The Wests are going in a different direction with baby names.

If you were expecting Kim Kardashian to name her second child South, guess again. In an interview with NPR’s weekly quiz show, Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!, the pregnant reality star insists that name is off the table.

“I think it’s so stupid,” the mom-to-be, 34, says. “I don’t like South West. North will always be better.”

Daughter North — who turns 2 Monday — already has the “better direction,” according to her proud mama. “I don’t think we’ll go with another direction.”

Previously speaking out about his daughter’s name, Kanye West told radio station HOT 97 that he doesn’t like it when people refer to North’s name as weird. The proud father explained that North’s name is “innovative and fresh.”

As a third-generation actress, Jurassic World star Bryce Dallas Howard says her dad, Oscar-winning director Ron Howard, has got the role of grandpa down.

Bryce’s children, Theo, 8 and Beatrice, 3, with her husband, actor Seth Gabel, are already displaying a few family traits.

“Theo seems to have inherited [my dad’s] complexly imaginative and artistic mind, and Beatrice is gregarious and a natural leader (at 3 years old!), just like him,” she says.

Last Christmas, “I walked in on him showing Theo episodes of The Andy Griffith Show on YouTube, saying, ‘This was me when I was your age,’ ” Bryce, 34, recalls. “Oh, my goodness, my heart could barely take it.”

It’s hard to imagine how Franny Fallon‘s first word will be Dada when she’s surrounded by so many women.

Jimmy Fallon — the Tonight Show host and author of Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada — lives in a female-heavy household. Fallon, 40, and his wife Nancy, 48, welcomed daughter Winnie Rose in July 2013 and added daughter Frances Cole to their brood in December 2014.

Contributing to all the estrogen in the home is the Fallon family’s golden retriever, a girl named Gary Frick.

“I need a man cave,” Fallon tells PEOPLE. “I got a truck — that was a big thing for me. I mean, don’t I look like a truck driver?”

The truck, which Fallon describes as “bigger than my first apartment in New York City,” is only partly the man cave on wheels that he envisioned it would be. “I have the backseats with two baby seats,” Fallon says.

Elisa Donovan is crazy busy — and that’s just the way she likes it.

The 44-year-old actress, mother to 3-year-old Scarlett and PEOPLE.com blogger just starred in The Dog Who Saved Summer (the sixth installment in the series is out now on DVD), will appear in a darker film later this year and still has time to take her daughter to museums.

“I hope that I create an image of a full woman for Scarlett, a woman who has goals and desires and thoughts of her own, but whose primary purpose is being her mom,” Donovan tells PEOPLE.

The Clueless star opens up to PEOPLE about her devotion to both work and motherhood, why one precocious daughter might be enough and husband Charlie Bigelow‘s tea party skills.
