Walsh's father, Alan, told Britian's Daily Mail that his daughter was pregnant, adding adding that he has not yet met the actor and found out about the pregnancy "a couple days ago."

According to the report, Walsh is originally from Bristol, England, and works for Virgin Atlantic Airways. At 29, she is 26 years younger than Grammer, who is 55.

Grammer's publicist, Stan Rosenfeld, confirmed the pregnancy to People magazine, saying, "Kayte and Kelsey are happy to confirm what Kayte's father told the London Daily Mail is true."

The baby news comes one month after Grammer's wife of 13 years, Camille Donatacci, filed for divorce. She is seeking primary physical custody of their daughter Mason, 8, and son Jude, 5, as well as spousal support.
