Don’t ask Anne Hathaway about her soon-to-be baby’s name. The pregnant actress recently talked to Live with Kelly and Ryan’s Ryan Seacrest and guest co-host Liza Koshy about how she enjoys to pull baby name pranks instead of sharing her real potential picks.

Hathaway told Seacrest about her responses to baby name questions, saying “It’s really cruel, but I enjoy it so much.” She went on to add, “Everyone’s so sincere about it and happy for you and being nice to you and all those things, so I like to twist that.”

The actress revealed that during her first pregnancy, with three-year-old son Jonathan Rosebanks, she and her husband Adam Shulman would, “try to come up with names that are beautiful-sounding but will make other people intensely uncomfortable.”

So what name did Hathaway and Shulman share when asked about their first baby’s name? The celeb mama told Seacrest, “We came up with the name ‘Quandré.” Now that Hathaway is pregnant again, the baby name continues. She revealed, “Again, beautiful name. They say, ‘Do you know the name?’ And we go, ‘Africa’.”

As for her baby’s real name—we’ll all just have to wait until after the birth!
