Sometimes sober actor David Arquette is set to be a father again after learning that his girlfriend of two year, entertainment reporter Christina McLarty, is four months pregnant, David already shares a daughter, Coco, with ex-wife Courteney Cox.
McLarty was briefly wed to Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis, but this will be her first child. The pregnancy was reportedly “unexpected,” but the prospective parents have taken the news in stride.
It remains to be seen, however, whether pending fatherhood the second time around will encourage David to put down the bottle for good. In a radio interview on The Howard Stern Show last summer, the actor admitted that he’s no longer sober, despite a well-fought two-and-a-half year stretch of sobriety.
The Scream star, who was admitted to rehab in December 2010 for alcoholism, made the confession on air saying:
“I’m drinking again… I’m a drinker. I drink a lot.”
Arquette sought treatment again for alcohol abuse in January 2011, following his split from then-wife Courteney.
