Christian Bale and wife have had a second child

Bang Showbiz

CHRISTIAN Bale has become a father again.

The 'Out of the Furnace' star, 40, and his wife Sibi Blazic, who already have nine-year-old daughter Emmeline together, welcomed their second child into world on Monday (18.08.14), according to E! News.

The couple first sparked rumours they were having another child together after the brunette beauty was spotted with a blossoming baby bump at the Oscar awards, held in Los Angeles, in March.

The 'American Hustle' star remained tight-lipped about possibly becoming a dad again at the glamorous event, but was spotted pointing at his wife's stomach when he bumped into a friend.

Christian previously gushed how being a father is "the best thing ever" and he was never prepared enough for how his life would change.

He said in 2012: "Nothing can prepare you for fatherhood. It's the best thing ever. I don't want to leave my daughter's side for one second."

Meanwhile, the hunky star, who married Sibi in 2000, never planned to tie the knot after watching his loved ones go through a bitter divorce when he was younger.

He explained previously: "I never planned to marry. Everyone was divorced in my family so I didn't have very healthy ideas about marriage. Then I met Sibi and suddenly it seemed a fantastic idea."
