“We named the kid already, Phoenix Wolf,” the dad-to-be tells PEOPLE exclusively while discussing his appearance on this week’s Epicly Later’d Viceland episode.

In fact, the moniker has a deeper meaning for the couple: Margera first met his wife at the Phoenix Theater in Petaluma, California, where his brother Jess Margera‘s band CKY was performing at the time. Also? The group’s 2017 album was titled The Phoenix.
The 37-year-old and Boyd Margera were wed in 2013 in Reykjavik, Iceland, and the child will be their first together. The expectant mama is due this winter.

Margera is already excited to pass along some of his own passions to his son. “It’ll be fun teaching him how to skate,” he says. “I have mixed feelings about teaching him my stupid Jackass stunts.”
The parents-to-be hope to spend some time at their home in Barcelona, Spain, after Phoenix arrives, but until then, Margera is focused on shaking his daddy nerves.
“I was really nervous at the beginning, but now I’m getting used to it,” admits the star. “I’ve had a lot of help from my mom and dad. My brother has five kids already.”
