It may sound like a storyline from a soap opera, but for Sir Michael Gambon, his wife and his mistress it's reality.

The 68 year old Harry Potter actor has become a father again with his girlfriend Philippa Hart.

The baby boy is the second son the couple have together despite Gambon still being married to Lady Anne who is fully aware of his second family.

He currently splits his time between the house he shares with his wife of 45 years in Kent and Chiswick visiting Philippa and his two sons “a few times a week”.

A family friend told The Sun, “Philippa gave birth at a London hospital without complications and little Michael is a beautiful bouncing baby. It is a very strange set of circumstances worthy of a film script in itself.

“But Michael is open with his wife and she accepts the second relationship, though there have been rows in the past.”
