Peter Doherty is about to become a father for the third time.
The Babyshambles star, 43, reportedly announced that he and his wife Katia de Vidas were expecting, live on stage at a concert in Strasbourg on Monday night.
He has been in a relationship with Katia since 2012.

His love: Katia played the keyboard on stage during the concert – she married Peter in September last year and they have been together since 2012
Multiple sources confirmed the news to MailOnline on Tuesday, but there was no mention of the news on her or Katia’s social media.
A source said, “They were happily talking about the news with the fans after the show who were waiting to talk to them.”
Pete married Katia, who performs in his band, in a private ceremony at a lavish French retreat in September 2021 – just two days after confirming their engagement.
It’s okay: Pete has been heroin-free for three-and-a-half years, moved in with his Puta Madres teammate Katia in France after giving up his bad-boy lifestyle
The couple tied the knot at the Domaine Saint Clair hotel in the French town of Etretat – their home for three years – while The Libertines and the couple’s band Puta Madres provided music.
Pete has been heroin-free for three-and-a-half years, moved in with his Puta Madres teammate Katia in France after giving up his bad boy lifestyle.
He shot to fame in the mid-2000s as the frontman of indie band The Libertines, but came to national attention when he dated model Kate Moss.
The couple met on his 31st birthday in January 2005, and he said shortly after that he had “really found love”.
Their turbulent romance briefly ended when Pete failed to complete a stay in rehab in Arizona, USA, with Kate saying at the time that she had ‘various personal issues that I need to sort out’ .

He even drew a portrait of himself and Kate using crayons and his own blood in 2005.
Pete also scrawled “I love Kate 4 eva” on the windscreen of his Jaguar after leaving court following a drug offence.
He and Kate eventually reunited and went through rehab together, but were seen in many public rows before finally going their separate ways in July 2007 after getting engaged.
Pete then called her a “nasty old rag” in an interview with Metro after their final split in 2007, months after he proposed to her.
Pete has a son, Astile, 19, from his relationship with Lisa Moorish, and it was reported in 2009 that the singer had previously been banned from seeing his son because of his drug use.
But after going to rehab and getting clean, he became a much more active dad.
Lisa told Metro in 2009: “Peter has intermittent issues with his recovery, so it was a very difficult decision to make.”
“But when he came out of rehab last year and started to put his life in order, I thought the time was right. I want Astile to have a father.
Pete also has a daughter, Aisling, with model Lindi Hingston, who shared the news of her daughter’s arrival a year after she was born.
A week after Linda broke the news, Pete said: ‘The baby girl was two months premature. I said I’d try to be there for the birth… Yeah, she’s mine.
While his most famous relationship was with Kate, Pete also had a fling with late singer Amy Winehouse before her death in 2011.
Speaking to The Mail On Sunday in 2012, he said: ‘Amy and I were lovers. I loved him then and, well, I still love him today.
“But towards the end, as only lovers can do, she got quite mean and cruel to me. She didn’t suffer from fools… and believe me, she had a bad right hook.
In the past, Pete has pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine, heroin, cannabis and ketamine.
In 2012 he was kicked out of a luxury rehab clinic in Thailand after claiming he was a bad influence on other patients and hadn’t tried hard enough to kick his habit of heroin.
Peter said earlier last year that he slept a lot, ate French cheese and drank water after moving to Normandy.
He generally enjoys a much slower pace of life these days and is said to have taken up the boules style sport, pétanque.
