    Picking out a baby name can be very stressful—something that pregnant Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are discovering the second time around – find out why everyone’s talking about Chrissy’s baby bump at the moment.

    The couple, who are expecting their second child in June, are struggling to decide what they’ll call their new son when he arrives.

    Teigen opened up about the predicament to Ellen DeGeneres on an episode of her talk show on Monday. ‘Boy names are really tough,’ she said. ‘I don’t even think he’ll have a middle name because we can’t even think of a first name.’

    Maybe inspiration will strike in the same way it did when Teigen and Legend decided on their daughter, Luna Simone’s name. ‘There was a blood moon happening. It was a very beautiful night — really big, vivid red moon, just gorgeous,’ she explained.

    ‘I have this love for space, and I think about space camp all the time, and my days at space camp as a youngster. And so I just thought Luna was perfect, and she’s a perfect Luna.’

    Of course DeGeneres has a few suggestions for Teigen. ‘What about “Lunar” for him?’ DeGeneres joked. ‘Lunar, I like it,’ Teigen said before bursting into laughter. The host didn’t stop there. ‘What about “Urban?” Urban Legend,’ she prompted. (Very Kim and Kanye, Ellen.)

    We don’t think that Teigen will take those suggestions on board, but she did reveal that she’s toying with ‘Dick Legend’ – which DeGeneres put a hard stop on.

    Other people seem to think that Teigen and Legend should name their kid John Jr. and call him J.J. ‘Everyone’s like, “Why don’t you do the J.J. thing, John Jr.?” But John and his ego, he was like, “I don’t want him to feel like he has to live up to that.”

    ‘And I was like, “Wow, you are a jerk,”‘ she joked. ‘”Sorry, heaven forbid he do what you do. So incredible.”‘

    It wouldn’t be an Ellen appearance without some fun and games. DeGeneres challenged Teigen to a game called ‘You Don’t Know Jack About John’ to quiz her on knowledge about her husband. Let’s just say it didn’t go so well…

    To be fair, DeGeneres asked some tough questions about John, but Teigen felt a bit embarrassed.

    We can’t wait to find out what they do decide to name their baby boy.
