Kevin James the American comedian, actor and writer, has confirmed that his wife Steffiana De La Cruz is expecting the couple's third child. Speculation of a pregnancy had emerged after the pair appeared at the Chicago premiere of James' new movie 'The Dilemma' and the actor confirmed the news on Wednesday's 'Today' Show (12th January 2011).
The couple already have two daughters, 5-year-old 'Sienna-Marie' and 3-year-old 'Shea-Joelle' and the 45-year-old actor admitted that fatherhood got a little easier after the birth of their first child, saying, "You kinda loosen up with the second child a little bit, which is nice. The first child, I remember they just give it to you at the hospital, you're supposed to put her in the carseat and drive home", before adding, "I was 10-2 on the wheel in the right lane 30 miles an hour on the highway with the flashers going. Second kid, I had the top down. I was steering with my knees". James met his actress wife De La Cruz back in 2001 and the couple married in June 2004.
The actor is currently starring alongside Vince Vaughn in the Ron Howard directed comedy movie 'The Dilemma'. The film courted controversy before its release when 'The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation' criticised the original trailer for using the word 'gay' in a derogatory context.
