKS! Although when i see a mom with a baby or one of those baby shows, I will start to think maybe… until I hear in the faint distant that its NOT my turn to load and unload the dishwasher and somehow that thought quickley leaves my head!

LOL @ Mary. My first reaction was wow, 65,he’s nuts! To each his own and if he’s happy about having more kids later in life- then it’s great. Congrats to him.

I personally think 65 is to old to have another baby, but Congratulations!

Since it’s his wife having the baby and he obviously makes a good living, I don’t see any problem with him becoming a father again at 65. He seems happy about it and probably proud that his swimmers are still potent at his age.
