Fourth Child on the Way for Guy Ritchie

There’s another baby on the way for Guy Ritchie!

The director, 43, and girlfriend Jacqui Ainsley are expecting their second child together later this year, their rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The model debuted her baby belly at the London premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, held Wednesday at The Odeon Leicester Square.

The pair are already parents to son Rafael, 10 months, while Ritchie is also father to two sons – David, 6½, and Rocco, 11 — with ex-wife Madonna.

“This is the first time I’ve been a biological mother but we’ve got the two big boys and they absolutely dote on Raf,” Ainsley, 30, told Grazia after the birth of her son last September.

“They’re always dancing with him and wanting to play with him.”

How is it their second child together but then she says it’s her first pregnancy? I am confused!

Marie P. on

I am confused. Did they adopt the 10 month old? In the beginning of the article it says they are expecting their second child together. But towards the end of the article she says “this is the first time I have been a biological mom”, and she goes on to discuss his two older kids, never mentioning the 10 month old.

Mariana on

Good for them!

Her comment is interesting about being a biological mother; it shows she accepts his older kids as her own as well.

Emily on

The lack of reading comprehension on this site continues to astound. So sad. The quote is from a recent interview – NOT from after THIS pregnancy was announced – with Jacqui talking about baby Rafael and his big brothers.

Anonymous on

Read the article correctly. She clearly mentions her son in the quote. This was obviously before she got pregnant with their second child.

Jes on

“This is the first time I’ve been a biological mother but we’ve got the two big boys and they absolutely dote on Raf,” Ainsley, 30, recently told Grazia

Raf refers to her 10 month old, Rafael. She’s saying her first child is the first time she became a biological mom. She isn’t talking about her current pregnancy. The article jumps around.

jane on

It must be a misquote. If you follow the link in the article, it shows her very pregnant, and announces the birth of their FIRST son in September of last year.

http://celebritybabies.people.com/2011/09/06/guy-ritchie-welcomes-a-son-report/

Stephanie on

I understand it. She’s saying that this is the first time (meaning with her first son) that she has been a biological mom, but will become a biological mom for the second time when she gives birth.

Courtney on

The comment about the two older boys, she does mention their 10 month old. It was obviously taken before this pregnancy was discovered. If you read closer, she mentions “Raf”

Jessica on

It is a WEE bit confusing but Emily is right. The interview that Jacqui gave recently was obviously before she announced her 2nd pregnancy and after the birth of her 1st child. That’s why she says it’s “the first time I’ve been a biological mother” because she is a step-mom to the 2 boys Guy has with Madonna. And those 2 boys now love their new baby brother.

Ariel on

The article says “she recently” made that comment, which I assume means she made it weeks maybe even months ago. So at the time she was either pregnant but not saying anything or she wasn’t pregnant.

Congratulations to them! I just reading love about people who have accepted their partner’s children as their own. Warms my heart.

Jill on

By the time this guy dies at a ripe old age, he’ll have 9 kids with 5 different women. You watch.

Lisa on

Ok so who does Rafael belong to??? Wait is Rafael their nickname for Madonna.

kasia on

it says ‘i have been’ which means she was pregnant for first time.

NM on

Lovely, yet another illegitimate child on the way! No one gets married anymore. Sad!

merry on

I like her comment about being biological mother, it means she feels motherly towards the older boys as well, which is very nice.

crazy on

I guess he had to catch up with Madonna – now they both have 4 kids.

Shannon on

They haven’t been together long. Already pregnant with baby #2? Wow OK. I guess after Madonna he can’t help himself.

Kim on

Wow. People are amazingly dense. Their son, Rafael, is the first time she’s been a biological mother, but she considers his two sons from his previous marriage as family. Now, she’s pregnant with their second mutual biological child. What is so hard to understand??

bh on

Maybe now they will get married???

gb on

LOL Emily. There’s no basis for your remark Jill.

Congrats Guy and Jacqui.

Diana on

If you read the whole comment, she said it’s her first time as a biological mother…and referred to Raf (their first child together), not the child she is expecting. C’mon people!

carla on

BH, why no pressure for Madonna to get married? She is, after all, raising FOUR kids now without a husband. Oh the shame… (sarcasm)

Tanya on

Wow! Congrats to Guy and Jacqui! and to Rafael, Rocco and David! all of them needs in a little girl! ;)

angel on

Uh, Guy was married to Madonna and look at how well that turned out. Why the need to comment on the marital status of every pregnant celebrity? Do you think being married makes you a better person? While I am fortunate enough to be married to a wonderful man, the statistics speak for themselves. Half of all marriages end in divorce. Not to mention the many marriages that are unhealthy and filled with cheating spouses and couples who barely communicate. Live and let live, stop being so judgemental and don’t read celebrity news if you can’t accept different lifestyles.

Guest on

After being married to Madonna, the poor man is probably terrified to do it again. The 9 kids with 5 women comment was in poor taste. He’s in a loving and committed relationship. They obviously love all of their boys. Their home is probably the only stability Rocco and David have. Madonna is never with her kids – she uses them as accessories. I wish these two the best of everything in their future.

Lisa on

Rachel: She didn’t say it was her first pregnancy…she said she’d never been a biological mom before, meaning before she had Rafael, the 10 month old.

Marie P: The 10 month old is mentioned…she said the two older boys “absolutely dote on Raf”. Raf, short for Rafael, is the 10 month old.

Shea on

Well that was fun to try to read. Hysterical reading articles about celebrity families, you never know how many braches of the tree you need to follow to figure out which child was conceived with which parent

eve on

Here Here, Angel

Confused on

Wiki says that she gave birth to the 10 month old? So this would be her second biological pregnancy???

Anonymous on

Two big boys are Rocco, 11 yrs old (Ritchie and Madonna’s biological child) and David, 6 years old (Ritchie and Madonna’s adopted child). That is what she meant , two big boys doting on her first biological son, Raf with Ritchie.

SoNotHollywood on

If you people knew how to read: “This is the first time I’ve been a biological mother but we’ve got the two big boys and they absolutely dote on Raf,” Ainsley, 30, told Grazia after the birth of her son (Rafael).

AFTER THE BIRTH OF HER SON, you know the one she is already a mother to, THAT was the first time she was a biological mother.

Geez. Read first.

LN on

In response to Rachel, the comment Jacqui made was from just after she gave birth to Rafael, who is their first baby together. It wasn’t written very well in this article, and, albeit, a bit confusing.

Gina on

Does this guy ever smile? He looks miserable.

Catca on

Shea,

He had two children with his ex-wife, and now he’s having a second child with Jacqui. It’s really not that complicated and the confusion is more from the writer of the story throwing in a quote that she gave context to after the quote rather than before, not some problem with Guy fathering numerous children with different. The only thing weird about celebrities is that every minute detail of their personal lives gets a story in the news. They really aren’t all that different from us nonfamous folks.

fanofboardwalkempire on

Happy to see the family is expanding they all look so great together and we are happy for Guy Ritchie- He deserves to be happy and I think that his wife is beautiful- good for him!

fanofboardwalkempire on

Oops! I called her his wife and then I realized she is his girlfriend.

sorry about that mistake folks- carry on and good luck with the new baby- I hope it is a girl so that you will have one of each!

God Bless your family!

Colby on

There are no illegitimate children, only illegitimate parents, and many of them are married! Just a thought for a Thursday…

Tia on

Read the words, everyone!

After the quote at the end of the article it says… “Ainsley, 30, told Grazia after the birth of her son last September.” (She spoke in an interview to Grazia AFTER THE BIRTH of her first son, 10 months ago.)

Debbe on

Interesting that he does not marry this girl. He married Madonna and got a lot of money, now he won’t marry this girl. Is it because she has no money? …AND he does not want her to get the money he earned from Madonna?

Anonymous on

carla- I think the reason Madonna isn’t being critcized like Guy is for not being married is because she’s not having children out of wedlock with her boyfriend. That being said, I agree with your point!

Guest- And you know that how? Do you live with Madonna? There’s more to a celeb’s life than just what we see in pictures, you know!

All of that said, congrats to Guy and Jacqui!

Anonymous on

Debbe- Considering the fact that he’s a succesful director, somehow I doubt money is an issue for him! My guess is that he simply isn’t eager to rush into another marriage after what happened with Madonna.

dre23222 on

Guy is really getting it in. He must be good in bed.

Anonymous on

I really like the way Jacqui mentions Rocco and David. Congrats to the couple.

Deb on

Clearly People doesn’t read user comments or else they would know this article is a joke. And how come celebrity pregnancies are ALWAYS glamorized??? Can’t they point out that they aren’t married or at least try to convince us that they are a legitimate couple?!

Cdyana on

I guess congrats are in order…although he really doesn’t look all that thrilled.

Becky on

It says after the comment that she said this after the birth of her son last year

Mama Smurf on

Good Lord people read the entire thing before you comment….she quoted that last September when she was NOT yet pregnant with this baby.

“This is the first time I’ve been a biological mother but we’ve got the two big boys and they absolutely dote on Raf,” Ainsley, 30, told Grazia after the birth of her son last September.

blst3xs on

@ EMILY gosh thanks for making me chuckle!!! I read it and understood it???

mj366 on

LOL this shows the level of intelligence most visitors of this site have (as if it wasn’t already obvious from the ridiculous and judgmental comments). READ PROPERLY!

Tee on

With the rest of those of us who read the entire article and understand what it states. It clearly says, her first time being a biological Mom when she gave birth to their first son Raf (taken from an interview she did with the magazine Grazia). Wonder if he made another boy. He could have at least grinned a little for the picture…ah well, good luck.

Guest on

Sounds like someone is having a midlife crisis…

Shannon on

Enough already. Marry the woman or wrap it up.

Mac on

Isn’t he Mercy’s adoptive father? Why no mention of her and only the two boys?

Alicia on

To the people that are confused about her comment regarding being a biological mother for the first time. Read the WHOLE comment. It says that she said this “This is the first time I’ve been a biological mother but we’ve got the two big boys and they absolutely dote on Raf,” Ainsley, 30, told Grazia after the birth of her son last September.”

Last…September…she was talking about the birth of her now-10-month old.

jennie on

I had to read the last paragraph twice before I figured out what she was talking about. If you read it carefully and completely, it explains that she made the “biological mom” comment AFTER the birth of her son….”This is the first time I’ve been a biological mother but we’ve got the two big boys and they absolutely dote on Raf,” Ainsley, 30, told Grazia after the birth of her son last September.”

greengrass on

For those of you that are confused about her comment she is clearly making the comment after the birth of her first son. Come on, read the entire article. It’s not that difficult people. Geez.

NickyAngel on

It’s beautiful to read that he count David as his biological son as well.

icky on

If you click on the link that says “already are parents”, there is an article about the birth of their first son. It clearly states that she made the comment last September. Writers aren’t always clear with their words. That’s why the writings should be read more than once.

Anonymous on

Read the entire last paragraph. The article is from September of last year.

Candice on

It clearly says, Ainsley, 30, told Grazia after the birth of her son LAST September!!!!!

aBBy on

It says in the article “after the birth of her son LAST SEPTEMBER”

gb on

Mac, Madonna adopted Mercy on her own after the divorce.

none of your business on

I am totally pro choice; however, once you reproduce yourself (2 kids per couple), you should not receive any further tax right-offs. This would benefit the economy enormously.

havabrain on

Why doesn’t he let the woman have a couple?

angela on

Jacqui said “this is my first biological child” during an interview AFTER she gave birth to her first child.

granny on

who cares?

sherylynne on

Madonna is old enough to be Jacqui Ainsley’s mother! You go, Guy!

Coltan on

I hope she and he are enjoying Madonnas hard earned money. And I hope the kids know that there dad screwed a woman out of money to give them the life they will have.

Ole on

Love PEOPLE editorial, but good writers/editors wouldn’t cause confusion by lifting an old quote and dropping it in a new story without setting it up first. Yes, people should read carefully, BUUUUUT editors are supposed to make it easy to understand the who, what, where and WHEN.

TAMMY on

I TRUELY WISH PEOPLE TODAY, YOUNG OR IN THIER MID WHAT EVER AGE, WOULD STOP LOOK, AND REALLY LISTEN TO WHAT IS GOING ON IN TODAYS WORLD BEFORE EVEN CONSIDERING BRINGING ANOTHER INNOCENT HUMAN BEING INTO THIS FINANCAIALLY, CORRUPTED, GOING DOWN HILL SOCIETY RUNNED BY GOVERNMENTT OFFICIALS AND PRESIDENTS PAST AND PRESENT, WHO DONT HAVE A CLUE ON WHAT THEY ARE DOING!

SO MUCH BULL BEHIND THE SCENES GOING ON THAT WE DONT EVEN KNOW! ITS A SHAME WE CANT EVEN TRUST OUR OWN GOVERMENT. PEOPLE JUST STOP AND THINK ABOUT THIS SUBJECT FOR OUR KIDS RIGHT NOW AND HOW IT IS GOING BE AND THE PRICE THEY HAVE TO PAY FOR IT, EDUCATION……… FOR YOUR NEWBORN IN 18 YRS. COLLEGE, HOW MUCH?, GAS, CAR, INSURANCE, HOUSEING, ETC I COULD GO ON, THIS LEADS ME BACK TO LITTLE JOHNNY OR JENNIFER ARE ALREADY IN A LOT OF DEBT WITH NO WAY OUT………..:0(
KEEP HAVEING BABIES WE CANT AFFORD. NO SOCIAL SECURITY FOR THEM OR RETIREMENT PLANS, NO CIVAL SERVICE JOBS EITHER IN THE FUTURE….REALITIY.

Claire on

Why is everyone confused? It says it’s the first time she was a biol. mother “after the birth of her son last September” and she is a stepmother to the two “big boys” Madonna had with Guy. How is this hard to understand?

Eloise on

Guest: “Their home is probably the only stability Rocco and David have. Madonna is never with her kids – she uses them as accessories.”

–How absolutely terrible. And stability? They’ve been together some months (about the same time as Madonna has been with her own boyfriend). Madonna doesn’t usually travel when her kids are in school and they are with her throughout the school year. She sees them every single day. The boys only see Guy a few times a year for a week or two at a time max, per the custody agreement that was made public. Guy doesn’t even bother flying to NYC so he can see them more often than that, but does fly to Las Vegas and LA to party and gamble with other big Hollywood celebs. He even took Rafael on a plane to Las Vegas when he was only a few days old to gamble with other celebrities.

When Madonna travels, as she currently is on tour, her children are always with her. This has been stated by many people who have come in contact with her or her children. Lots of people have said that her children are actually pretty well-mannered, polite, and down-to-earth. That and they seem close and attached to her which likely means that she does spend time with them, otherwise they probably wouldn’t feel connected with her.

Guy took $75-95m of Madonna’s fortune and made approximately almost all of his $50m fortune when he was with her (since 1998), which she was entitled to half of, but she didn’t take a cent of his money. One of the things that Guy said after he divorced that he was happy about? That he made money. Tacky. Listen to Madonna’s song called, “Love Spent” and it all makes perfect sense.

Big Dude In Texas on

Way more beautiful than Madonna

Lekili on

Seriously readers, she mentioned 1st time mother as in Raf was her first born child. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out her quote.

Cindy Joint on

The quote about her being a biological mother for the first time was an old quote after the birth of her first child.
