Bryan announced he and Michelle were expecting their first child back in October. His representative Simon Halls told E! Online, "I can confirm that Michelle Clunie and Bryan Singer are happily expecting a baby together in early 2015."
"Best friends for 25 years, mother and father are both very excited about the upcoming birth and look forward to co-parenting the child together," Simon added, "The pair have been planning this baby for years and have been trying for the last two."
At that time, rumors that Michelle was a surrogate mother for Bryan emerged. TMZ later confirmed that she was not a surrogate and she would be listed as the mother of the baby on the birth certificate.
Bryan will next direct "X-Men: Apocalypse". Set to hit theaters in the U.S. on May 27, 2016, the superhero flick will have its original cast members including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Evan Peters back in their respective roles.
