Peter Sarsgaard and his pregnant wife, Maggie Gyllenhaal, enjoyed a date night out in NYC last night at Jay-Z's concert at Carnegie Hall. Peter chatted with OK! about his wife's cravings, baby names and how is daughter Ramona is adjusting to idea of being a big sister.


"Everyday there’s crazy cravings. Less so this one than the last pregnancy," Peter shared with OK!. "The last pregnancy was more craving oriented, but we went for dinner before coming here and she has not been into eating meat. So — it’s been recommended for the iron — we ordered it and we both just looked at it because I don’t eat a lot of meat either. So we just sort of sat there and stared at it, thought about it."

While Maggie and Peter may not be adjusting to the idea of eating meat, their daughter seems to be adjusting just fine to being a big sister. Peter just hopes that it lasts!

"I think at this point she doesn’t know what she’s in for. It all sounds good," he explained to OK!. "The thing is, I’ve seen kids with siblings. I don’t have any siblings so I don’t know. They kind of generally go for about five minutes, they go, 'Oh, cool! Anyway, what do we do now?' I think it gets kind of boring quickly at first. It takes a while for kids to bond."


So, do Maggie and Peter know the gender of the baby?

"We do, but we’re not sharing," Peter said and added that they have't picked out a name yet. But they have a few picked out!

"I always think it’s nice to have… I think that there were two, maybe, or three [names picked out] for Ramona, like the week before. Then it’s not so bad to have an optional one, and when they’re born you kind of look at them and you go, 'You are a…' (snaps fingers). And then if another one occurs to you, you might pick that one, but it’s nice to have a lot of planning going into it."

"And also, as pregnancies go, you sort of start using the names, you try a couple of different ones. Maybe for a month, you might say one name for a while. It’s the nice thing about knowing the gender of the child, you don’t have to call it 'it.' Which gets to be really weird after it’s like seven months in there. So we’ve been trying out a few names, but nothing solid."

Well, we're sure they'll pick out a good one when the time comes!
