Ryan Reynolds already has a crazy baby name (or two!) up his sleeve.

The actor opened up to Canadian entertainment show etalk while receiving his star at Canada’s Walk of Fame in Toronto on Saturday, and let’s just say his ideas are wild — even for a celebrity parent-to-be.

“On the plane over here I was trying to think of baby names. I don’t want a name that’s anything pretentious or, like, Hollywood-y,” said Reynolds, 37. “So I’m going with Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds … that’s if it’s a girl.”

And if it’s a boy? The funnyman outed himself as a Keeping Up with the Kardashians fan.

Bruce Jenner,” he joked.

Kristen Bell‘s 18-month-old daughter Lincoln is already a great communicator.

“[She can say] a lot of two-syllable words, but she signs mostly because she’s really good at it,” the actress told PEOPLE at This Party Saves Lives event hosted by her company, This Bar Saves Lives, on Thursday night.

She adds, “People recommend doing signs because the baby can communicate with you and say, ‘I want an apple’ or ‘Look at the black dog,’ and you can actually form sentences.”

While Lincoln works on her signing skills, Bell, 34, and husband Dax Shepard, 39, are preparing for the upcoming arrival of their second child. The actress says her pregnancy has fortunately been a breeze — just like her first.

“Thank my lucky stars, it’s been a virtually identical pregnancy,” she shares. “Pregnancy can be really hard for women, and I’m lucky that I’m not really symptomatic. I’m okay with being on my feet and I’m lucky that my body feels really good.”

Kelly Rowland hasn’t been shy about showing off her growing baby belly.

And now that the mom-to-be — who will welcome her first child “in a couple more weeks” — has taken it one step further and has dared to bare it all, she won’t be paying much attention to any backlash.

“It’s really — I won’t say amazing — it’s Godmazing watching your body carry a human,” the singer, 33, tells Elle.

“I took a birthing class and I was amazed by all the things this woman was saying to me about birthing and what the body does naturally. Why wouldn’t you want to celebrate that? The body should be celebrated.”

The Anger Management actress learned that she and her husband, pro hockey player Ryan Miller, are expecting a son during a gender reveal party in Los Angeles on Sept. 27.
