Congratulations to actor Mel Gibson and his girlfriend, Rosalind Ross – the couple are expecting their first child together!

Fatherhood isn’t anything new to Mel, however, since this will be his ninth child. A source told People.com: “Mel and Rose are so excited about the baby. Mel loves being a dad and he and Rose can’t wait to be parents together. The last two years have been some of his happiest years he’s ever had.”

Mel and Rosalind have been dating for two years; she met the actor when applying for a job at his production company. Mel has eight children from previous relationships: Hannah, 36, Christian, 34, Edward, 34, William, 31, Louis, 28, Milo, 26, Thomas, 17, and Lucia, 6.
