David Arquette Says Son Charlie Refuses to Say Sister Coco’s Name: ‘It’s a Power Move’

10/17/2015 at 11:30 PM ET

Even at a mere 17 months old, David Arquette‘s son Charlie West knows how to play the sibling rivalry game with big sister Coco.

“He’s still holding off on saying [Coco’s] name,” Arquette told PEOPLE before performing in the preview of the stage version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. “He says everyone’s name but hers. I think it’s a power move.”

It’s less of an indictment of how the toddler feels toward his 11-year-old sister, as it is about how Charlie feels about sharing the role of center of the universe.

“He’s like, ‘Wait a second, you’re going to get attention too?’ ” jokes Arquette.

David Arquette Buys Stunning Diamond Ring for Daughter Coco

12/15/2014 at 05:00 PM ET

No last-minute holiday shopping for David Arquette: He has already made a big buy for the little lady in his life.

While in Miami earlier this month, Arquette stopped by the U.S. launch of jewelry line YVEL at MC Kitchen, where he purchased the line’s Dazzling Black & White Ring ($11, 500) for daughter Coco Riley.

According to a source, Arquette, 43, “went crazy over the jewelry — even re-merchandising some of the cases.”

Eventually, the actor settled on the stacked jewel-encrusted sparklers for his 10-year-old daughter with ex-wife Courteney Cox because of their “very dainty and delicate feel.”

David Arquette is all about second chances.

Since welcoming son Charlie West in April, the actor-director and fiancée Christina McLarty are over the moon as new parents.

“Fatherhood the second time around is so great because I have learned from my past mistakes,” Arquette, 43, who is also dad to daughter Coco, 10, with ex-wife Courteney Cox, told PEOPLE during an Art Basel party Wednesday night in South Beach.

“Since Charlie has come into my life, I love Coco more than ever,” he adds. “Having a son has brought back memories and made me realize how much I miss enjoying her as a baby.”

Arquette, who is a fan of IWC Schaffhausen’s Portofino Midsize watch collection campaign, looked dapper in a dark suit during the dinner and party at W South Beach.

David Arquette is relishing being a father for the second time.

The actor and club owner became a dad again when he and fiancée Christina McLarty welcomed son Charlie West three months ago, and he’s taken a hands-on approach to parenting — literally.

“I’m good at diaper duty. It’s my second time around, so I have some experience under my belt, but it’s 10 years later, so that changes things,” he told PEOPLE on Wednesday at the Imagine Ball Presented by John Terzian & Randall Kaplan Benefiting Imagine LA, hosted at the House of Blues in West Hollywood.

But his 10-year-old daughter, Coco, is giving him a run for his money. “She’s on diaper duty probably more than me!” he jokes.

Arquette, 42, said Coco has really embraced her role as a big sister. “She’s never jealous,” he explains. “She’s just the best big sister ever. She can’t stop kissing him enough!”

Becoming a father can be a daunting prospect, but as David Arquette prepares for his baby boy on the way, the actor is not letting the stress get to him.

“I’ve done it once so there’s not that fear that a first-time parent has because you just don’t know what to expect,” Arquette, 42, told PEOPLE after the TCAs panel at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, Calif. on Sunday.

“Animals across the world have babies and they know how to take care of them instinctually. Us humans get so in our heads about it all but as soon as the baby comes it is just instinct.”

But Arquette – who is already a parent to his daughter Coco, 9, with ex-wife Courteney Cox – admits that becoming a father is a life changer and he is making sure to schedule his work with his girlfriend Christina McLarty‘s due date in mind.

01/07/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

Her parents, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, may be veteran actors, but that didn’t stop Coco from feeling nervous for her upcoming role — big sister!

But once the initial shock that Arquette was expecting a baby boy with girlfriend Christina McLarty wore off, the 9-year-old’s feelings turned to sheer excitement.

“At first she was nervous because it’s a big deal. At first, I was nervous! I was like, ‘Woo, heavy.’ Now it’s great,” the Cougar Town actress, 49, says during Tuesday’s appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Since their split in 2010, both Cox and Arquette have taken a united stand when it comes to Coco and, despite the actor’s growing brood, little has changed.
