R&B singer Eric Benet is set to become a father again - his wife is expecting their first child.

Halle Berry's ex-husband wed longtime partner Manuela Testolini - who was previously married to Prince - in July, and now they are preparing to become parents.

Benet took to his Twitter.com page to tell his fans the news and uploaded a photo of Testolini cradling her baby bump alongside the caption, "We're expanding."

The singer is already dad to daughter India, from a previous relationship.
