Bruce Willis is about to be a dad -- for the fourth time.
Bruce and wife Emma Heming are expecting their first child together, a rep for the actor confirmed to People.
It will be the fourth child for Willis, 56. He has three children - daughters Rumer, 23; Scout, 20; and Tallulah, 17 - with ex-wife, Demi Moore.
Bruce and Emma, 35, are expecting their bundle of joy in early 2012, the rep noted.
The couple tied the knot in March 2009 at Bruce's home in Turks & Caicos.
Later that year, Bruce told Access Hollywood that more kids certainly weren't out of the question.
"Well you know anything is possible," he said in September 2009 at the premiere of his film "Surrogates."
"It has been suggested that we should begin breeding immediately," he joked. "I don't know. You can't predict the future, can you?"
