Italian actress-filmmaker Asia Argento (XXX) tells the New York Post's Page Six column that she is pregnant by gay author J.T. Leroy (Sarah). "Yeah, he gave me the seed," says Argento. "But it's not good luck to talk about it this early." Leroy has said about Argento, "When I'm with her, it's kind of like I'm the girl and she's the boy and our parts are just mixed up. We're hoping for a healthy baby with two heads." The 27-year-old Argento already has a 17-month-old child by Italian rock star Morgan, and Leroy claims to have a 5-year-old son with Speedy, the female lead singer of the band Thistle, for whom Leroy writes lyrics. Argento says her next project is writing, directing, and starring in a screen adaptation of Leroy's collection of short fiction, The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things.
