'Inbetweeners' actor James Buckley to become a dad

Thursday June 9, 2011

James Buckley, star of The Inbetweeners, is preparing for fatherhood.

The 23-year-old is expecting his first child with his girlfriend of 10 months Clair Meek.

"Clair and I wanted to let everyone know we are having a baby," he told the Sun.

"Chuffed to say its going brilliantly.

"All very exciting with The Inbetweeners film out in August and baby soon after that. Can't quite believe my luck. Didn’t think I had it in me."

James and Scottish model Clair, 22, started dating last September and have been inseparable ever since.

In an interview last year, she insisted that the star could not be further from the sex-obsessed, foul-mouthed character he plays on the show.

"James could not be more different to Jay. He's quite shy and quiet and very thoughtful," she said.

"James takes care of me. We're not party animals. We're just normal and prefer a night in watching TV."
