Kelsey Grammer's wife Kayte Walsh is expecting twins.
The 56-year-old actor - who married the former flight attendant in February 2011 - is "really looking forward" to welcoming the new arrivals, and revealed Kayte is in her second trimester.
He said backstage at the Golden Globe Awards last night (15.01.12): "I'm really looking forward to meeting these new arrivals in our lives."
Paying tribute to his wife, he added: "She's one of the most loving, amazing, warm human beings I've ever met."
The 'Frasier' star already has four children - Spencer, 28, and Greer, 19, from previous relationships and 10-year-old Mason and Jude, seven, with ex-wife Camille Donatacci, best known for her appearance on 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'.
Kelsey and Kayte previously suffered heartache when she had a miscarriage in October 2010.
The actor recently revealed he met Kayte six months before he announced his split from Camille and enjoyed a "magical" few days getting to know her better.
He said: "We actually met in the air on a plane to England. It was very romantic, she was working on the plane. We went out for coffee several days later and had this magical night in the snow in London around Christmas time. It was two years ago."
