Los Angeles - Tom Hardy is to be a father for the second time.

The Legend actor - who already has a seven-year-old son, Louis, with ex-girlfriend Rachael Speed - was joined on the red carpet for the UK premiere of his new movie in London this evening by wife Charlotte Riley, whose growing baby bump could be seen in a fitted black dress.

Tom - who married the 33-year-old actress in July 2014 - recently said he takes "great pride" in being a father.

He told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "Being a father has given me the kind of purpose that makes you think more carefully about how you live your life. I made a lot of mistakes and I put my mum and dad through a lot because they were so worried about me.

"I take great pride in being a father and make sure I'm there for him and helping him as he makes his way in the world."

And the 37-year-old star believes becoming a parent when he did made him a lot less selfish and reassess his priorities.

He said: "It's the best thing I could have wished for. I was very self-indulgent for a long time and I was only thinking about my own stupid stuff and myself.

"Having a child lifts you out of that selfish behaviour. When you're faced with that kind of responsibility, it forces you to be a better man and live a healthy life. I have a boy I have to look after and that's more important than any small, petty concerns I might be worried about. Family is the biggest thing there is."
