It's a boy! Jenna Fischer tells Leno about the one on the way

Dan Steinberg / AP / Today
Actress Jenna Fischer and her husband Lee Kirk will soon welcome a son.

Jenna Fischer will soon welcome a baby boy! “The Office” star shared the news on Tuesday night’s “Tonight Show With Jay Leno.”

“This is an exclusive, Jay,” Fischer explained after making mention of a boy. “When I went to my movie (‘A Little Help’) premiere the other day, a reporter asked me if I knew what I was having. I said that ‘I do, but I’m not sharing that yet because I’m going to have Jay be the first to know.’”

A flattered Leno smiled and shot back, “Like a lot of girls, you were saving yourself for Jay.”

The actress saved something else for the late-night host, too — the month the baby is due.

“September — we’re in what they call the home stretch.”

Also in the home stretch? Fischer’s on-screen alter ego, Pam. As reported last week, Fischer’s pregnancy will be worked into the story when “The Office” returns in the fall.
