Troubled Mel Gibson to Be Grandfather Again

March 15, 2011 (5:03 am) GMT
The 'Braveheart' actor, who was sentenced to three years probation after hitting his ex-girlfriend, has received the good news one day after pleading no contest to battery charges.

Actor became a grandfather for the third time on Saturday, March 12, just one day after pleading no contest to misdemeanor battery charges. Gibson's daughter, Hannah, and her husband, blues singer Kenny Wayne Shepherd, welcomed a baby boy over the weekend, reports TMZ. The couple already has two children.

The good news follows Gibson's court appearance on Friday, March 11, when the actor-director was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to undergo a year of counseling after pleading no contest to a charge of simple misdemeanor battery.

The embattled star's latest legal woe stems from accusations filed against him by his ex-girlfriend , who alleged Gibson attacked her during a heated argument in January 2010. The former couple has been locked in a war of words over custody of their baby daughter Lucia since splitting in 2010.
