LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bruce Willis is about to become a father for the fourth time.

A representative for the 56-year-old actor says he is expecting a baby with wife Emma Heming Willis. Publicist Samantha Mast says this is the first child for the couple, who were married in March, 2009.

Willis and his wife are “overjoyed with this news and they look forward to welcoming this newest addition into their family,” according to a statement released Wednesday.

Willis has three daughters — 23-year-old Rumer, 20-year-old Scout and 17-year-old Tallulah Belle — from his previous marriage to Demi Moore.
