There’s a new little sister on the way.

The baby Tamera Mowry-Housley is expecting with husband Adam Housley is a girl, they announced during a taping of The Real.

“IT’S A GIRL! Adam told me the gender of our baby today while taping #TheReal and I was so surprised and excited!!” she captioned a photo on Instagram, taken moments after finding out the sex.

Although the actress — already mom to 2-year-old son Aden — didn’t want to know the sex of her second child, her co-hosts called up Housley, who was keeping it a secret, and tried to convince the couple to spill the beans.

“I love you guys, but I gotta deal with one woman when I go home and I wanna make sure that she’s cool,” he said over the phone.

And then the excitement got the best of the mom-to-be, who took the phone and said, “I wanna know!”

As the audience cheered, Housley revealed, “I am scared out of my mind. We are having a girl!”

After announcing her pregnancy on Twitter, Mowry-Housley shared her happy news on her blog. “We’re very excited and grateful to say that we will be welcoming baby #2 this July!” she wrote.

E! News was the first to report the sex of the baby.

I swear, there’s always that one negative comment with the articles on this site that someone just HAS to post. Congrats on being that person, “JD”. It’s truly sad when you can’t just wish someone well and leave it at that, especially with the nature of this particular article. Smh

Anyway…I’m very happy for Tamera and Adam and bet their daughter is going to be absolutely gorgeous!! Congrats to them!!! 💚
