Actor Simon Pegg has revealed that he and wife Maureen McCann are expecting their first child in June. Following the Brit Awards on Wednesday, the 39-year-old opened up, revealing, “‘My wife is five months pregnant. We haven’t announced it yet as we want to keep it hush-hush.” Now that the couple is sharing the news, Simon couldn’t hide his excitement. “I’m really looking forward to it,” notes the actor. “It’s going to be amazing.”
While he is “hoping for a baby girl,” he admits that “I really don’t mind what we have” and that the couple is “thinking of having it in America as the baby will then have dual citizenship.”
Simon has some experience with children as he is godfather to Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow‘s 4 ½-year-old daughter Apple. The Shaun Of The Dead star and Maureen were married on July 23rd, 2005.
