Move over, Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Step off, Jennifer Meyer.

My Name is Earl star Jaime Pressly, 29, gave birth Friday morning to a baby boy, Dezi James Calvo, adding to the list of engaged, but unmarried moms who apparently misread the manual.

But congratulations go out to Jaime just the same. According to Pressly’s rep, Dezi was born at 7:31 a.m. at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He weighed in at 6 pounds, 4 ounces.

It is her first child with fiancé Eric Cubiche, 32, to whom she has been engaged since last October.

Jamie Pressly found out she was pregnant after taking nine pregnancy tests to be sure.

“After the first one, Eric said, ‘Really? Take another one,'” she said.

The couple said they were planning to name the baby “Dezi James” – even if it were a girl – because of their longstanding joke in which Cubiche calls out, “Luuuucy, I’m hooome!” whenever he comes home, a la Desi Arnaz in the television show I Love Lucy.

Eric Cubiche, like Arnaz, is of Cuban descent. We guess that makes the kid’s name okay. Either way, it’s no Suri Cruise.

Pressly initially denied media reports that she was pregnant because she was only one-and-a-half months along and was worried about miscarriage.

“I lied and lied and lied!” she said.

When she was four months along, the actress told Us that it so far had been an uneventful pregnancy.

“I live off Tylenol,” she confided. “The mood swings you can’t do anything about. You want to stab people and you don’t know why! I’m still tired. You wake up sleepy.”

Kind of like how Lindsay Lohan lives off coke and booze.

Cubiche, who works as a DJ, proposed to the actress on October 17 after a year of dating, but like François-Henri Pinault and Salma Hayek, the couple has not yet set a wedding date.

The actress has said that she plans to drop those post-pregnancy pounds by her next birthday on July 30. “I want to lose the baby weight by my 30th birthday!” she said in November.

“Three weeks after I have the child I’ll be back in the gym 4-5 days a week two hours at a time. I can’t wait to get my body back.”

That’s what Britney Spears was saying after giving birth to Jayden James. Now if we can just get her into some normal clothes.
