Hollywood's Next Hot Dad: Josh Hartnett

For his next big role, he'll be handling poop. So much poop.

Josh Hartnett is about to get his membership card for the Dad Squad.

MTV News has confirmed with the "Penny Dreadful" actor's reps that he and his girlfriend Tamsin Egerton are now expecting their first child together.

The couple met on the set of "The Lovers" back in 2011 and started dating the next year, after his split from actress Amanda Seyfried.

Hartnett's been preparing for his finest role as father-to-be for a while now. He told Playboy earlier this year: "I’d have to get a car that’s safe for my kid. I don’t have a kid yet, but that’s the idea coming into my head these days."

We can think of a couple of other items he and Tamlin should also consider for the new baby:

  1. A Mustachifier

    If the baby is going to carry the Hartnett name, he or she *needs* to win the 'stache game. A mustache pacifier is a MUST.

  2. A "Black Hawk Down" Toy

    But only for when the baby's older, of course, because this thing just screams choking hazard.

  3. A "40 Days and 40 Nights"-Themed Nursing Bra

    Since he starred in a movie that had him actually dream-soaring through a vat of cloud boobs, there's gotta be some way to incorporate this into a custom-made nursing bra, right?

Congrats, Josh Hawtnett!
