Les Dennis 'delighted' to become father for third time

Thursday October 7, 2010

Les Dennis is to become a father for the third time after announcing his wife Claire Nicholson is pregnant with their second child.

The 56-year-old comedian and Claire are already parents to two-year-old Eleanor and are "delighted" at the prospect of adding to their family.

Les is also father to 30-year-old Philip from his first marriage. He spoke recently about how he felt to be a dad again in his fifties.

"Now I have the time and energy - well sometimes - to enjoy Eleanor to the full. She has brought such joy into my life."

He admitted to having apprehensions about his age.

"I had to walk my sister Mandy down the aisle recently and I couldn’t help wondering where I'd be when Eleanor gets married. But I'm concentrating on living in the present."
