“Superman Returns” actor Brandon Routh is set to become a dad.
Routh’s wife Courtney Ford is pregnant with their first child and due to give birth this summer.
The actor said he is thrilled to be able to finally share his happy news because he hated keeping the baby news a secret from the cast and crew of his television show, “Partners”.
The actor said, “It’s been so hard keeping the news to ourselves. Everyone on set keeps asking, ‘Do you have kids?’ and I’ve had to say, ‘Well… not yet!’ It’s the truth. The baby hasn’t been born yet!”
Courtney has been trying to hide her growing baby belly from her co-workers on the television show “Parenthood”.
The actress explained, “It started getting difficult to hide what was happening. Flu and food poisoning excuses only work for so long, and by the last episode I could no longer button my pants! I just tried to joke that I had a big lunch!”
Brandon and Courtney married in 2007.
