It's official! Mel Gibson and his girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva are expecting!
Rumors had been circling for the past few weeks that Oksana was with child, but Mel has just confirmed the news himself. He appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and spilled the beans on the stork news.
"I guess I’m 'Octo-Mel,'" said Mel, who already has seven kids with his soon to be ex-wife of 28 years, Robyn.
"My wife and I, our marriage ended three years ago and we’ve been separated ever since then," Gibson tells Leno. "These things happen. It's unfortunate, it's sad, but you know she is an admirable woman -- we still got kids together, we're friends."
When asked by Leno if he is planning on marrying Oksana, Mel said, "Why would you get married twice?"
Mel's rep also confirmed the news to People, saying, "He couldn't be happier. He loves being a father." Grigorieva is already in her second trimester and is due late this fall.
A source close to Mel says the pregnancy has nothing to do with his divorce from wife of 28 years Robyn. Says the source, "This has nothing to do with the divorce. Mel didn't even know Oksana was pregnant when they filed."
We can't believe Mel is going to be a dad again, and at his age! He's 53 years old, and already has seven children! Sources close to him say his children get along with Gregorieva's son Alexander. We wish them lots of luck!
