Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller think the chances are good that they will welcome a son.

Charlie’s three other children (Sam, 4, and Lola, 3, with ex-wife Denise Richards, and Cassandra, 23, with ex-girlfriend Paula Profitt) are all girls. And unless, as he said, he’s “batting 100 percent,” the couple thinks they’ll be decorating the nursery with baseballs rather than Barbie dolls.

“Odds are it’s a boy, but we’ll be happy with either sex,” Brooke told People magazine at the opening of Yellowtail Sushi Restaurant in Las Vegas.

Charlie shared his wife’s view, adding, “We’re just hoping for a healthy baby, but there’s a chance (for a boy) – odds are positive.”

Rumors had been swirling before the Sheens confirmed their pregnancy earlier in the week, and Brooke and Charlie were disappointed in the way the news broke. “It would have been nice to do it on our terms,” said Charlie. Added Brooke: “We were hoping to be a little further along before news got out.”

Earlier in the evening, the expectant couple – along with Sam and Lola – joined Palms Casino Resort owner George Maloof and KISS singer-guitarist Paul Stanley at N9NE steakhouse to celebrate Charlie’s 43rd birthday (which is on September 3rd) a few days early.

Lara Logan Expecting Her First Child

Stunning 60 Minutes reporter Lara Logan, 37, is expecting her first child in January 2009. Lara, whose pregnancy was unplanned, said that she is “looking forward to being a mom.” Lara said that she lost one of her fallopian tubes during an ectopic pregnancy years ago and believed at her age it was highly unlikely that she could get pregnant.

The father is Joe Burkett, a civilian contractor that she met while in Baghdad. Joe Burkett is currently embroiled in a nasty divorce from his wife, with whom he has a 3-year-old daughter, Ashley.

Lara was born in Durban, South Africa. She has been going through a divorce from her husband of nine years, Jason Siemon, a former European-league basketball player.

Jeff Gordon On His Wife: "She's The Greatest Mom On The Planet"

Jeff Gordon opened up about how lucky he is to be married to wife Ingrid.

“She’s an amazing wife and mother,” Jeff, 37, told People magazine at Wednesday’s Pepsi 500 Running Wide Open party in Hollywood. “You’ve got to have a wife that’s very understanding. I’m lucky to have that.”

He explained, “It’s because she wakes up everyday at 7 a.m. and does everything that she possibly can for her little girl – our little girl – and for me.”

Jeff’s model/actress wife, Ingrid Vandebosch, gave birth to their daughter, Ella Sofia Gordon, in June 2007.

Jeff shared that the best part of fatherhood is “waking up every morning and seeing her look in your face. The love, there’s nothing like it.”

As for their home life, Jeff said that Ingrid picks up the slack when he’s busy with work. “We try to travel together. I do everything I can to get home as often as I can. She’s the greatest mom on the planet.”

Asked if they want more kids, Jeff said, “Maybe!” And even though he’s had a year of practice being a dad, he’s still open to words of wisdom on the subject. “Everybody I know that becomes a parent reads every book they possibly can,” he said. “Any advice I get, I’m going to take it.”
