While it's only been less than three months since Zooey Deschanel revealed she's pregnant with her first child, the soon-to-be first-time-parent already has a slew of enthusiastic babysitters, ready to help her out. 

"It's exciting!," Hannah Simone, who plays Cece on the hit Fox series, told E! News ahead of the seasons' May 5 finale. "It's like all of us are having a baby." 

Asked if the cast has started picking out names for the 35-year-old star's baby-on-the-way with fiancé Jacob Pechenik, Simone replied, "Baby names! I hadn't even thought of that yet. 

"Maybe if it's a boy we'll call him Lil Coach," she quipped, referencing co-star Damon Wayans Jr.'s character.

As for how involved the cast has been with her co-star's pregnancy? 

"I don't think we're going to be at the birth…" Simone said with a laugh. "But she'll have a fleet of babysitters afterwards." 

Likewise, Larmorne Morris, who plays Winston Bishop, was asked about Deschanel's soon-to-be son or daughter and joked that he, too, has been packing on a few lbs. 

"It's weird that the shooting schedule is a little different because there are a lot of things she can't do. And it's just so interesting to watch the process change slightly…you gotta hide the belly," he said before adding, "Me, myself, I've been putting on weight a little bit so sometimes they gotta crop out my belly."

When it comes to the sex of the baby, Morris immediately replied "boy" before suggesting a rather interesting moniker. "L. Ron Hubbard, that's what you should name your kid. Just rolls off the tongue, cool as hell man," he said, namechecking the Scientology founder. 

Last, but certainly not least E! News chatted Jake Johnson and Max Greenfield, who couldn't contain his laughter thanks to his co-star's jokes. 

"I won't be at the birth. That stuff makes me puke..." Johnson quipped before later adding, "Personally I don't think that's what a baby should first see—a grown man barfing."
