Nightclub owner Peter Stringfellow is to become a father again at the age of 72.

He made the announcement that his wife Bella, 30, was expecting during a private party at his central London club, Angels.

Stringfellow, who has two grown-up children and married Bella in 2009, said they are expecting their first child in August.

He told the Daily Mirror the couple were "obviously overjoyed".

He said: "My last child was born 48 years ago, so I'm up for the challenge.

"I know it's going to be tough so, of course we'll have nannies - a night nanny, and a day nanny and a holiday nanny and an aeroplane nanny. I'm ready for the hardship."
