Tuesday August 18, 2009

Roman Abramovich, the billionaire owner of Chelsea Football Club, is due to become a father for the sixth time.

The 42-year-old's stunning Russian girlfriend, fashion designer and socialite Daria Zhukova is said to be six months pregnant with their first child together.

A source close to the couple - who have been dating for three years - says they are both "ecstatic and excited" at the news.

Roman, who already has two sons and three daughters with his ex-wife Irina, is thought to have told close friends and family last month.
