Charlie Sheen and Brooke MuellerCharlie Sheen has announced that he’s set to become a dad for the fourth time as new wife Brooke Mueller is already pregnant.

After the couple married at the end of May, they denied rumours that Brooke was pregnant but insisted that was the “next step”.

Now the Two and a Half Men star has confirmed the news, saying: “Brooke and I are thrilled.

“She’s the best stepmom to [existing children] Sam, Lola and Cassandra could ever hope for. Seeing her love and affection with those three, I know she’ll be an amazing mom. Unless I bat 100 percent, perhaps a boy awaits us.”

Four year old Sam and three year old Lola are Charlie’s daughters from his previous marriage to Denise Richards and 23 year old Cassandra is his daughter by former girlfriend Paula Profit.

Charlie and Brooke’s child is due early in the new year.
