Laila Ali's Baby Will Be a Boy

As a boxing champ and former "Dancing With the Stars" competitor, Laila Ali is used to dealing with boys and pain.

The pregnant "American Gladiators" co-host revealed Saturday, June 7 that she and her husband, retired NFL star Curtis Conway, are expecting a boy, reports

"His name is going to be Curtis Jr. and Mohammed is the middle name," she said at the "Celebrity Family Feud" taping in Los Angeles.

Ali, 30, intends to work with a midwife to do a "natural home birth with no medication."

Being pregnant isn't any excuse for getting out of shape though.

"[I do] "an hour of cardio on the elliptical or spinning, but not such high impact," she says. "Then, I also do some plates and light weight training, but nothing very strenuous."

At times, she has forgotten though.

"My husband has got on me a couple of times saying, 'You're not supposed to be doing that with those weights!'" she reveals "I'm like, 'Oh, okay.'"

So far, Ali has gained about 20 pounds. She's due in about three months.
