Gibson's publicist confirmed the news to X17online, which Mel first revealed on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" airing on Tuesday.

Just yesterday, Gibson cursed at photographers when asked about the pregnancy rumors.

"I guess I'm 'Octo-Mel,' Gibson joked. The film star already has seven children with his estranged wife, Robyn.

In an usually revealing interview, Gibson took responsibility for the failure of his 28-year marriage.

"When it's all said and done, I did a pretty good hatchet job on my marriage myself. I'm to blame if you're inclined to judge, put it here," Gibson said.

Grigorieva is believed to her second trimester of pregnancy. The baby is due in the fall.
