We reported it earlier, but now Mel Gibson has officially confirmed that girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, is pregnant.
Mel, 53, confirmed the news during a taping of NBC’s The Tonight Show With Jay Leno that is set to air tonight.
“I guess I’m ‘Octo-Mel,'” said Mel, who already has seven kids with his wife of 28 years, Robyn.
Robyn filed for divorce six weeks ago amidst speculation that Oksana, a singer on Mel’s record label, was expecting a child.
“My wife and I, our marriage ended three years ago and we’ve been separated ever since then,” Mel told Jay 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.
“Look,” Mel continued. “When it’s all said and done, I did a pretty good hatchet job on my marriage myself. I’m to blame. If you’re inclined to judge, put it here.”
Mel also claims that his separation from Robyn had nothing to do with Oksana, whom he didn’t meet until 2008.
When asked by Jay Leno if they would wed, Mel said: “Why would you get married twice?”
According to reports, Oksana, 38, is in her second trimester and due this fall.
