Okay, so we all know this already, but Mel Gibson's girlfriend is expecting, confirms his rep.
"He couldn't be happier," said a friend of the actor. "He loves being a father."
But Oksana Grigorieva's pregnancy wasn't the reason Mel and his wife officially split. "This has nothing to do with the divorce. Mel didn't even know Oksana was pregnant when they filed."
Mel actually opened up to Jay Leno last night about the end of his marriage to Robin Gibson.
"My wife and I, our marriage ended three years ago and we've been separated ever since then. 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."
So, what happened? "Look. When it's all said and done, I did a pretty good hatchet job on my marriage myself," Mel admitted. "I'm to blame. If you're inclined to judge, put it here."
As for Oksana's pregnancy, Mel confirmed, "This is true. We're gonna have a child."
Jay then joked, "So that will make 29? "
"Well, actually eight. I guess I'm Octo-Mel," quipped the actor.
That was actually kind of funny.
