When E! News confirmed in June that Lake Bell had given birth to her second child with husband Scott Campbell, details were scarce. But, when the actress/director appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday, Lake casually revealed that she welcomed a boy named Ozzy.

"When you tell people that you had a baby three months ago, and they see you, do they become angry at you?" host Jimmy Kimmel asked. Lake laughed and said, "They're just like, 'Which Spanx did you buy?' That's usually the next question. And it's all about ratcheting it in."

Jimmy wondered whether Lake had named her son after rock 'n' roll legend Ozzy Osbourne. "No, but we can go with that," she joked. "I mean, he's great. It was one of those things where my husband and I were so excited to have just one kid. We have a beautiful daughter, Nova. She's awesome—named after the Chevy, obviously. It's also celestial, but you know what I mean—more so the Chevy. We were so excited to travel the world. We were like, 'We're going to be modern. We don't have to have two kids.'" What changed? "We had sexual intercourse."

How does Nova feel about being a big sister?

"She's having some trouble. She plays with the baby dolls and stuff, so I thought it was going to be a shoo-in—like a real, live baby doll," said the 38-year-old actress, who wrote, directed and starred in the upcoming comedy I Do...Until I Don't (out Sept. 1). "She's having trouble with it."

"Her main thing is she just wants screen time, because we haven't done that yet. We're going to do it; it's part of the thing, right? She's going to get there. I'm not that new age. I understand it exists. Maybe for her third birthday she can have, like, two minutes on it. I don't know; I'm a terrible mother. Very strict!" Lake joked. "But because she loves our phone so much, we got her a play phone. We were at Rite-Aid or something, and we were like, 'Oh, there's a play phone; let's just get it. She won't play with ours.' We took it out of the packaging, she's in her car seat, and I heard her talking to some guy named Mark. She was like, 'Hey, Mark comma how are you today, Mark?' I all of a sudden realized...'Who are you talking to?' She's like, 'Question Mark.' And I was like, 'Who is Question—ohh.' We always do the dictation. 'Honey, I'll be there. Are you OK question mark?' 'It looks like I'm running late comma can you prepare dinner period.'"

Since becoming a mother of two, Lake said her life has changed "so vastly."

"When you have one kid, you think it's really hard," she said. Now, "You're in the big leagues."

It's been an adjustment for Lake and Scott. "There's so much wrangling and so many logistics. Your marriage turns into just a logistics conversation. The other day—and I promise this is without hyperbole; this really happened—we were going through our schedules," she told Jimmy. "So, we really made a moment in our schedule to plan our schedule. That happened..."
