Leonardo Dicaprio is set to become a father according to reports which claim that his girlfriend Bar Rafaeli is pregnant.

The claim follows rumours that the US actor is planning to head up the aisle with the Israeli model this summer.

Now 'friends' of Rafaeli have told the Daily Mirror that the couple are expecting their first child in the autumn, with the pair said to be "delighted" at the prospect.

An unnamed source told the paper that Titanic star DiCaprio couldn't wait to become a father, particularly after fellow Hollywood chum Tobey Maguire entered the world of parenthood last year.

"He dotes on Tobey's little girl Ruby and has been asking him all about what it's like being a dad," the source told the Mirror.

Meanwhile, it has been claimed that DiCaprio's film career is also on the up, with the actor reportedly in early talks to star in a new movie about an ex-journalist turned CIA agent sent to the Middle East to help hunt down an al-Qaida leader planning attacks against the US.

Carrying the report earlier this week, US entertainment magazine Variety said that director Ridley Scott would oversee the adaptation of David Ignatius' thriller novel, Body of Lies.
