Mel Gibson has confirmed that he and his girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva are expecting their first child, a month after the couple went public with their relationship.
The 'Lethal Weapon' star announced the pregnancy on popular US chat show 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno', declaring, "This is true", after Leno quizzed him about the baby rumours.
Russian musician Grigorieva, who met Gibson in 2008 after she was signed to his Icon Records label, is in her second trimester and due later in the year, according to People Magazine.
The 53-year-old Oscar winner already has seven children with estranged wife Robyn. Grigorieva also has a teenage son to James Bond actor Timothy Dalton.
