Vince Vaughn is to become a father.

The 'Wedding Crashers' actor and wife Kyla Weber are expecting their first child together and the pair are thrilled with the news.

A source said: "They're having so much fun together and they're so excited to be first-time parents!"

It is not yet known when the tot is due.

Vince - who previously dated Jennifer Aniston - married real estate agent Kyla in January near his home city of Chicago in front of family and friends.

The nuptials took place in an "opulent, historic house at Lake Forest Academy".

Vince proposed to Kyla on Valentine's Day last year (14.02.09) after realising she was the one for him.

He said: "I figured this is not a ship to be missed because I will not forget this date. So Valentine's Day was the day that I asked her."

The 40-year-old funnyman met Kyla through a friend and knew almost immediately he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her

He said: "She makes me laugh. She is wonderful. I'm just thrilled. It's the first time that I really want to have kids."
