Irish actor Colin Farrell has said he wants the mother of his child to move to Dublin and have their baby in Ireland.

Farrell, known for his bad-boy reputation, recently announced that US model Kim Bordenave is pregnant with his child.

Reports say Farrell wants his family here to be involved in the birth and upbringing of the child.

The Dubliner stars in 'The Recruit', which hits cinemas across Ireland today.

He will celebrate his 27th birthday next Monday, 31 March.
