SHEFFIELD-born nightclub legend Peter Stringfellow has announced he’s to be a dad again at the age of 72.

Stringfellow, who has two children in their 40s, said he and his former ballet dancer wife Bella, 31, are expecting their first child together.

The club impresario, who has been in showbiz for over 50 years, revealed the news at a party in London.

Stringfellow, who has been married twice before, dated Bella for five years before they married in Barbados on Valentine’s Day, 2009. She was a dancer at the English National Ballet before quitting to work at his London lapdance club.

In a sign he has no intention of slowing down, last month he threatened to stand against Nick Clegg as MP for Sheffield Hallam at the 2015 general election. “I don’t want to be Hugh Hefner, so a bit later on in life I like the idea of going into politics,” he said.
