It’ll be a girl for Larry Hernandez!

The regional Mexican singer, 36, and his girlfriend of five years, Kenia Ontiveros, 22, revealed the sex of their second child on Sunday’s season two finale of his mun2 hit reality series, Larrymania.

“I am thrilled that it’s going to be a girl!” Hernandez tells PEOPLE exclusively, adding that he and Ontiveros were both surprised to learn they were expecting a daughter.

“A lot of people said it was going to be a boy,” Hernandez says.

And Ontiveros, who’s currently 36 weeks pregnant, adds: “All of our family and friends said it would be a boy — even Larry thought so … When I found out it was a girl, I was shocked,” she tells PEOPLE.

Ontiveros recalls the day she shared the happy news with Hernandez.

“Larry was on tour at the time and asked me not to tell him over the phone, but rather in person,” she shares. “When I saw him at the airport, I asked him to take a guess. He quickly replied, ‘It’s a boy’ and I said, ‘No, it’s a girl.'”

She adds, “He was very surprised, but he was also completely overjoyed.”

Hernandez says he would’ve been happy “with a boy or a girl” and says “the most important thing is that we give birth to a healthy baby.”

The baby, due in late December, will be the second child for the couple, who are already parents to 3-year-old daughter Daleyza.

Hernandez — also dad to sons, Larry Jr, 11, and Sebastian, 7, from a previous relationship — is looking forward to balancing out his brood. “I’m happy because I have my two sons and now I’ll have two daughters,” he says.

Adds Ontiveros: “He’s excited that Daleyza will now have a little sister to play with.”

As for baby names, Ontiveros has a few contenders in mind. “We like Dalary and Dayana. Larry likes names [that start with ‘D’]. We also like Victoria,” she says.

Wow – so he was 31 years old, and she was 17 when they started dating? CREEPY. What parent lets their teenager date someone over 30?

Andi on

I know I’m being judgmental, but all I can think about is they got together when she was 17 and he was 31?

The Truth on

Five years? So, was 17 when they started dating?!

Mary on

Wow, maybe it’s just the photo or the angle, but his head looks massive.

lola on

A 30 year old with a minor. That is just wrong in so many ways!

liz on

Honestely, stop worrying about their ages my husband and i are 10yrs apart but that didnt stop us from loving one another !I Love watching the show with my family and congratulations !

Latisha on

Was he an immature 31, cause I can’t even come close to thinking of any other reason why he would date a 17 year old at that age.

Dawn on

I agree with the 17 year old dating a 31 year old, but she’s so young she’s only 11 years older than her stepson! How can a kid look at someone that’s only 11 years older than them as a parental figure?

Mexican men straight from Mexico like young, young girls. Easier to control I guess.

Angie on

Don’t base your opinion on just one man….my
husband is 2 years older than and he does NOT control me!

@tinat parents who are interested in the money he makes and not the age of their daughter’s boyfriend. Its very common in the Latino community. Smh.

It’s not judgmental. People don’t seem to understand what that word means. Judgmental is, “you have twenty tattoos? Ewww, that makes you a freak!”

Being shocked and appalled that someone is breaking laws AND what is a normative sense of right-and-wrong for their culture is not judgmental.

Anonymous on

K- But the thing is, we don’t actually know that they broke any laws. They live in Mexico by the sounds of it, and the age of consent there might be lower than it is here in the U.S.(heck, even here it’s not the same all over. While 18 is the age of consent in most states, in some it’s 17 or even 16!).

And if indeed they didn’t break any laws then, in my opinion, yes, it IS a bit judgemental to be getting on their case about their age difference!

BTW, congrats to them (sad that no one has said that yet)!
