Kevin Hart says he’s leaving the important task of naming his third child up to the true head of his household.

“I don’t run my house, my wife does,” jokes Hart in a new interview for his upcoming animated film, Captain Underpants. “I can’t make these decisions. I do nothing, I don’t wear the pants and I’m not trying to act like I do.”

Hart and his wife, model Eniko Parrish Hart, are expecting their first child together, a baby boy.

The couple – who wed in 2016 – announced their big news on Mother’s Day, and told PEOPLE in a joint statement, “We are overjoyed about our new addition to our family.”

The 37-year-old – who is father to Hendrix, 9, and Heaven, 12, from a previous marriage – confirms that he and his wife have been “thinking about names.”

Hart’s only stipulation for the moniker? “For me, I’m just thinking about anything with a Kevin in it.”

He added, “I don’t care what it is as long as Kevin is in there somewhere.”

[MUSIC] Why a book? Why not? Me saying I Can't Make This Up, Life Lessons by Kevin Hart, this It's truth in that, I think outside of the comedy there's another level to me that exists that it's time that people. People learn about. This guy is a person who is flawed to a certain degree but who embraces them, who is built off of it. And ultimately became the man that he is today. I think the hardest think to honestly share in my book was the in-depth relationship with me and my parents. Really Really, really going outside of the frame. Opening up about these frames, putting them in my book, being brutally honest about it was just something that I felt was necessary, something that I felt in my fan base would respect and I pride myself on spreading positivity. And positivity and no way, shape or form should ever be misconceived to be perfection. You're a person who just lives and loves energy, and I give it to get it. And I think this book is putting myself out there in a way to receive more of it. And hopefully that energy comes hand over fist. [MUSIC]
