Charles Dance who is to be a dad again at 65 PA

Veteran actor Charles Dance is to become a dad again - at the age of 65.

The Daily Mail reports that Mr Dance is expecting a child with his fiancée Eleanor Boorman, a 39-year-old artist and former model. The baby will be Miss Boorman's first child, whilst Charles has two grown up children from his first marriage.

Miss Boorman told the Mail: "Fingers crossed everything will be fine. We're both thrilled," whilst a friend of the couple said Charles is "pleased and happy" at the news.

Mr Dance's marriage to Joanna Haythorn, a sculptress, ended eight years ago. They have a son, Oliver, 36, and a daughter Rebecca, 27.

Charles and Eleanor have been together since 2008. Their baby is due in March.

What do you think of men fathering kids in their 60s? Happy news or a teeny bit selfish?
