Jay Leno wasn’t kidding. He spilled the beans during his monologue on Thursday’s ”Tonight Show” that Matt LeBlanc was going to be a dad, although LeBlanc wasn’t even a guest that night. But it’s true, the ”Friends” star’s rep told E! Online on Monday: LeBlanc and wife Melissa McKnight are expecting a little Joey or Josephine.

The baby is due in mid-March, just before LeBlanc wraps the final season of ”Friends” and begins preparing for his ”Joey” spinoff. It’ll be the first child for LeBlanc and the third for McKnight, who married him in May. Meanwhile, LeBlanc has expectations for another little prize; he may win an Emmy at the awards ceremony later this month.
