"The Office" star Jenna Fischer revealed Monday on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" she is expecting a boy.

"This is the second grandchild, but it's the first grandson," she said.

The actress explained to Leno she'd been asked recently at a red carpet premiere whether the baby, who is due in late September, was a boy or a girl. She said she refused to answer at the time, allegedly because she wanted to tell Leno first.

This is the first child for Fischer, 37, and her husband of one year, writer Lee Kirk.

Fischer, whose movie "A Little Help" opens Friday, goes on to tell Leno her pregnancy has been easy so far.

"I haven't had any morning sickness, I've been exercising which I think has helped because I don't have any back pain... but you don't know hunger until you're pregnant," she said.

"Don't offer me a salad with vinaigrette dressing. I want spaghetti bolognese. I want it immediately. Or I'm going to eat your foot.

"That's kind of how it goes."
