Mel Gibson confirms 8th child: Just call him Octo-Mel!
Asked about his split, Gibson said: "My wife and I, our marriage ended three years ago and we've been separated ever since then," Gibson said. "These things happen. It's unfortunate, it's sad, but you know she is an admirable woman -- we still got kids together. We're friends."
When Leno pressed Gibson by asking, "So what happened?" Gibson replied, "Look. When it's all said and done, I did a pretty good hatchet job on my marriage myself. I'm to blame. If you're inclined to judge, put it here."
Leno teased Gibson about dating a younger woman. "What, is she 17, 18?"
When Gibson revealed that Grigorieva was almost 40, he said, "Now I am going to have two women mad at me!"
Gibson confirmed the pregnancy rumors. "This is true. We're gonna have a child."
Piling it on, Leno kept teasing, "So that will make 29?"
Gibson responded, "Well, actually eight. I guess I'm Octo-Mel."
