LONDON, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Eric Clapton is to be a dad again, with wife Melia McEnery expecting the 59-year-old guitar icon's fifth child in January, it was reported Thursday.

Clapton announced news of the pregnancy Wednesday while at Buckingham Palace where he accepted a Commander of the British Empire award from Princess Anne, Britain's Mirror said.

"My wife is pregnant and she is expecting in January," Clapton said of his 28-year-old wife.

The couple has two other children, Julie Rose, 3, and 18-month-old Ella Mae.

Clapton also has a daughter, Ruth, 19, with previous girlfriend Yvonne Kelly.

The entertainer's son, Conor, died in 1991, when the 4-year-old fell from Clapton's New York apartment window.

Clapton wrote his hit song "Tears In Heaven" as a tribute to Conor.
