The Widow Cobain and the godfather of Radio Norwich’s graveyard shift have engaged in carnal relations…and there’s a child on the way writes the Guardian’s Sophie Kirkham : (link courtesy Brian Turner)

In one of the most unpredictable showbusiness pairings the rock singer Courtney Love has claimed she is expecting a child with Steve Coogan, the alter ego of nerdy chatshow host Alan Partridge.

(“which one of you lucky, lucky ladies am I going to be making love to?”)

She and Coogan met while they were staying in the same hotel in Los Angeles and Love is now reported to be embarrassed at the affair, which lasted just two weeks. “What does it make me look like that I have slept with Alan Partridge?” she allegedly told a friend. “Given the A-grade stars I’ve dated it’s embarrassing. I mean … Alan Partridge!”

Indeed, what will Ms. Love say to the authorities when her child is born with a pronounced Kenco dependency?

CSTB offers congratulations to the happy couple, in particular to Coogan, one of the comic geniuses of the modern age. In his short time in Hollywood, Steve has learned that making the scene with Ben Stiller can only do so much for one’s career — if you really want to catapult yourself into the American consciousness, there is no faster way of doing so than impregnating Courtney Love.
