Anne Hathaway Plays Baby Name Prank

Anne Hathaway Plays the Best Prank When People Ask Her What She’s Naming Her Baby-to-Be

Anne Hathaway is expecting her second child very soon, but she’s not yet sharing the details of her baby bliss. So no, she’s not ready to share her baby name, but she is ready to share the hilarious baby name prank she plays on people.

Hathaway, who stars in the new Amazon Prime Video series Modern Love, was on Live with Kelly and Ryan earlier this month to discuss her new show, as well as her expected arrival. She joked with Ryan Seacrest and guest host Liza Koshy that she jokes around with people who ask about her baby’s name.

She admitted that she likes “to wind people up” when they ask about the baby. When people ask about the baby’s name, she tries to “come up with names that are beautiful-sounding but will make other people intensely uncomfortable.”

When the star was pregnant with her son, Jonathan, she and her husband, Adam Shulman, would tell people that they were naming him ‘Quandre,’ but few would get the pronunciation correct. “And then you correct them, and they never get it right,” Hathaway said.

With her second, Hathaway and Shulman have been telling people they’re naming the baby ‘Africa.’

“And you make really intense, sincere contact and you don’t look away and you don’t blink,” she told the co-hosts. “And you have to watch them squirm.”

The couple do know the sex of the baby, but aren’t spilling the beans just yet. She’s also staying mum about the due date, which is rumored to be in just a couple weeks.

Hathaway has been feeling “well” overall during the pregnancy, she told Extra, but “some days you wake up and you’re like, ‘Really, that’s my face? You kind of feel carved from butter.”

You can catch Hathaway on Modern Love, now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
