Hairdresser Nicky Clarke expecting first child with girlfriend Kelly Simpkin

Congratulations are in order for Nicky Clarke, who has announced that he is to become a dad again at the age of 58.

Hairdressing legend Nicky is set to become a dad for the third time after confirming the pregnancy of his girlfriend Kelly exclusively to Hello! magazine.

The 58-year-old is already father to Harrison, 30, and Tellisa, 28, from a previous marriage, but the baby will be his first child with Kelly.

The loved-up couple have revealed that their little one is due in August, and that they’re both ‘very happy’ about having a family together.

Speaking to Hello! Kelly said: ‘It doesn’t seem real. We’re very happy.’

With Kelly being a stylist to stars and Nicky on speed dial for A-listers, there’s no doubt this little bundle of joy will be one of the best dressed tots around.

Kelly has admitted that she’s already started thinking about baby outfits, and that fashion is a passion the couple share together.

She said: ‘Nicky will be a cool dad. He’s so thoughtful. He’s into his fashion. I can’t wait for us to start buying baby outfits.’

Speaking of his parenting style, Nicky gave some insight into what he’s like as a dad.

The father-to-be jokingly said of bringing up his children the first time around: ‘It was a long time ago’.

He carried on to reveal that as a parent, he is relaxed and ‘laid back’, striking a balance between routine and enjoying some treats with the kids.

‘I’m quite laid back. Obviously, a routine is important but we always took my kids to, say, restaurants. We didn’t let a routine spoil our family life.’

Although Nicky and Kelly are not yet married, the glamorous couple revealed that tying the knot is definitely on the cards.

Over Christmas Nicky gifted his girlfriend of nine years with an impressive Stephen Webster diamond and rose gold ring, although the pair say they don’t like the word ‘fiancé’.

Kelly revealed: ‘We both cringe at the word ‘fiancé’, whilst Nicky agreed: ‘I don’t like it all. We don’t want to make a thing of it, and for everyone to ask us whether we’ve set a date.’

However, fashion designer Kelly admitted she’s keen to start thinking about her wedding dress.

‘Like most girls, it’s something I’ve dreamt of since I was five. It’s a big thing for me and, now that I can design my own dress, the world’s my oyster. But we’ve agreed to get married and, when we do, there’ll probably be quite a boho, relaxed, 1970s vibe to the wedding.’
