Agent Zero plans addition

Okay, we forgive Wizards superstar Gilbert Arenas for quitting his addictive blog: He's just too busy being a dad.

"Gilbert takes the night shift," said his fiancee Laura Govan. "He's so diligent when he's home -- takes the kids to school in the morning, picks them up after practice, changes diapers. He's amazing."

The hoops pro, 27, and his intended, 30, have been together eight years and have two children: daughter Izela, 3, son Alijah, 2. They officially got engaged a year ago -- and have another baby girl due Dec. 24. The new arrival called for -- what else? -- a very pink baby shower Saturday at their Great Falls home.

Agent Zero ducked out before the all-girl party, but two dozen of Govan's closest-- her mom, sisters, girlfriends, other NBA spouses -- gathered for the shower hosted by Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, wife of former Wizards head coach Eddie Jordan. The four-hour bash featured plenty of champagne, dinner, cupcakes, shower games, pregnancy pillows for everyone, a "mother-to-be" tiara for Govan -- and lots of luxe baby gifts.

The "awwww" moment? The tiny, adorable Wizards jersey/tutu with a "0" surrounded with rhinestones. "Charrisse, you know how to throw a party, girl!" said Ione Jamison.

And good news, Gilbert! Although Govan's mom would like to see a wedding one of these days, the guest of honor told us she's in no hurry to tie the knot.

"We're just comfortable," she said. "I love the fact that we've grown up together. I watched him grow from a boy to a man. I feel like we're married already. We're not in a rush. I'm not going anywhere, he's not going anywhere."

That tutu looks like it was made by WWW.BELLAARTISTRY.COM. She was wife of NFL QB Jim MIller and started her own line of "studding" jerseys and anything imaginable.

Correction: It is her and she "is" the wife of former Bears QB Jim Miller.

Lets not call it an engagement, because for some one to say they are comfortable shacking up and having bacies is morally wrong in my opinion. He probally knows that his money will become hers if they were married.
