Charles Bronson AKA "the most violent prisoner in Britain" has revealed he wants Tom Hardy to father his child while he serves a life sentence.
The notorious prisoner must be a fan of Hardy, who played him in 2008 biopic Bronson, because now he wants the actor to be a "surrogate daddy".
Bronson is determined to have a daughter called Sophie with his fiancee Paula Williamson, but as his current sentence doesn't allow him to have conjugal visits, he has had to "come up with something special".
According to The Independent, Bronson wrote in a recent letter: "The powers that be seem to think I can't have a baby with my Paula. But you know… I always come up with something special. Maybe a surrogate daddy. If Tom says yes, I think it's got to be him."
"Get a meet with Tom. See what he thinks. I think Paula would go with that choice. I'll be discussing it with my Paula. It will be nice for her to have a baby to keep her happy while she awaits my freedom."
In case Hardy doesn't take up the offer, he has also lined an alternative as Bronson said : "I know Danny Dyer would be up for it."
Williamson and Bronson began exchanging letters in 2013 after she made initial contact having read his book. Bronson then proposed in February, with the hope of marrying in 2020.
The 64 year old prisoner, who now goes by the surname of Salvador, is currently serving a life sentence at Wakefield jail in North Yorkshire.
He has been in and out of prison since 1974 for a number of crimes including GBH, armed robbery and even threatening to eat a fellow inmate.
