Nick Viall and his fiancée Natalie Joy are inching closer to meeting their baby girl.

While chatting with PEOPLE about his partnership with Mucinex to introduce Mucinex Kickstart – a powerful multi-symptom cold & flu relief with a morning jolt of instant cooling sensation that helps him power through days – the Bachelor alum, 43, shared how he and Joy, 25, are excited about the name they're going to give their daughter.

"We haven't shared it yet, but we do feel good about it," the host of The Viall Files says. "Her middle name is inspired by family and her first name is a name that Natalie came up with and I thought it was great and we just kind of stuck with it."

Viall also shares that he and Joy are currently finishing up the final touches to their nursery. While he didn't reveal details about the room, he says they're "pretty much done with the heavy lifting."

"We're ready when she's ready," he adds.

As Viall and Joy count down the days until their little one arrives, the reality star says he's looking forward to "all the firsts I'll get to experience with her."

"It is super exciting. Even if I'm not sleeping, I'm sure eventually want some sleep. But right now I'm just excited about, you know, being a dad."

Looking back at the couple's pregnancy journey, Viall admits it's been challenging planning a wedding and getting ready for a baby at the same time. However, Viall notes that his job has been the easy one.

"Natalie, she's the one who's pregnant," he says. "You know, she's going through a lot of new firsts and experiences. So I feel very lucky to just have her by my side. I'm just trying to support her and make sure she's feeling well."
