No, she can't. Do you have a name picked out? Not yet, we're still trying to figure it out. That's like a really important thing. So we wanna make sure it's right, but yeah. My best friend, she just had a baby last week and she's saying that a lot of other moms are giving her tons of advice. Are you getting a lot of mom advice? Advice. Yeah, I get advice from everybody. [LAUGH] But I'm the most relaxed pregnant woman you'll ever meet. My nursery's not done, I'm having the baby soon. [LAUGH] It could happen literally right now. I just feel like, you know what, people have been doing this for a really long time, having babies These, and it'll come out and she'll be okay. [LAUGH] You know what I mean?

What was it like working together? Did you all exchange stories and that sort of thing? Actually he. Saw one of the first edits of the film, and was really inspired by it. And decided to write an original song called Start, and- He was really good at that. Yes, because he's amazing. And he came onboard as an executive producer. But I asked him, how is it with the baby? He's like, sometimes great, sometimes not. [LAUGH] [LAUGH] Very honest. Yeah, that was like, that's the truth, you know it Amy. Need. So I guess Little Loon is teething right now, so, you know. Sleep when the baby sleeps. That's my advice. Yes. Yeah, he gives good advice. When the baby sleeps, you sleep. Don't worry about cleaning, none of that.
