A baby for Bryan Singer. The X-Men director is expecting his first child, his rep confirmed on Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Singer, 49, is becoming a father with his best friend Michelle Clunie. He and the Make It or Break It star, 44, have been close pals for 25 years.

"Mother and father are both very excited about the upcoming birth and look forward to co-parenting the child together," Singer's rep said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "The pair have been planning this baby for years and have been trying for the last two."

 

Multiple outlets confirm that the baby is due in 2015. 

The future parents do have a romantic history, as Singer confirmed to Out magazine earlier this year that his first serious relationship was with Clunie, when he was 23 years old.
