In a move that would make Veronica Mars proud, Kristen Bell has cracked the case of the baby name game.

She and husband Dax Shepard were “completely stumped” about what to call their second child earlier this summer, but the expectant parents have now solved the mystery.

“We had a little bit of a breakthrough. We’ve settled on one, thankfully,” Bell, 34, tells PEOPLE. “It’s a lot of pressure, especially because we felt ‘Lincoln’ was so perfect.”

As for when almost 18-month-old daughter Lincoln‘s little brother or sister is due, she says, “Hopefully sometime soon!”

And what does she think of Shepard’s new bell-shaped tattoo on his wedding finger?

“It was surprising. He just came home with a Band-Aid on his finger one day. Those are the kinds of surprises I get at home,” she jokes. “And people wonder why I keep letting him knock me up.”

Sarah Drew: Why I Struggled to Embrace My First Pregnancy

09/24/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

After starting off her second pregnancy with severe morning sickness, Sarah Drew is now taking frequent trips to the bathroom throughout the night, has a strict feeding schedule and is constantly fighting a craving for sweets.

But looks can be deceiving. Despite the rough ride, the actress admits she’s enjoying the experience in a way that she was unable to when pregnant with her now 2½-year-old son Micah Emmanuel.

“The first time it wasn’t just the physicality, it was the emotional weight, too,” the Grey’s Anatomy star tells Fit Pregnancy‘s October/November issue.

“I was mourning the end of a massive chapter in my life … I knew I’d have to sacrifice a lot more than I was used to sacrificing, but I didn’t know how it was going to look and I didn’t know if I was going to be a good mom.”
