Jean Dujardin 'welcomes daughter'

French actor Jean Dujardin has become a father for the third time, according to a U.S. report.

The Oscar winner, 43, and French Olympic ice dancer Nathalie Pechalat welcomed a daughter named Jeanne on Saturday (05Dec15), a source confirms to People.com. The couple has been together for more than a year.

The Artist star also has two sons, Jules, 14, and Simon, 13, from his first marriage to Gaelle Dujardin. He was also married to actress Alexandra Lamy between 2009 and 2013.

News of the latest edition to Jean's family broke in July (15).

Awards favourite The Artist launched Jean's career to a global platform, and in 2012 he took home the Golden Globe and the BAFTA, as well as the coveted Academy Award.

Jean has previously joked about winning the illustrious trophy.

"I've always had a wry take on things that has saved me from many things in my life," he laughed to the Eurostar's Metropolitan magazine. "When I received the Oscar I enjoyed it, but at the same time I couldn't help thinking there was something completely absurd about my being there, with my c**p English and this statue in my hand.

"It's absurd and I think it needs to stay that way... I now have an Oscar on my shelf. It's very handsome but it's not like I'm cleaning it every day."
