‘Cheers’ (or jeers?) are in order for Kelsey Grammer.
The ‘Cheers‘ star is expecting his 5th child with Virgin Airlines flight attendant Kayte Walsh, it was revealed Thursday.
Grammer, 55, and Walsh, 26 years his junior, have reportedly known each other for about a month. Grammer filed for divorce from his third wife Camille five weeks ago, claiming at the time that no third party was involved in the split.
Walsh’s father spilled the beans on the baby news to UK’s The Daily Mail: “It’s great news and we are very pleased for them both,” Alan Walsh told the paper. “I don’t know how long they have been together and I have not met him yet, but I’m looking forward to it. We just found out about her pregnancy a couple of days ago.”
A rep for the actor confirmed the news: “Kayte (Walsh) and Kelsey (Grammer) are happy to confirm what Kayte’s father told the London Daily Mail is true.”
Grammer’s 13-year marriage to former Playboy model Camille Donatacci, 41, ended in July when the actor filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences.” They have two children, Mason, 8, and Jude, 5. Grammer also has two older daughters from two previous relationships: 18-year-old Greer, and 26-year-old Spencer Grammer, who stars in ABC Family’s ‘Greek.’
Sources tell the New York Post that Grammer is pushing for a “quickie divorce” because he is “deeply in love” with the young blonde.
Camille Donatacci is among the cast of Bravo’s upcoming ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,’ along with Paris Hilton’s aunts. She is seeking primary custody of the couple’s children; Grammer reportedly asked a judge not to grant spousal support, in an attempt to keep her away from ‘Frasier‘s millions.
