Veteran actor Malcolm McDowell is going to be a dad for the fifth time — and he’s in a bit of a tizzy about it, he admitted to OK!

The Clockwork Orange star, 65, and his wife Kelley are expecting their third little boy and he also has a grown son and daughter from his marriage to second wife, Mary Steenburgen.

Malcolm — whose character Mr. Linderman appeared to have been killed off in the first year of the NBC show Heroes but is back this season — confided, “I’m a very active father of two — soon to be three — boys. They should be my grandchildren, but they’re my children, so go figure. It’s a very loud household!

“I always say here comes another stranger moving into our house, taking it over and everything is going to circulate around the new baby, of course, as it should. And we don’t know what the personality is [yet]; we don’t know what he looks like. We DO know it’s a him!” Malcolm said.

When OK! caught up with Malcolm and Kelley at the NBC premiere party for Heroes on Sunday night, they said they have selected a name for their boy, due in January, but, “We’re not telling because that’s bad luck,” he said.

Kelley told OK! Malcolm is a great dad to their younger boys Beckett, 4, and Finn, 18 months: “He’s a jokester. He takes them golfing every day. They’re so into it.”

Malcolm said that Finn sits in Kelley’s arms in the golf cart but when they get to the green “he comes tottering out and starts swiping the ball, missing it most of the time.”

Soon, the movie icon will have another boy out to play with on the course!
