It’s all in a name and while some parents agonize over the endless options for baby-on-the-way, Jenna Elfman and her husband Bodhi can count themselves among the lucky ones: the couple chose their son’s name before they discovered they were expecting!

“Frankly, we knew we were going to try and conceive and a month before we even started — it took, like, one time — Bodhi turned to me and said, ‘Story Elias Elfman.’ I said, ‘Done, love it,'” Jenna tells the Los Angeles Times.

The name game wasn’t completely smooth sailing for Jenna and Bodhi — the actress laughs that before settling on the moniker, she crossed quite a few suggestions off the list!

Relishing her role as mom, Jenna cites spending time with her baby boy as her greatest joy. “It’s my most favorite thing in the whole world,” she reveals. “Not that spending time with your kid is an indulgence, it’s a responsibility, but it’s like indulgence in terms of shirking other responsibilities.”

To that end, despite her successful acting career, Jenna occasionally finds herself yearning for a life as a stay-at-home mom. “Back in the day, that was a woman’s job: to maintain the house and raise kids, and raise them well,” she says.

Next up for Jenna is the season premiere of her CBS show Accidentally on Purpose on September 21st at 8:30 p.m. She and Bodhi expect baby no. 2 in March.
