Actor Ross Kemp's ex-partner Nicola Coleman gives birth to son


Ross Kemp has become a dad for the first time.

The former EastEnders star’s ex-partner Nicola Coleman gave birth to their son 2 weeks ago at a hospital near her home in Ruislip, north-west London.

‘I have had a baby boy and Ross is the father,’ confirms the make-up artist, 36. ‘He will be involved.’

No further details about the child have been revealed.

Ross, 46, and Nicola dated on/off for 4 years but split earlier this year after she fell pregnant.

He is now in a relationship with a mystery blonde.

‘I don’t speak about my private life,’ he tells the Mail On Sunday. ‘A child is always a blessing.’

Ross was married to Rebekah Wade, the editor of The Sun, from November 2005 to March 2009. They divorced after the actor admitted adultery.
