“Melanie is very American and doesn’t want to move to London, even though they’ve been seeing each other regularly over a long period of time now, " The Sun's source said.

“Mick likes the arrangement they have and doesn’t want to be in another formal relationship.

“But the most important thing is how much he loves his children and he has great relations with them. He will support and love this child."
