The Artist‘s Jean Dujardin is going to be a dad — again!

The French Oscar winner, 43, is expecting his first child with Nathalie Péchalat this winter, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

Dujardin is already dad to two sons, Simon, 13, and Jules, 14, from a previous marriage.

The actor and the former French Olympic ice dancer, 31, have been together for over a year. He split from previous partner Alexandra Lamy in 2013 after four years of marriage.

Dujardin has recently appeared in Wolf of Wall Street and Monuments Men. Since Péchalat’s retirement from skating, she has become a commentator for Eurosports Television.

Before that, the debonair actor proved he can nail non-verbal communication when he brought home the Oscar in 2012 for his role in the silent film The Artist.

Those skills will undoubtedly prove useful once the baby is born.
