House of Lies star Kristen Bell, 32 and boyfriend, actor Dax Shepard, 38, are expecting their first child this year, and except for a few baby bump photos on Twitter, they’ve pretty much keep their pregnancy details on lockdown.

But Kristen may have given away the gender of her bump — and it sounds like it might be a boy!

So who is the super sleuth who got Kristen to split the beans? Why it’s everyone’s favorite daytime talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres! In an interview on Ellen, Kristen casually mentioned that Dax is excited about “all the off-roading he’ll have in this tiny partner.” Of course, Ellen couldn’t resist asking if his new driving partner was a boy, to which Kristen coyly replied, “Maybe?”

After backtracking that girls can off-road too — because so many of them count the “sport” as a hobby — regardless of the sex of the baby, Kristen did tell Ellen that she’s completely terrified of childbirth.

“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 told Ellen. Ahh, yes, we remember having the same fear.

But not to worry, Kristen, because the pain of it all is completely worth the sweet little baby you get in return. And anyway, women tend to forget how bad childbirth can be — if they didn’t, we’d all be only children!
