Golden Globes: Nick and JoAnna Garcia Swisher Having a Girl
Paul Marks/Broadimage

This spring will bring more than just May flowers for Nick and JoAnna Garcia Swisher — the couple will welcome a baby girl that month as well, they confirm to PEOPLE exclusively.

“I’m just so excited,” the outfielder and first baseman, 32, told PEOPLE at the InStyle/Warner Brothers Golden Globes after-party on Sunday. “As long as she’s healthy, that’s all I really care about.”

As for the mommy-to-be, 33, the former Animal Practice star is just enjoying the “honeymoon stage” of her pregnancy after a “humbling” week of being “really into mayonnaise.”

“I tried to put it on everything but that faded,” Garcia Swisher, who was wearing a Sachin + Babi dress and Marina B. jewelry, explains. “Now I’m just trying to eat healthy and you know, the further I get in the pregnancy the more I need to eat!”

With Swisher — who recently wrapped a stint with the New York Yankees — accepting an offer to play for the Cleveland Indians, the expectant parents have been busy prepping three different nurseries for their bundle of joy.

“My husband works in one city, I work in a second city and we live in a third city, so we have a lot of cribs to buy,” the actress shares.

And though they’ve got several more months to go, the couple can’t wait to meet their daughter.

“It’s been a wonderful journey for us to be able to do this together,” says Swisher. “It’s going to be great. In a couple of months, our lives are going to turn upside-down.”

So exciting! That little girl is going to be beautiful! I live in Ohio and Swisher was soooo excited at his press conference announcing his signing with the Indians about coming back to Ohio (he’s from Columbus) to play for the Indians and his baby on the way!

I just started watching reruns of Reba, she is so cute and funny. They are such a cute couple, I just wish he was still a Yankee. Baby girl will be so cute.

I loved him on the Yankees. He is such a character and you can tell he genuinely enjoys life to the fullest. If the baby is anything like him she will have quite the personality! JoAnna looks beautiful and this baby is bound to be a beauty.

I knew she’d have a girl. Aww i’m so happy for them. I remember her and Van on reba, Steve had a son, and Joanna is having a daughter. Congrads Jo & Nick. Btw, not feeling that dress, she doesn’t look that big?

I am sooo happy for them! They are a great couple. I loved Nick as a Yankee, one of my favorites, and she is absolutely adorable. Pregnancy agrees with her, and I know they will be amazing parents.
