Things got a tiny bit awkward at the Screen Actors Guild Awards Saturday in Los Angeles when E! host Brad Goreski mixed up Christina Ricci‘s son’s name with her dog’s on the red carpet.

“How’s your baby boy?” Goreski, 38, asked The Addams Family actress. (PEOPLE confirmed in August 2014 that Ricci and her husband James Heerdegen had welcomed a son.)

“Amazing!” Ricci, 35, replied.

When Goreski asked how Ricci’s dog Karen was adjusting, Ricci said: “There’s the two of them. Freddie and Karen are best friends,” revealing her son’s name for the first time.
