Minnie Driver announced her pregnancy on The Tonight Show – and now she's chatting with Ellen DeGeneres about the biggest dilemma facing her right now: what to name her baby.
"I have a pretty silly name," the Riches star says on an episode of the Ellen DeGeneres Show scheduled to air Monday. "Driver is kind of a hard name to put with a first name, particularly boys names … My friend sent me an email saying I should call the baby Duncan Driver. Then I can call it Dunk Driver, Pile Driver, Rally Driver."
Joked DeGeneres: "So you’re hoping for a girl, you're saying."

Minnie Driver is expecting her first child, joking her morning sickness is so bad it actually occurs "morning, noon and night."
Driver, 38, revealed her pregnancy Thursday on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno after Leno quipped that it looked like she had gained weight from too many trips to the Hometown Buffet.
"Are you calling me fat? You've noticed my tummy, haven't you?" Driver asked.
"Are you pregnant?" Leno asked.
"Yes, I am," the actress said.

With the Oscars only days away (not that we're counting or anything), certainly all the nominees are busy with dress fittings, makeovers, last-minute workouts, interviews and the like. Not Kate Winslet – our spies spotted the down-to-earth star (a Best Actress nominee for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) lunching with her husband, director Sam Mendes, and her two tots on the patio at the Hotel Bel Air. Like any mom, Winslet (dressed in a green T-shirt, baggy pants and UGGs) reprimanded her 4-year-old daughter, Mia, for ordering fries and not eating them – and we're told the slimmed-down actress did help herself to a few. When a nearby table of ladies wished her luck at the Academy Awards, our spies say Winslet stopped to visit with them, and said she hadn't yet had time to think about it much, "what with kids and all." She did admit that there "was a lot of pressure, if you stopped to think about it," but then was off to show her children the swans.

"They were all over each other, very in love," says a spy. Sitting at a nearby table was Joey star Drea De Matteo, with musician boyfriend Shooter Jennings and a group of tattooed, pierced friends.
