Director Matthew Vaughn is terrified his supermodel wife Claudia Schiffer will be murdered by a ''freak'' fan
Claudia Schiffer's husband is terrified she will be murdered by a fan - like John Lennon.
Director Matthew Vaughn - who confronted a stalker in the couple's home in Suffolk, East England, in 2004 - has serious concerns for the safety of his supermodel spouse, who is currently pregnant with their third child.
He said: "We have had some freaks. I am not the famous one, but as a husband you get worried for your wife. With the John Lennon thing - now and again a celebrity gets 'done in', it's scary."
Former Beatle John died in 1980, after being shot by deranged fan Mark Chapman outside his apartment building in New York.
Speaking about the time he confronted the intruder, the 'Kick Ass' filmmaker admitted he was so stunned, he offered the man - Canadian Louis Brisette - a cup of tea.
Matthew added in an interview with The Sun newspaper: "There was one time when I walked into the kitchen and there was a stranger sitting at the table with a bag.
"My initial reaction was to tell him to get the f**k out. Then I thought he might have a gun and my wife and kids were upstairs asleep. So I ended up offering him a cup of tea.
"Then I rang the police as I put the kettle on. He was a freak."
Matthew and 39-year-old Claudia - who already have a son, Casper, seven, and daughter, Clementine, five - are looking forward to welcoming their new arrival but the 39-year-old director expects three children will be much more difficult to cope with than two.
He said: "Suddenly it will be one goes left, one goes right, and one goes down the middle. I won't be able to catch all three. I'm looking forward to it though."
