British boxing champion Ricky Hatton is set to be a dad again, just months after completing a stint in rehab.

The sports star hit headlines in September when photographs of him allegedly snorting cocaine in a hotel room were published in a U.K. tabloid.

The former WBA Welterweight Champion admitted he had been "dabbling" with drugs and subsequently checked into London's The Priory clinic, before leaving a month later.

Now, Hatton and his fiancee Jennifer Dooley are focusing on happier news after learning they will become parents this summer (11).

Hatton tells Britain's The Sun, "I'm looking forward to becoming a father again - and I'm excited that Jenny's going to become a mother. I think she'll make a great mum.

"She has been my rock and has stood through me (sic) during some difficult times."

The star is already dad to 10-year-old Campbell from a previous relationship.
