IF you noticed a spring in Clive Palmer's step as he touts his Titanic-like tilt for Canberra, it's because the billionaire has a baby on board.

The mischief-making mining magnate told that his wife, Bulgarian-born Anna, is eight weeks pregnant.

"I think, like most Australians who are having babies, I'm pretty happy about it," he said.

"I found out a couple of weeks ago and it's a big celebration for me. I look forward to becoming prime minister and a new dad at the same time.

"(Anna) is excited and happy. Our other children Michael, Emily and Mary are all excited about it."
