There’s a baby on the way for rocker Chris Robinson.

The Black Crowes frontman, 42, and girlfriend Allison Bridges are expecting a new arrival in early 2010, his rep confirms to PEOPLE. The couple began dating in 2007.

This will be the second child for Chris, who has a 5 ½-year-old son, Ryder Russell, with ex-wife Kate Hudson.

The Black Crowes’ latest album, Before the Frost…Until the Freeze, is available now.

No, he has been married before he was married to Kate, but no other kids.

I’m so happy (and kind of sad he didn’t have this baby with Kate *sniff*) because I love Chris Robinson he is just amazing:)

Now if we can only get Kate to settle down….with one guy?! Sorry don’t like her and A-Rod together…it’s probably not going to be more then just another one of her flings…jmo of course!

but I’m happy for Chris. He always seems like a great daddy to Ryder!

Funny how I always know when Kate Hudson is dating someone new; but I had no clue Chris Robinson had a girlfriend, let alone one who was pregnant. Congrats to them! 🙂

Ashley on

Lola Marie on

Congrats to Chris 😀

I always wanted him and Kate to work out 😦

Sue on

I thought the problem with Kate and Chris was that he did not want another child.

CelebBabyLover on

Sue- That may have been true….But you need to remember that their divorce happened a few years ago. Chris very easily could have changed his mind since then. 🙂

Mia on

I love Kate Hudson, and also hoped the 2 of them would get back together. Congrats on the new addition! I bet Ryder is very excited. I think it will be a girl.
