“They’ve been talking about it for a long time and actually it’s been my son who’s been like, ‘Mom, we need to have another baby,’ and I never wanted to get his hopes up,” the South Carolina native explained to Us. “So when we told him, he was through the roof. So excited. They’re already calling it ‘their baby,’ and they have names picked for if it’s a boy or a girl — they’re ready!”

Later that same month, John Mellencamp’s daughter used pink confetti to reveal that she is pregnant with a girl. “Of course, we would have been equally excited either way, as @tedwinator, the kids and I are just blessed to have a healthy baby no matter the gender,” Teddi captioned her Instagram reveal.

Cruz is “so pissed” about the baby-to-be’s sex, the pregnant star admitted to Us in November. “He’s picking out names like Catboy, Pugsley,” she said. “I’m like, ‘Buddy, we can’t.’ And he’s like, ‘Well, that can be her a nickname. If you want to call her Pugsley or Catboy you’re welcome to, but I think you’ll change once she’s born.’”
