Journalist Jonathan Dimbleby is to become a father again at the age of 64. He and his second wife Jessica Ray , a publisher, are expecting their second child together.
The new arrival is due in July, the radio host tells the Daily Telegraph. "I don't know whether it is going to be a boy or a girl. We didn't want to ask the sex, but it is tremendously exciting."
Jessica, 32, gave birth to the couple's daughter Daisy in 2007, three months after she and Jonathan were wed. At the time the veteran broadcaster caused a stir by admitting he was more attentive to Daisy than he had been to his first two children, who are now in their 30s.
"While love for your children is unconditional, I find myself being more consistently attentive to this little one than I was first time round," he confessed.
