Earlier this year, Hannah told PEOPLE Now that her husband had already settled on a name for their bundle of joy, but that she wasn’t exactly feeling it.

“I don’t wanna tell you, ’cause I don’t think that’ll be the name, personally,” the 27-year-old model said of keeping mum on Jeter’s pick. “We have some brainstorming to do. We have some time.”

“I don’t like anything now, that I’m hearing,” she admitted. “But that’s probably ’cause I’m just an emotional hot mess lately. So everything, I’m like, ‘Never, I could never name her that!’ So we’ll see.”

Davis Jeter was ready, however, to embrace all things girly girl. She admitted, “[Derek and I] both have two nephews right now [whom] we absolutely adore and we spend a lot of time with, so I’m really excited to buy all the girly fun stuff because we’ve been buying boy things for years.”

Added the then-mom-to-be, “I want an Easy-Bake Oven, I want the dollhouse. Barbie car.”
