Minnie Driver announced the world that she is expecting and not fat!

Minnie's having a babyJoining Lisa Marie Presley in the battle of the tabloids accusations of weight gain, Driver was on the Jay Leno show last night and decided to set the record straight.

"Are you calling me fat? You've noticed my tummy, haven't you?" Driver asked of "The Tonight Show" host. 

"Are you pregnant?" Leno returned.

"Yes, I am," the actress said.

And there it was, the announcement came in the same spot that Arnold Schwarzenegger announced he was running for Governor and Fred Thompson announced he was running for President.

Guess Jay's coach is the place to make big announcements lately.

Driver went on to say that although pregnancy is pure bliss, she could do without the non-stop nausea.

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