Actor Russell Crowe confirmed reports his wife Danielle Spencer is expecting their second child, at a concert on Saturday (14JAN06).

The GLADIATOR star, 41, and singer/actress Spencer, 35, already have a two-year-old son CHARLES and have been married for just under three years.

Reports emerged last month (DEC05) that Spencer was pregnant again, with the couple's publicist refusing to confirm or deny the rumours.

However, now Spencer has passed her first trimester, delighted daddy Crowe was proud to share the news with 500 fans at his band's The Ordinary Fear Of God gig at the Coffs Hotel in Coffs Harbour in New South Wales, Australia.

The new addition to the family is expected in July (06).
