Baby joy for celebrity hairdresser Nicky Clarke

Celebrity hairdresser Nicky Clarke is to become a dad again - at the age of 58.

The stylist-to-the-stars and his girlfriend Kelly Simpkin, 35, are expecting their first child together.

Clarke, who is already dad to Harrison, 30, and Tellisa, 28, told Hello! magazine his previous experience of being a father would be a bonus this time around.

"It was a long time ago," he joked.

"I'm quite laid back. Obviously, a routine is important but we always took my kids to, say, restaurants. We didn't let a routine spoil our family life."

The baby is due in August and f ashion designer Simpkin told the magazine: "It doesn't seem real. We're very happy.

"Nicky will be a cool dad. He's so thoughtful. He's into his fashion. I can't wait for us to start buying baby outfits."

The couple have been together for nine years.

"We've agreed to get married and, when we do, there'll probably be quite a boho, relaxed, 1970s vibe to the wedding," Simpkin said.

"Like most girls, it's something I've dreamt of since I was five. It's a big thing for me and, now that I can design my own dress, the world's my oyster.
