Cocaine-bust actor Charlie Heaton has a secret love child.
The “Stranger Things” star, 23, has a 3-year-old son with ex-girlfriend Akiko Matsuura.
The couple had the boy in May 2014 while they were in rock band Comanechi.
Filming the drama in Los Angeles means Heaton rarely sees his son, who lives with his mom, also 23, in London.
A source said: “Charlie became a dad when he was just 20. He met Akiko when he was just a teen and fell head over heels in love. They’re no longer together but they have an amicable relationship for the boy’s sake. Right now Charlie’s career is his priority but he hopes to see more of his son once filming commitments calm down.”
On Saturday, the Sun revealed the star missed a “Stranger Things 2” launch party in the US due to the cocaine bust.
He was stopped at Los Angeles airport, where officials found white powder on his personal items. Charlie was sent back to the UK.
The series, now streaming on Netflix UK, has Heaton playing Jonathan Byers, brother of abducted Will.
Matsuura, from Japan, is now in the band The Big Pink. Since their split, Heaton has been linked to co-star Natalia Dyer and actress Anna Friel.
