Dennis Quaid, who played the dad in the remake of "The Parent Trap," will soon be the father of twins in real life.
The actor and his wife Kimberly are expecting two bundles of joy by the end of the year. According to published reports, the couple is using a surrogate mother, aka a gestational carrier.
This means that the twins are the couple's biological offspring, but carried by another woman.
Quaid, 53, married Kimberly nee Buffington, 35, on Independence Day 2004 in Montana. Quaid first met Buffington, a real estate agent, while performing with his band, The Sharks, in Austin, Texas in March 2003.
Quaid has been married twice before, first to P.J. Soles from 1978 to 1983 and then to Meg Ryan for 11 years beginning in 1991, with whom he has his son, Jack.
The actor's recent films include "The Day After Tomorrow," "In Good Company," "Flight of the Phoenix," "Yours, Mine and Ours" and "American Dreamz." He can be seen this fall in "Vantage Point" and is currently filming the sports drama "The Express."Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
