Actor-producer Donovan Leitch Jr. and his fiancee, actress Libby Mintz, are expecting their first child, a boy.

Leitch's representative confirmed the news to Us Weekly. The couple became engaged in August.

Leitch, 47 -- son of 1960s hitmaker and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Donovan Leitch, and older brother of actress Ione Skye -- is separated from Scottish supermodel Kirsty Hume, whom he married in September 1997. She filed for divorce this summer. The two have a daughter, Violet, 10.

His most recent acting credit was a "Grey's Anatomy" episode in 2006. He previously appeared on "Birds of Prey" and "Sex and the City," and was in the cast of the 2002 series "Girls Club." He has since become a documentary producer.

Mintz's credits include bit roles in "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Eli Stone," "Modern Family" and other series, and she appeared in the films "Sydney White" and "Fired Up!"

Leitch dated Oscar-winner Gwyneth Paltrow in the 1990s, and was photographed kissing her at a Los Angeles Dodgers baseball game in September 2013, months before Paltrow and her husband, rocker Chris Martin, announced they were separating. Leitch said it was innocent, and Us called it "a friendly kiss on the lips."
