"Good Morning. I was thinking about... I don't know the gender, I don't know if we're having a girl or a boy," Williams sais. "So, I'm thinking about some names and I was like maybe I should do something with my favorite Disney characters because I love Disney and as you know, I'm like their biggest fan," Williams said.
"So, if it's a girl, it could be like malecifent (Maleficent), that's how you say it?" she added. "It could be Scar, if it's a boy, love Scar. misunderstood a little bit. What else? Gaston. how cpuld I forget Gaston. Ursula, classic, got to love Ursula. Lady Gothel, maybe I can call her Lady Gothel if it's a girl. So just been through these names. Telling you, I'm onto something."
