Congratulations to Kelsey Grammer
! The former Frasier
star and his new girlfriend Kayte Walsh are expecting their first child together, her father has confirmed. Grammer and Walsh started dating after he split from estranged wife Camille Donatacci this year.
Kate’s dad Alan Walsh -- who, at 53, is two years younger than his daughter’s new partner -- said: “I don’t know how long they have been together and I have not met him yet, but I’m looking forward to it. We just found out about her pregnancy a couple of days ago. I think they met in New York socially because she works for Virgin Airways and often stops over in America.
“The main thing is for them both to be happy and they are -- they have just hit it off together.”
Kelsey is in the middle of getting divorced from Camille, and he's ready to finalize the split as soon as possible so he can focus on his new relationship.
A source said: "He's pushing for a quickie divorce because things are moving quickly with his new girlfriend."
The couple married in 1997 and have two children together, eight-year-old Mason Olivia and five-year-old Jude Gordan.
Kelsey, 55, also has a 26-year-old daughter Spencer from his marriage to dance instructor Doreen Alderman and another daughter, Kandace, 18, from his relationship with make-up artist Barrie Buckner.
