Christian Slater is to be a father, reports New York's Daily News. The mother is his girlfriend, Ryan Haddon, a TV executive, says the News. "The couple met last summer while hiking in Malibu and have been inseparable ever since," according to the paper, which says the child is due in spring. "He's really excited about the responsibilities of fatherhood and where this will take him," said a publicist for Slater, who reportedly has been attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings regularly since his highly publicized 1997 brouhaha with L.A. cops and subsequent incarceration. The actor, 29, is currently starring in the Broadway drama "Side Man."
