Who needs a book of possible baby names when you've already got a 4-year-old at home who can't wait to be a big brother?!

"He's so excited," a self-described very pregnant Alicia Keys, who's expecting her second child with hubby Swizz Beatz, gushed on Live! With Kelly & Michael today about son Egypt.

The proud mom continued, "He comes up and kisses the belly all the time, and he's always asking, ‘Mommy, can the baby be in the bed with me?' I'm like, ‘well not at the beginning.'"

Aws all around.

Asked if Egypt would prefer that she have a boy or a girl, Keys—who has not officially revealed the sex of baby No. 2—admitted that her firstborn was all about having a little brother.

But Egypt is flexible—he has suggested names for both, taken from one of his favorite Disney animated classics.

"He's like, 'What about Prince Eric or Ariel?'" Keys recalled.

So long as mommy doesn't have to give up her golden voice, The Little Mermaid it is!

Keys, who jetted back to New York after performing at the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards on Sunday, told E! News a couple of weeks ago that she felt "really good," but that her husband often had to remind her to get some rest.

As for Egypt, who was still "up in the air" at the time but apparently has since settled on preferring a brother, Keys said that he was practicing toting around a baby with his own little doll.

"He's like, ‘Am I supposed to be doing this? Am I supposed to be doing that?' He's so ready. It's a blessing," she said.
