Colin Farrell all set to be a dad again

Hollywood actor Colin Farrell is to become a father for the second time. His girlfriend, Polish actress Alicja Bachleda-Curus, is pregnant with his second child, sources close to the actor have confirmed.

The pair met last year on the set of the film Ondine. They struck up a romance when they reunited to plan a publicity tour and they've been inseparable for the last seven months. The 26-year-old Polish actress, who co-stars with Farrell in the upcoming Neil Jordan-directed Irish film, was photographed at Los Angeles' LAX airport sporting a baby bump.

The lovestruck pair, who began dating shortly after Farrell split with writer Emma Forrest, have recently purchased a €1.5 million property together in Poland — where they intend to set up home.

Farrell, who is currently filming his latest project London Boulevard in the UK with Keira Knightly, has been spending all of his free time in Poland.

The 33-year-old Dubliner already has a six-year-old son, James, with Canadian model and ex-girlfriend Kim Bordenave, with whom he shares joint custody.

The reformed bad boy was said to be thrilled upon hearing the news and apparently has fallen head over heels for the mother-to-be. His friends say the actor now appears “ready to commit” to a relationship.

Speaking about his relationship with Alicja, sources say the striking actress has stolen the heart of Hollywood's most eligible bachelor. “Colin is over the moon that he is to become a dad again and he seems intent on settling down with Alicja,” said the source.

The actor met Alicja while filming Ondine, which tells the story of Syracuse, played by Farrell. He is an Irish fisherman whose life is transformed when he catches a beautiful and mysterious woman (Alicja Bachleda) in his nets.

The movie will be of one of two that Farrell has premiering at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival this Autumn. The other film the actor is promoting is called Triage.
