Kristen Bell has managed to keep as quiet about her soon-to-be-born baby's gender as Dan Humphrey was about the fact that he was Gossip Girl. But has she just slipped up?

The pregnant 32-year-old House of Lies star appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on January 24 and was talking about how her fiance, Dax Shepard, plans to spend time with the little one.

Dax is looking forward to "all the off-roading he'll have in this tiny partner," Kristen told Ellen. 

Oops! Ellen quickly asks if this is a hint that Kristen and Dax are expecting a boy.

"Maybe?" was Kristen's coy response. But then she quickly fired back with, "Do you have to be a boy to off-road? Absolutely not! I think [Dax]'s going to force [the baby], even if it's a sloth, to off-road."

Meanwhile, Kristen is a bit apprehensive about the actual experience of going into labor. 

"I feel like, when I arrive at the hospital, I want a glass of whiskey, I want the epidural in my back and I want to get hit in the face with a baseball bat and wake me up when it's over because I've seen the videos  and it looks terrifying," she admits.

Hmmm. So since we're not as talented as dissecting clues as Veronica Mars was, it appears we'll just have to wait and see if Kristen has a boy or not!
