Before Friends: Played dumb on Married . . . with Children
Family Life: Wed Melissa McKnight in May; expecting a baby
Best Friends Moment: Kissing Rachel in last season’s finale
What’s Next?: His own Friends spinoff, Joey

There are perks to that sky-high salary. When it comes time for diaper duty, LeBlanc joked before the Emmys, “I’m going to hire someone to do my part of that.” Unlikely. LeBlanc, 36, who’s expecting a baby with model McKnight, 38, in March, is already a hands-on parent to Tyler, 12, and Jacquelyn, 8, McKnight’s children from her previous marriage. “He’s completely a dad to them,” says a friend. With the coming addition, “he’s very excited.” He’s almost as pumped about Joey, a better bet than the Married spinoffs (anyone remember Vinnie & Bobby?) he graced before Friends. So far, “I know I’ll be in it, but that’s about it,” LeBlanc said. Meanwhile, the lowest-key Friend blows off steam dirt-biking at his ranch north of L.A. Says his pal: “He doesn’t need to be out in the spotlight.”
