Poor Jamie Kennedy!

Jamie appeared on the Nik Richie Radio show Wednesday night in the guise of promoting his stand up shows this weekend in Ontario, Canada, but the 43-year-old was ambushed by Richie, who wanted to talk about nothing but Jennifer Love Hewitt's big news.

Kennedy and Love Hewitt dated for around a year after hooking up on the set of The Ghost Whisperer in 2009, and the actor/comedian is still clearly hung up on his gorgeous ex.

Jamie very obviously did not want to discuss the subject, but like a dog with a juicy old bone Richie would NOT let it lie!

After repeatedly asking Nik to wait until after the break to discuss the subject, as he wanted to gather his thoughts before answering, he eventually shared that he had only just found out the 34-year-old was pregnant.

Jamie clearly did NOT want to talk about Jennifer's news, but Nik Richie would not let the subject drop!

"What's crazy is that I only found out late yesterday," a beleaguered Kennedy admitted. "Someone told me—an ex-girlfriend, I dated Love after this girlfriend, who is also pregnant.

Despite hearing the baby news, Kennedy was still in the dark though that Jennifer was engaged, until Richie stepped up and kindly filled him in!


Jamie praised his famous ex-girlfriend for being 'a very maternal person' and 'very generous'

"I'm very happy for her," a clearly shocked Kennedy diplomatically responded. "Look, I think she's probably at a wonderful place in her life where she's going to have a baby—you know, she's a very maternal person, so if someone should be a mother it's her—she's a very loving person."

Twisting the knife in further, Richie went on to grill Kennedy about the fact Jennifer's baby daddy and fiancé is her The Client List co-star, Brian Hallisay.

"Do you think this crazy Brian guy trapped her?" Richie asked, going on to point out how successful Love Hewitt is.

"No! I have no idea, I don't know their relationship," Kennedy responded, before firmly marking Richie's card.

"Come on now, it's getting weird. You're just trying to get press. I'll give you a real answer, if you don't manipulate it."

Thankfully, the relentless Richie gave in finally and cut to an ad break, but after the short reprise, he was right back at it!

"It's crazy," Kennedy said of the news after having had a few minutes to compose himself. "I didn't even know what to say, I guess I should send her congratulations."

"Do you think Brian trapped her?" Richie asked again. "She's stuck with this co-star now—she has a thing for co-stars."

Once again, Kennedy tried to diplomatically get his way out before Richie started quizzing him about Jennifer Love Hewitt buying him gifts!

Jamie admitted Jennifer is "a very generous person" and that they regularly went on shopping sprees at her expense to Tiffanys and Cartier, where they purchased matching love bracelets.

Then, in typical Richie style, came the TMI segment.

Richie quizzed Kennedy about his sex life with the actress and about how he never got her pregnant (you'll have to listen to the interview to find out!)

After surviving pretty honorably throughout, Kennedy opened up about his feelings still for Jennifer and why they never made it as a couple.

"It was right at that moment," he admitted. "But the timing wasn't right."

So, if they were together now, would the timing have been right, would they be two kids deep and living happily ever after?

"Potentially," Kennedy carefully answered. "I mean, I'm a lot more level headed—I still have my issues—I don't know how she is, if she's changed her things too."

And, does Jamie have anything to say on national radio to his expectant ex-girlfriend?

"Honestly, I just found out the news," he said. "That's beautiful, congratulations… ermmm… I hope to be invited to the christening."

"That's deep," Richie chimed in.
