Mike Myers has scrapped an appearance at the Miami International Film Festival in Florida on Tuesday (11Mar14) as he prepares for the imminent arrival of his second child.

The Shrek star was set to make an appearance at the event to speak about his documentary Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon, about the hell-raising music manager behind Alice Cooper and Jimi Hendrix.

However, the funnyman has now decided to stay in New York to look after his heavily pregnant wife Kelly, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.

Shep Gordon himself and Miami Heat basketball team boss Pat Riley will now attend a question and answer session in Myers' place.
