When we think of the Teen Mom franchise, we often think of the attention-grabbing train wrecks like Jenelle Evans and Farrah Abraham.

But we like to think it’s the more stable, less psychotic moms who have kept fans coming back all these years.

Case in point: Chelsea Houska.

Chelsea Houska and Her Baby Bump

At the moment, it’s hard to think of a more stable – and beloved – couple than Chelsea and Cole DeBoer of Teen Mom 2 fame.

While they fly under the radar, Chelsea and Cole got married back in October, and their first child together is due in February.

There’s been the usual amount of fan scrutiny, or at least curiosity, surrounding Chelsea’s pregnancy, as with any TM star.

For the most part, Chelsea has been game to offer regular social media updates and teases to her legion of adoring fans.

We know the baby’s gender (It’s a boy!); we’ve seen Chelsea’s baby bump photos, and we even know the exact due date (February 14).

But there’s one detail Chelsea refuses to divulge:

Chelsea Houska: 25 Weeks Pregnant

Fans have been clamoring for the kid’s name.

She knows what it’s going to be, but The Housk won’t go any further online than revealing that it’s something truly original.

Chelsea told WetPaint in a recent interview:

"We do have a name picked out but we’re not going to announce it until he’s born but yeah, it’s been pretty funny to see the names people come up with."

She added that she’s had a good laugh at fans’ attempts to try and guess the mysterious moniker, including a couple of obvious guesses: 

“Cole Jr., Randall," she said, referring to her awesome dentist dad. "That’s not even my dad’s name, it’s Randy, it’s not Randall!”

Chelsea has no problem offering fans a couple hints.

Gotta build up the intrigue, right? She seems confident, however, that no one will guess her future bundle of joy’s name ahead of the big day:

“Last names as first names are my favorite!” she said.

“The name we picked is actually a fairly common last name that we’ve seen but rarely [have ever heard as] a first name."

"We want something that we don’t hear much.”

Smith? Johnson? Williams? Jones?

Those are among the more common last names in the United States, though she did say it’s "fairly" common and not incredibly common.

Hmm. Your guess is as good as ours.

She stated on Twitter that she and Cole both love the name they’ve chosen, but the selection process wasn’t always smooth sailing.

Houska revealed that at one point, she was pushing for the name Knox (which fits the last-name bill), but Cole was having none of it.

What did they eventually settle on?

Again, she’s not spilling. But Chelsea previously said that all her check-ups for the baby have been healthy, and her due date is coming up.

Like, really fast approaching!

On December 7, Houska revealed that she had just 10 weeks remaining in her pregnancy, which put her due date around mid-late February.

With her signature sense of humor, the beautiful South Dakota native also revealed that she’s already begin planning for the delivery.

In more ways than one.

Mentally, and physically.

"Making a list of things I need to get/pack for my hospital bag," she shared with her fans, and "adult diapers was #5 on that list."

Hey, having given birth before, she knows what to expect, and anyone reading this who’s also a mom can no doubt relate.

As we count down the days until Aubree’s big brother arrives, watch Teen Mom 2 online to see the cute couple’s road to parenthood!

And shake your head at Adam Lind. That guy

UPDATE, 1/25: Chelsea Houska gave birth to her baby boy, and she was right about his name being a surname that’s fairly common!
