Anne Heche Is Expecting a Boy

Anne Heche, who announced that she was pregnant in December, will be having a baby boy with her boyfriend, James Tupper, her rep confirms to Us Magazine.

This will be the first child for the couple, who met on the set of doomed series Men In Trees in 2006, when Heche, 39, was still married to ex-husband Coley Laffoon. Heche, who dated comedienne/talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres from 1997 to 2000, has a six-year-old son, Homer, with Laffoon.

Canadian-born Tupper, 43, is currently filming the horror/thriller flick The Disembodied.

Heche, who filed for divorce from Laffoon in 2007, revealed in June 2008 that she was nearly broke from lack of work, and would no longer be able to pay nearly $15,000 in monthly alimony and child support to Laffoon and Homer.

The actress will next be seen in the comedy Spread, co-starring Ashton Kutcher.

Good thing she picked up the work; with another mouth to feed on the way, she’s going to need the cash.
