Ginnifer Goodwin: Why Josh’s Last Name Complicates Our Choices

Picking a baby name can be hard, especially in Hollywood. It’s even harder, Ginnifer Goodwin revealed, when considering her husband’s family name.

“Naming a child though, with the last name of ‘Dallas,’ is a little more complicated,” Goodwin, 35, told Jimmy Kimmel during her first public appearance since tying the knot with Josh Dallas.

“Not a first name that begins with a ‘D’ because it gets porny,” she joked, referencing Debbie Does Dallas, “and nothing geographical ’cause it sounds like an airport.”

But Dallas, 32, doesn’t heed his wife’s warning, proposing a very Texas-centric name for their unborn child.

“He was like, ‘Boy or girl, Austin Dallas,’” Goodwin said on the show. “I’m like, ‘I’m pretty sure that is an actual place where planes land. We can’t do that.’”

Won’t be long now!

Kelly Clarkson, who’s expecting a baby girl with husband Brandon Blackstock, made a rare public appearance on Sunday — and showed off her growing baby bump.

The singer, 31, who is now about 30 weeks along, even accentuated her pregnancy by wearing a salmon-colored shirt with a black-and-white ribbon on the front.

“Happy Easter everybody! We celebrated on the lake today. Loving the sun, family and friends!” she wrote on Twitter.

Clarkson has been keeping a low profile in recent months, mostly staying out of the spotlight save for the occasional photo on Twitter.

She appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in December, where she revealed that she and her husband already had a baby name picked out (this was before she even knew she was having a girl) and said it hadn’t been a great pregnancy to that point.

After finding out it’s a girl, she wrote on Twitter: “I knew it! Only a girl could cause this much drama with all this vomiting ha!”

At five months pregnant, Savannah Guthrie is already learning about the wonders of maternity wear.

“I did discover maternity jeans, and I’m going to be writing a song to maternity jeans later — it’s forthcoming off my upcoming album — called ‘Exhale,’ ” she joked to PEOPLE at The Hollywood Reporter’s 35 Most Powerful People in Media party Wednesday.

Sure, stretchy clothes are a pregnancy perk, but the Today show host knows the child she’s carrying is the real blessing.

“I just can’t wait to meet this little baby. I wonder all the time, ‘Who are you?’ ‘What are you going to be like?’ ” she said “I just feel it’s such a privilege to get a chance to raise a little human being, and I hope we do it well.”

“Like, ‘I’m a woman! Look at me making a human! I am a goddess!’”

Once Upon a Time costars Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas are living a real-life fairy tale after tying the knot last week.

Their wedding marked more of a beginning than a happy ending: The actors are also expecting their first child together this spring.  Although Dallas, 32, represented their show solo at WonderCon on Sunday, he gushed about his new wife.

“It was just an incredible day of love with all our families together,” he told PEOPLE of the April 12 ceremony. “And obviously, marrying the woman that I love, that stands out. That’s what it’s all about.”

He may play the brave Prince Charming on Once Upon a Time, but Dallas confessed fatherhood has him scared.

“Hey, I fully admit, I am terrified,” he said. “I’m excited but terrified and nervous. And I can’t wait to meet it. I want it to fully develop and have all its lungs, but I want to meet it soon.”
