The ‘Pulp Fiction’ actor and his actress-and-model wife – who have 10-year-old daughter Ella Bleu together – have confirmed they are expecting a “new addition” to their brood just 16 months after their son Jett tragically died from a seizure aged 16.

The 56-year-old actor wrote on his official website: “It’s impossible to keep a secret. especially one as wonderful as this.

“We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone that we are expecting a new addition to our family.

“Love, John, Kelly and Ella.”

Even though Kelly – who is believed to be three months pregnant – is 47, the couple believe their timing is perfect.

America’s Star Magazine reported: “Kelly is about three months pregnant. Both she and John are absolutely over the moon – they knew in their hearts that the time was right for this to happen.”

It appears as though Kelly’s pregnancy was planned.

A few years ago she hinted: “I thought I would get pregnant when Ella was about four. Then I wanted to work a little bit more, and all of a sudden she’s seven.”

John and Kelly have struggled to get over the passing of their eldest son Jett, who died in January 2009 during a holiday in the Bahamas.

Meanwhile, the couple’s two pet dogs died in a shock accident at a US airport last Thursday (13.05.10).
