Appearing on The Tonight Show on Tuesday, Jenna Fischer was asked by host Jay Leno if her parents were thrilled over their first grandchild.
"This is the second grandchild," The Office star corrected, "but first grandson."
When Leno jumped on the word grandson, Fischer confirmed that she and husband Lee Kirk are expecting a boy.
"This is the exclusive, Jay," says Fischer, 37, who appears in the upcoming film A Little Help. "When I went to my movie premiere the other day a reporter asked me if I knew what I was having, and I said I do, but I’m not sharing that yet because I’m [going to] have Jay be the first to know.”

Before Lindsay Lohan heads to an L.A.-area morgue for her community service, the troubled starlet stopped by the Tonight Show for a surprise chat with Jay Leno.
In an interview scheduled to air Tuesday night, Lohan, 24, clad in a silky black pantsuit, said her punishment felt "shocking" and revealed she feels "kind of numb."
"I'm not a kid anymore," she said. "I'm 24. I've made a lot of mistakes. I recognize that, but I'm in the clear now and I feel that as long as I stay focused, I will achieve what I want to achieve."

Joy Behar may have been the guest on Tuesday's The Tonight Show, but host Jay Leno was the one who really dished.
In a short conversation backstage, Leno told Behar for her HLN show that he and Conan O'Brien were both "treated terribly" in January's shake-up at NBC, which eventually restored him as host of The Tonight Show.
"Conan got screwed. I got screwed," Leno said. "This is TV. The reason show business pays a lot of money is so when you get screwed you've got something left over."
But Leno expects O'Brien, who recently announced a 30-city North American tour, to return to television eventually.

Loaded with one-liners, President Barack Obama visited the Tonight Show on Thursday night and likened his new job to competing on a reality show: "I do think in Washington, it's a little bit like American Idol. But everybody is Simon Cowell."
The appearance by the First Guest provided Jay Leno with what he called "the most exciting show of my life" – and fodder for jokes and banter. "A lot of people were surprised that the president came to NBC," said Leno. "You'd think by this time, he'd be tired of big companies on the brink of disaster."
Obama, dressed in a dark blue suit with a red tie flipped up the tails of jacket when he sat down, then crossed his legs and talked about the perks of the office, starting with his new mode of transportation.
"How cool is it to fly in Air Force One?" asked Leno.

It's official! After he leaves The Tonight Show, Jay Leno will keep America laughing – an hour and half earlier.
On Tuesday, NBC announced that Leno will stay with the network and host a new primetime comedy/talk show five nights a week starting in the fall of 2009. The one-hour show will air at 10 p.m., making it the first program of its kind to be featured on primetime on a broadcast network.
"Just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in," Leno jokingly told reporters at a press conference in Los Angeles Tuesday.

It took two presidential candidates to help the two late-night kings of television return to the air Tuesday: Republican hopeful Mike Huckabee, with Jay Leno, and Democratic contender Hillary Clinton, with David Letterman.
"Dave has been off the air for eight long weeks," Senator Clinton, appearing via satellite from the campaign in Iowa, said at the outset of CBS's Late Show with David Letterman. "Tonight, he's back. Oh, well. All good things come to an end."

Jay Leno is out, and Conan O'Brien is in – but not until 2009.

Jay Leno isn't headed anywhere soon -- and certainly not to make a little extra cash.
