South African model Lindi Hingston has reportedly claimed Pete Doherty is the father of her new baby.

Hingston apparently told the South African Sunday Times that the Babyshambles man was "over the moon" to have become a father again to tot Aisling. Mum and baby have both been pictured by the Daily Mail, which ran the quotes from the South African newspaper.

"I wrote to him in prison. He wrote back saying he was over the moon," the newspaper quotes the 34-year-old as saying. The article went on to claim that Doherty has not yet met the baby as he's currently on bail for cocaine possession and is unable to travel to South Africa.

Doherty has already fathered a son with Kill City singer Lisa Moorish - Astile was born in 2003.

The former Libertines man recently returned to live action in London, playing two solo acoustic shows at Brixton Jamm last month and a gig at Nambucca last Sunday (February 5).

The shows saw him play a number of new songs, including 'Siberian Fur', a collaboration with long-time cohort Wolfman and 'Bird Cage', which featured the vocals of singer Suzi Martin.
