Minnie Driver's doctor told her the gender of her unborn baby, even though she didn't want to know.
The 'Good Will Hunting' actress - who is expecting her first child but has so far refused to reveal the identity of the father - revealed her doctor accidentally let slip the sex of the baby during a recent medical exam but luckily she didn't hear him.
She said: "I don't know whether he said 'he' or 'she'. I was too busy concentrating on what he was saying about my cervix!"
However, one of her friends who accompanied her to the examination did hear and is now jokingly threatening to tell Minnie unless she showers him with expensive gifts.
The 38-year-old actress also says she can't wait to give birth, admitting the pregnancy is starting to take its toll.
She added to US TV talk show host Jimmy Kimmel: "It feels like I've been pregnant for nine years. The baby is due in six or seven weeks – but maybe sooner.
"I've got strollers coming out my bum... like, 24 strollers. Does anyone want one?"
Meanwhile, Minnie has spoken about her plans for giving birth and the names she has considered for her baby.
She said: "My mom and Aunt Serena will be with me, as will my best friends, a midwife and a yoga teacher. And I'll be the wailing monster at the centre.
"Because of work I'll need a nanny, but I intend to be a hands-on mommy. I have two houses, so I've readied two rooms. "Being traditional, if it's a boy I'll name him Thomas. If it's a girl, Isabel."
