The actor's girlfriend is seven months pregnant with a boy, his agent tells PEOPLE. Just this week he told Moviefone that he's putting his career on the shelf for now, as "working on the birth of this baby in two months" was "all that matters."

"He feels awesome about it, he's excited and thrilled and can't wait," his agent exclaims.

The couple named their son Luke.
