It turns out James Marsden is becoming a daddy for the third time.

E! News exclusively confirms that the X-Men star, who separated from his wife Lisa Linde in 2011, has learned that he will be welcoming a new bundle of joy into the world.

So, who's the mommy?

No, it's not Kirsten Dunst, they were just gettin' hot and heavy for a movie.

Apparently, the mother-to-be is a model who Marsden was dating shortly after his split with Linde.

"A girl he dated after he separated from his wife has told him she is four months pregnant." a source close to the expecting mystery woman told E! News. "She is very excited to be a mom."

The actor was in Hawaii last week being honored at the Maui Film Festival with the Nova Award, and he didn't seem too preoccupied with a pregnancy bombshell (at least he didn't show it).

Marsden was seen hangin' at the beach, going for an almost-all-day mountain bike ride and was even spotted at a local bar doing karaoke ("Bennie and the Jets," maybe?).

James already has two children with his estranged wife, a son Jack Holden and a daughter Mary James. Lisa filed for divorce in September 2011 after being married for slightly more than 11 years.
