It’s a boy for Jenna Fischer

A six-months pregnant Fischer.

She might six-months pregnant, but Jenna Fischer is still super quick
on her feet, as demonstrated Tuesday night on “The Tonight Show.”
In a quip-filled gab session with host Jay Leno, Fischer disclosed that
she and husband, screenwriter Lee Kirk, are having a boy in September.
“Me and my husband, we’re due in the fall, September,” she said. “We’re
in what they call the home stretch. This is the second grandchild, but
it’s the first grandson…This is the exclusive, Jay!” she said.
She admitted that this, her first pregnancy, was “easy.” She told Leno,
“I haven’t had any morning sickness or anything like that. I’ve been
exercising, which I think has helped, I don’t have any back pain, a lot
of women complain about that.”
But Fischer has been taking part in the past time of every pregnant
woman: Eating. “You don’t really know hunger until you’re pregnant,”
she said, going on to explain the one question you should never ask a
pregnant lady. “Don’t say, ‘What do you want to eat?’ In the time it
took you to say that, it’s too long. I should be eating already…don’t
offer me a salad with vinaigrette dressing. I want spaghetti bolognese.
I want it immediately, or I’m gonna eat your foot.”
Fischer also disclosed that her pregnancy will be written into the new
season of “The Office” — her second on-screen pregnancy for Pam, her
character.
