Courteney Cox spilled the beans to Ellen DeGeneres that her ex-husband David Arquette and his girlfriend Christina McLarty are having a boy.

"They're going to have a baby boy," Cox, 49, said Tuesday on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." "I hope I'm allowed to say that."

"Well, now you've said it," DeGeneres said. "Is (Coco) excited about being a big sister?"

Coco is Cox's daughter with Arquette. You know she's the child of celebrities because she has a weird name.

"Yeah, she's really excited," Cox said. "At first she was nervous because, you know, it's a big deal. At first, I was nervous, I was like woo, heavy."

The "Cougartown" actress and Arquette married in 1999 and divorced in May 2013. Arquette, 42, has dated "Entertainment Tonight" correspondent McLarty on-and-off for more than two years. A source told Us Weekly in November the pair are expecting their first child together.

Cox told DeGeneres she has a good relationship with Arquette and McLarty. "Now it's great and we actually all had dinner the other night," she said. "The whole family. It's a very unique relationship. All of us, like literally, me and Christina and David and Coco. It's great though."

Maybe Arquette will name his new son "Taco."

Cox didn't say whether her rumored new boyfriend was there. Us Weekly reported that Cox was photographed attending Jennifer Aniston's holiday party with Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid.
