Guy Ritchie is expecting a baby with his new-ish girlfriend


I’ll admit something I never expected to have to write: I really, really like Guy Ritchie. I used to think he was nothing special, but he’s grown on me so much over the past few years. I absolutely adored his last two films, RockNRolla and Sherlock Holmes, and I love the way he’s conducted himself post-divorce from Madonna. He didn’t say one bad word against her, and he’s even gone out of his way to defend her. By all accounts, they successfully co-parent, and he’s very involved in the lives of his sons Rocco and David, as well as his former step-daughter Lola. Basically, I just think he seems decent. So will this news ruin my Guy-love? The Mail reports that Guy Ritchie’s “girlfriend of a year” Jacqui Ainsley (the woman in these photos) is expecting his baby:

Guy Ritchie’s girlfriend Jacqui Ainsley is is expecting the couple’s first child. The 29-year-old model is due to give birth in September, providing a half brother or sister to the children Ritchie had with Madonna.

The baby will be his second biological child after son Rocco, 10, with Madonna. He is also father to their adopted son from Malawi, David, six. Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels director Ritchie, 42, has been dating the leggy blonde for just over a year. During their marriage he helped raise her daughter Lourdes, now 14, though she remained close to her father Carlos Leon.

A friend said yesterday, ‘They have been keen to start a family. We expect to hear wedding bells next year.’

A source revealed, ‘Jacqui was crying with joy when she found out. They went on holiday because Guy is desperate for her to take it easy. He won’t let her do anything more strenuous than argue over baby names.’

In January Miss Ainsley said, ‘I’ve known since I was very little that I want to be a mummy.’

Guy and Jacqui have been together a year but they kept their romance under wraps until the Essex-born beauty was caught leaving his London home after spending the night in June.

According to the News Of The World, Jacqui will sell her Southend, Essex, flat and move into the film maker’s £6 million Marylebone mansion when renovations on the property are complete.

The couple were spotted inspecting the Grade-I listed home last week after regaining access following squatters moving in February. The squatter gang claimed they were running a temporary school, offering other squatters classes in tarot, house occupation and using public transport for free, but moved on to a disused pub on February 21.

Friends of Guy and Jacqui are said to be expecting a wedding announcement in the near future, the News Of The World claims. Guy is currently working on post-production on the Sherlock Holmes sequel, and preparing to start work on an upcoming adventure film starring Inglourious Basterds star Michael Fassbender, Excalibur. A representative for Ritchie is yet to respond to MailOnline’s request for comment.

Okay, just a few things: I doubt Madonna is very happy about this, at all. I mean, after the divorce, Guy dated lots of ladies really fast – most of them younger, blonde, pretty, and wealthy in their own right. And now he’s knocked one of them up – Madge is gritting her teeth today. Now, as for the whole “girlfriend of a year” thing – that’s just not true. I was looking through our photo agencies, and Guy was photographed on dates with other women last April and May. So…basically, this chick got pregnant really quickly after they started dating. Interesting.

    Good for them. Who cares what Madonna thinks, she’s dating her share of boy toys so she has no right to say anything.

  2. Kaboom says:

    Just keep the baby safe from Madge who might want to use it in rejuvenation potions.

  3. missy says:

    Congrats to them if this is true. I doubt that Madonna would be upset. She’s added to her family since the divorce (Mercy), so why shouldn’t David?

  4. EdithP says:

    The girlfriend is really pretty — she looks a bit like Kate Middleton.

  5. Roma says:

    @Kaboom: Your comment just made me think of the awful, yet hilarious, South Park episode with Christopher Reeve and the fetuses. I so wouldn’t put that past Madonna either.

  6. courtney says:

    You mean Guy not David. yes the girlfriend is pretty and congrats to them if it’s true

  7. KJ says:

    This totally sounds like something Madonna would be upset about. She’s a massive, massive hypocrite.

    That said, HUGE upgrade, Guy. Well done.

  8. helen says:

    ‘I’ve known since I was very little that I want to be a mummy.’- ick. She’s 29 years old? Goo goo gaga.

  9. missy says:

    Oh yeah I meant to write Guy, not David.

  10. luvtheshoes says:

    All I want to know is when did Sammi from Jersey Shore start dating Guy Richie.

  11. Lindsay says:

    Dark blue corduroy suit. DUDE!

  12. Nancy says:

    “They have been keen to start a family”

    Yeeeeah Riiiight! They’ve been together less then a year and around that time Guy was still saying he still loved Madonna.

  13. Racheal says:

    Love a man who can wear a suit like that.
    @ Kaboom: That’s hilarious!

  14. jc126 says:

    Well, she might be a gold digger, but who cares what Madonna thinks? She runs around looking like a fool with 21 year old guys; I can’t imagine Guy Ritchie is thrilled about his sons seeing that.

  15. Tiffany says:

    Imagine how great it is to sleep with a girl like that after gristle? Good for him. She had her boy toys immediately after the breakup.

  16. Mari says:

    I don’t believe for one second they were exclusive, but, at least it seems he’s doing right by her. I’ve always been fond of him, so, good luck to them.

  17. Isabel says:

    Good for him. She’s quite pretty. Makes Madge look even more like the evil witch-lady from Hanzel and Gretel.

  18. flourpot says:

    @helen My daughter calls me mummy. I refer to myself as her mum or, if I’m in a good mood, her mummy. It’s an English thing.

  19. funny_girl says:

    This girl is a goldigger. Looks wise she is very pretty whereas Guy is only average looking at the best.. She’ll get 18yrs of maintenance out of this, prob “accidently” got pregnant. I don’t feel sorry for Guy Ritchie though-he took so much of Madonna’s money.. Madonna worked hard for that money down through the yrs so I pitied her having to give him so much in their settlement.

    I don’t get why people are dissing Madonna-sure she may be a tough cookie but she *has* to be in her industry or else she’d be eaten alive. Who cares if she’s too muscly? At least she puts the effort in, albeit goes a bit too far with it.

  20. Cha Cha Loca says:

    Wow, she’s very pretty. Major upgrade from Vadge. He and Vadge are divorced so who give a rats ass what she thinks. Vadge is living her life as an embarassing over the hill, depserate, way too young for her boy toy chasing skank so Guy should be able to do as he pleases. Surely his lifestyle is way less embarassing to thier children than hers.

    I smell a goldigger

    How on G-d’s green Earth, when you are having extensive renovations performed on your mansion and, one assumes, work is happening on a daily basis, does your crew fail to notice a whole pack of squatters who are not only LIVING in your home, BUT HAVE SET UP A SCHOOL there?

  23. Confuzzled says:

    He dresses like a geriatric

  24. Gina says:

    Well, let me say something – if it was not “Madonna” in Guy’s life.. would we know about him at all??
    Even he is now an upgraded director – he got part (or all) of his fame and subsequently good opportunities due to the fact he was married to the queen of pop (yes, u can even eat your own tools.. but it’s true!).. So, I don’t understand why people are so bitter concerning Madonna.
    And I am not even a huge M’s fan – not at all – but, I feel myself upset to read so many degrading things about her.. to compare her with a “witch” or put on discussion her right to date anyone she wants.. younger than her or not.. that’s her right!
    If it was an older man dating young chicks nobody would say a word.. and that’s revolting!
