British actor Simon Pegg has publicly confirmed that he and wife Maureen McCann are expecting their first child. Speaking backstage after BRIT Awards on Wednesday, February 18, he said, "My wife is five months pregnant. We haven't announced it yet as we want to keep it hush-hush."
"I'm hoping for a baby girl," the 39-year-old star revealed before then quickly adding, "but I really don't mind what we have. We're thinking of having it in America as the baby will then have dual citizenship. I'm really looking forward to it. It's going to be amazing." Maureen is due to give birth to the baby in June.
Simon Pegg, best known for his role as Shaun in 2004 film "Shaun of the Dead", wed Maureen McCann in July 2005. They currently reside in Finsbury Park, London. Awaiting for the birth of his first child, Simon has become the godfather to close friends Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter, Apple.
