The Douglas dynasty is expanding! Michael Douglas is set to become a grandfather for the first time, following the news that his eldest son Cameron Douglas is having a baby with girlfriend Vivian Thibes. The exciting news was confirmed by People, with a source saying that everyone is "thrilled" for Cameron and adding, "Michael is looking forward to being a grandfather."

Cameron, 38, and Vivian, a 39-year-old yoga instructor originally from Brazil, were first pictured together in August 2016. Cameron was previously sentenced to five years in prison for drug-related offences in 2010, but his term was extended further after he admitted to smuggling drugs into jail. He was placed in solitary confinement from 2012 until 2014, and was released to a halfway house in August 2016.

Michael Douglas's son, Cameron Douglas, is expecting a baby with girlfriend Vivian Thibes

It has been reported that Cameron will write a tell-all book about his experiences. A source told Page Six: "Cameron will talk about his struggle being the son and the grandson of Hollywood icons, and then his bad decisions which led him to jail, and then solitary confinement. He is staying low-key after his release and plans to spend time with his mother and father. He believes this is a new start, and a chance at a new life."

Cameron is 72-year-old Michael's only child with his first wife Diandra Luker; the former couple were married from 1977 until 1995. He has two half-siblings – Dylan Michael, 17, and Carys Zeta, 14, from Michael's marriage to Catherine Zeta-Jones.
