Kyle MacLachlan is not making much progress in his efforts to name the son he’s expecting with wife Desiree Gruber ‘Jethro,’ in honor of his favorite band, Jethro Tull. In a new interview with People, Kyle reiterated that Desiree — due in mid-July — "nixed [Jethro] right away." And while the baby will also not be named Kyle Jr., the couple is not at a complete impasse, either. Kyle said that he and Desiree have "a list of names that we’re trying out." Kyle is "so excited about being a daddy," Desiree beamed, while Kyle added,
It’s one of those crazy things. I’m having the best time watching her body change. I’m paying attention to little kids now.
Although the baby-on-the-way will be their first, between their two extended families Kyle, 49, and Desiree, 40, have nine nieces and nephews. Kyle said,
I’ve had plenty of preparation!
