Kelsey Grammer is to become a father for the fifth time
The former `Frasier` star and his new girlfriend Kayte Walsh - who he began dating following his split from estranged wife Camille Donatacci - are expecting their first child together, the 29-year-old air hostess- father has confirmed.
Kate`s dad Alan Walsh - who, at 53, is two years younger than his daughter`s new partner - said: "I don`t know how long they have been together and I have not met him yet, but I`m looking forward to it. We just found out about her pregnancy a couple of days ago. I think they met in New York socially because she works for Virgin Airways and often stops over in America.
"The main thing is for them both to be happy and they are - they have just hit it off together."
Kelsey is in the middle of getting divorced from Camille and is now keen for it to be finalised as soon as possible so he can focus on his new relationship.
A source said: "He`s pushing for a quickie divorce because things are moving quickly with his new girlfriend."
The couple married in 1997 and have two children together, Mason Olivia, eight, and Jude Gordan, five.
Kelsey, 55, also has a 26-year-old daughter Spencer from his marriage to dance instructor Doreen Alderman and another daughter, Kandace, 18, from his relationship with make-up artist Barrie Buckner.
