It's a Boy for Jamie Pressley

My Name Is Earl star Jamie Pressly announced that she is expecting a baby boy on Wednesday night's taping of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Pressly is four months pregnant, and the proud papa is her fiance, deejay Eric Cubiche. Pressly describes hearing about the sex of the baby from her doctor: "She looked at the picture and said, 'If that's not a boy that's a third leg.' Of course, Eric says its because he's Cuban."

Pressly and Cubiche got engaged last month, after Pressly denied rumors that she was pregnant. "I was only a month pregnant so I lied, which is a woman's right," she says. The couple have already selected a name: Dezi James. The "Dezi" comes from a running I Love Lucy joke between the couple, and James is Pressly's father's name.

The happy couple, who have been dating for a year and a half, are in no rush to get married. "I do want to be a princess for a day," says Pressly, "but it's not necessary to do that before you have kids. A lot of women do it later."
