My Name Is Earl star Jason Lee didn’t just describe his show’s season’s finale on Thursday morning’s Today show – he let slip the gender of the baby he and girlfriend Ceren Alkac are expecting.

It’s a girl.

The announcement, made while standing outside in a very damp Rockefeller Plaza (it is raining in New York), even seemed to surprise Today regulars Meredith Vieira, Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Ann Curry.

The child, who is due in the fall, will be the first for the couple. The actor’s rep announced the pregnancy exclusively to PEOPLE late last month.

Lee, 38, also has a 4-year-old son, Pilot Inspektor, with his ex, actress Beth Riesgraf.
