I can exclusively report that X-Men director Bryan Singer is going to be a dad.
“I can confirm that Michelle Clunie and Bryan Singer are happily expecting a baby together in early 2015,” Singer’s rep tells me exclusively. “Best friends for 25 years, mother and father are both very excited about the upcoming birth and look forward to co-parenting the child together. The pair have been planning this baby for years and have been trying for the last two.”
Despite an earlier report, we’re told Clunie, an actress most famous for her work on Queer As Folk, is not a surrogate.
Just last month, it was revealed that Singer is officially returning to direct X-Men: Apocalypse, a source confirms to E! News. The upcoming X-Men flick will follow this year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past and will mark Singer’s fourth X-Men film.
Singer isn’t the only one returning for the superhero franchise’s next installment. Stars Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters and many other members will also reportedly be returning.
Back in June, Singer teased a photo of the script treatment for X-Men: Apocalypse. “@xmenmovies #xmen,” Singer simply captioned the sneak-peek pic, which was his first Instagram post ever.
