Good news for Gary Busey

oscar nominee Gary Busey is better known of late for his red-carpet scraps and stint on ‘Celebrity Rehab’, but finally the actor has some good news – he’s become a dad for the third time at the ripe old age of 65.

Gary – who was garnered a nod from the Academy in 1978 for his lead role in ‘The Buddy Holly story’ – welcomed his son Luke Sampson earlier this week with girlfriend Steffanie Sampson. “This feels like a dream,” says Gary. “We feel so blessed and are overwhelmed with happiness at Luke’s arrival.”

Gary, who also starred with the late Patrick Swayze in ‘Point Break’, is already dad to son Jake (38) and daughter Alectra (17) from a previous relationship. He is next due to be seen in the 2010 comedy ‘Grown Ups’ with funnyman Adam Sandler.
