When Neil Jordan directed Colin Farrell and Alicja Bachleda in the romantic fantasy Ondine, little did he know his beautiful lead actors would take their love offscreen — and have a little one on the way! “It’s bizarre!” Neil told In Touch at the Greenhouse sponsored after-party to celebrate the film's premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. “When we were doing the movie, they were playing the parts. I think the romantic encounter happened after we finished.” Despite his initial shock, Colin’s close friend and director is thrilled that the couple is expecting. “I hope to be the godfather of their child! [Alicja] is a wonderful woman, and I've known Colin for years,” Neil said, adding that he congratulated the lovebirds upon learning the news. Colin, who confirmed his Polish girlfriend’s pregnancy last week, has a 6-year-old
son, James, with his ex Kim Bordenave.
