Ever since Tom Hardy visited notorious prisoner Charles Bronson during the filming of Bronson, the two have been good friends.
And now the infamous prison brute has revealed he wants Hardy to father his child.
Of course being a notoriously violent prisoner stuck in jail denied conjugal visits, he can hardly impregnate his soon-to-be-wife Paula Williamson so wants Hardy to do so instead.
According to The Mirror, Bronson revealed all in a letter to his friend.
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.
I wonder what Paula thinks about that!

Hardy played the infamous jailbird in the 2008 film Bronson with the man himself even stating his belief the Inception and Dark Knight Rises star was the only person who could play him.
If Tom doesn’t fancy the opportunity to donate sperm, Bronson of course has a back-up plan in the shape of none other than Danny Dyer.
I know Danny Dyer would be up for it.
I’m sure Danny will be thrilled.
Bronson also revealed in the letter his hopes to either have twins or triplets.
His fiancee Paula has starred in soaps Coronation Street, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks and began exchanging letters with Bronson in 2013 before accepting his proposal over the phone six months ago.
He hopes to wed Paula before a parole hearing on November 7.

First jailed in 1974 for armed robbery, Luton-born Bronson was freed in 1988 but put behind bars two months later when he was involved in another robbey.
He was later jailed for life in 1999 after kidnapping an art teacher during a 40-hour long siege.
