Russell Crowe and his wife, Danielle Spencer, are expecting their second child, the Cinderella Man
star announced to TV cameras on the Golden Globes red carpet Monday.
"Yes, Dani is pregnant again," said Crowe, according to newspapers Down Under, which had been reporting rumors of a pregnancy for a month. "She's due in July, so it's a French conception."
Crowe, 41, and Spencer, 34, already have a 2-year-old, son Charles Spencer Crowe, who was born Dec. 21, 2003, in Sydney. His parents married the previous April at the Gladiator
Oscar winner's Australian cattle property.
On the professional front, Crowe told FOX News at the pre-Globes Vanity Fair party that he and fellow Aussie Nicole Kidman will costar together in an epic to be directed by Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge
). Crowe called it the "Australian version of Gone with the Wind.
... It's set in the Australian country in the early 1930s. Baz will have to build a whole community where we're going to shoot, since it's a very remote area."
