The Dark Knight is about to welcome a prince or princess! Christian Bale  who was up for an Oscar last weekend for American Hustle  and his wife are expecting a baby.

Christian, 40, and wife Sibi Blazic, 43, have been married since January 2000 and they have one child, eight-year-old daughter Emmeline. The couple has yet to officially confirm the new pregnancy, but sources have confirmed the news to both E! Online and People

Sibi  a former model and makeup artist — walked the Oscar red carpet (see photo at left) with Christian on March 2. She was clearly showing at the time, which spurred pregnancy rumors.

Christian has been acting since he was a child, starring in his first film, Steven Spielberg's Empire of the Sun, when he was 14. He went on to star in films like Newsies, and his breakthrough as an adult was with 2000's American Psycho. He is best known for starring in the recent Batman film trilogy, and while he lost the Oscar last weekend to Matthew McConaughey, he won an Oscar for 2010's The Fighter

We wish the happy family all the best during this exciting time.
