Ike Barinholtz, who starred in MADtv and currently has a role on Mindy Kaling's Fox hit, The Mindy Project, is expecting his first child with wife Erica Hanson.

According to Us Weekly, the star is gearing up for his new responsibility. He shared, “I am reading a couple of books. I need like, a baby comic book. A great graphic novel would be so much more fun. But other than that I think I got it.”

The actor shared that his wife is seven months along and has recently learned that they will be having a baby girl. The couple, who married back in 2009, are in the process of picking out a name.

“My wife and I just started arguing about [baby names] recently, so we haven't even had a top three," he said. The star jokingly added, “Uh, Nicki Minaj Barinholtz, Carrie Underwood Barinholtz, Randy Jackson Barinholtz -- and not Randy, the full name Randy Jackson. We do have name books, but they're boring. Just literally a list of names."

Wetpaint reports that though Barinholtz plays a nurse on The Mindy Project, he doesn't want to introduce his newborn to the showbiz world.

He said, “It would be terrifying and I don't know if legally you're allowed to do it and I would not wish that upon her! I want her to be put away from all of this!"

Wife Hanson is due this July.
