  • Minnie Driver confirms pregnancy

    It’s been rumoured for a while, but Minnie Driver has finally confirmed she’s expecting her first child – on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

    The 38-year-old actress admitted she was pregnant after Leno quipped it looked like she had put on weight from too many trips to the Hometown Buffet.

    ‘Are you calling me fat? You’ve noticed my tummy, haven’t you?’ Driver asked.

    Leno responded: ‘Are you pregnant?’ To which Minnie replied: ‘Yes, I am.’

    The actress, who kept the father’s identity under wraps, went on to say she ‘loves being pregnant more than anything’, but acknowledged having trouble with sickness.

    ‘I don’t know why they call it morning sickness,’ she said. ‘I am sick morning, noon and night, but it’s a fair trade-off.’

    Minnie previously dated her Good Will Hunting co-star Matt Damon in the late Nineties, then was engaged to Josh Brolin in 2001. She was most recently linked to illusionist Criss Angel.
