NEW YORK (AP) _ Come October, Jerry Seinfeld will have a new gig: dada dada dada.

Longtime Seinfeld pal Regis Philbin made the announcement today on his syndicated ``Live With Regis and Kathie Lee'' show.

The talk show host said Seinfeld, 45, called him Wednesday night with the news that he and wife Jessica Sklar are going to have a baby in October.

Seinfeld's spokeswoman, Elizabeth Clarke, said it's true but would say only that the child, the first for both Sklar and Seinfeld, is due in the fall.

The couple married in December and reportedly is shelling out as much as $40 million to buy Billy Joel's Long Island mansion. The 12-acre spread in East Hampton, which the couple is expected to formally take ownership of in May, will have plenty of room for a swing set.

Philbin joked that if the baby was a boy they should name him Regis. Other possibilities? How about Kramer or George?
