Posted on

Lake Bell has finally revealed her 3-month-old son’s name – and what it was definitely not inspired by.

When Kimmel asked the Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later star if Ozzi was named after British rocker Ozzy Osbourne, Bell said, “No – but we can go with that.”

Her latest obsession is actually Mom and Dad’s cell phones, and since Nova isn’t yet allowed to have “screen time,” Bell says they’ve given her a fake device of her own.
