Chad Lowe and Girlfriend Expecting First Baby

Chad Lowe is going to be a dad! You may remember him as the former Mr. Hilary Swank, but that relationship didn’t end so well. Back in 2006, the two of them broke up, and Hilary Swank was spotted with her agent John Campisi. It seemed at the time like she had moved on just a little too quickly, if you catch our drift.

But Chad now has something to smile about, since he and his girlfriend Kim Painter are expecting! His rep confirmed the news to People Magazine today, saying, “Kim Painter and Chad Lowe announced today that they are expecting a baby in early summer. The couple is overjoyed and could not be happier.”

Chad and Kim started seeing each other in 2007. Entertainment Tonight reports that the baby is a girl, and that she’ll be giving birth in May.

We’re so glad Chad has found happiness again. It was just last year that he told People his relationship with Painter and his gig on 24 helped him get through "a very dark period" after his split from Swank. Congrats to the happy couple!
