Jean Dujardin ‘to be a dad again’

Jean Dujardin’s partner Nathalie Péchalat is supposedly expecting their first child together, The Artist actor’s third tot.

The 43-year-old French actor has been in a relationship with 31-year-old former Olympic ice dancer Nathalie Péchalat for over a year now.

And a source tells People magazine the pair are now expecting their first child together. Apparently Nathalie is due to give birth sometime this winter.

Jean is already parent to sons Jules, 14, and Simon, 13, who he shares with his first wife Gaëlle Dujardin. He and Gaëlle called it quits on their marriage in 2003. Jean then tied the knot again with his second spouse Alexandra Lamy in 2009 but their union ended four years later.

The suave Frenchman bagged the coveted Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of George Valentin in 2011 silent movie The Artist. He is the first French thespian in history to have won the Oscar for Best Actor.

But Jean has previously joked about taking home the illustrious trophy.

"I've always had a wry take on things that has saved me from many things in my life. When I received the Oscar I enjoyed it, but at the same time I couldn't help thinking there was something completely absurd about my being there, with my c**p English and this statue in my hand," he laughed to the Eurostar's Metropolitan magazine.

"It's absurd and I think it needs to stay that way... I now have an Oscar on my shelf. It's very handsome but it's not like I'm cleaning it every day."
