The next Antonio Sabàto will have a lot to live up to — and even more to learn to pronounce.

Actor Antonio Sabàto Jr. and his girlfriend, singer Cheryl Moana Marie, announced Wednesday they’re expecting a child together, a son due in the spring.

They plan to name the baby Antonio Sabàto III after his father and grandfather — both actors — and one of his middle names will be Kamakanaalohamaikalani, which means “a beloved gift from the heavens.” (The other middle name is Harvey.)

Sabàto, 38, and Marie met in Los Angeles two years ago after Sabàto returned from Hawaii, where he failed to find lasting love through his reality show My Antonio.

The couple are “both very excited,” his rep says. Sabàto also has a son Jack, 16, whose mother is actress Virginia Madsen, and a daughter, Mina, 7, whose mother is Kristin Rossetti.

“The family is thrilled about the new addition,” the rep adds.

Sabàto next appears in the comedy Balls to the Wall and recently completed the indie drama A Mother’s Secret.
