LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Yeah Baby! "Austin Powers" star Mike Myers is going to be a first time dad, his publicist said on Friday.

The 47-year old funnyman and his wife, Kelly Tisdale, are expecting their first child later this year.

"We are overjoyed," the couple said in a joint statement.

The duo, who began dating in 2006, got married last fall. Myers was previously married to Robin Ruzan for 12 years. The couple did not have any children together.

The Canadian funnyman is a veteran of the TV sketch comedy series "Saturday Night Live" and starred in the movies "Wayne's World," "Austin Powers" and "Shrek".
