So you know Dierks Bentley and his wife, Cassidy, are expecting a baby, child No. 3.

After the couple found out the baby's gender, they told Luke Bryan first that they're having a boy. That was mostly because of timing: Luke called right after the Bentleys found out.

Luke's first reaction: "Man, you're going to have someone to go fishing with and all this stuff."

Luke's second reaction was to offer advice on naming the boy.

"His advice on names is, whatever I name my kid has to sound like someone that you could get totally hammered with," Dierks told reporters recently.

"That's the filter that all the names have to flow through, like, 'Man, I went out last night and got hammered with Bo Bryan,'" he said, laughing.

"So that's his criterion for names. Yeah, so, maybe it'll be Luke Bentley. I've been hammered with Luke many times."
