Marisa Miller: I’m Having Another Baby Boy!

01/22/2015 at 12:15 PM ET

Break out the blue balloons: It’ll be a second son for Marisa Miller.

“We found out we are having another boy and I’m so excited!” the model mama, who’s expecting her second child with husband Griffin Guess in late spring, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

After growing up with two sisters, Miller was looking forward to giving the couple’s 2-year-old son Gavin Lee a sibling — and even more ecstatic after learning the sex of their baby on the way.

“It will be awesome for Gavin to have a buddy,” she says. “I never had brothers so raising a boy has been awesome. Gavin is so funny and I get to be silly all day with him.”

Miller, 36, had a rough start to her second pregnancy — “I was really nauseous and could only handle eating bagels,” she says — but she’s back on track with her healthy habits. “Right now, I’m feeing great!,” she shares, adding she’s eating clean and doing Pilates three days a week.

“This pregnancy has been very different because I’m also chasing around a toddler, so you can’t really lay down if you feel sick or tired,” she explains. “But I also feel a lot less anxious about what’s to come.”

While her first pregnancy was filled with hours of researching “labor, breastfeeding and thinking about every little detail,” Miller admits, these days, her time is spent focusing on the present.

“I’m too busy having fun with Gavin to worry,” she says. “I’m a little nervous about the newborn stage and how sleep deprived you get, but more than anything, I just feel so blessed to have a healthy baby and pregnancy so far.”

She looks really great. I don’t know how far along she is but these women with these “barely there” pregnancies kill me. I was 125lbs when I became pregnant but I was HUGE. People would literally walk up to me and ask if I was having twins!! Nope–he just turned out to be one BIG boy…almost 11 lbs!!

Well, lucky her. She must be at least 5 months along to know the gender and she doesn’t even look pregnant.

Though could People not publish these photos because they make other women self-concious. Most women don’t look like that when they are 5-6 months pregnant.

I’m also having a boy. I already have a 2,5 year old boy. I’m so happy. I’m 7 months along and didn’t gain much weight. Only the belly is big.

I don’t know why people come down so hard on people for having a small bump ( as y’all put it I had 3 babies and with all 3 my bump was small . I didn’t start showing till I was in my sixth month so it is so un fair to say the things that people say, Some people’s body carry there babies different, And no I wasn’t under weight for my size.

You can find out the gender at 14 weeks now. There is a new test where they isolate cells from the baby out of a blood sample from the mother and run testing to check for any genetic abnormalities but they can also tell you with almost 100% certainty if it’s a boy or a girl. They took a blood sample from me at 12 weeks and we had the results 2 weeks later. So she isn’t necessarily past 20 weeks already.

These gorgeous models make pregnancy look so good! She looks amazing, and her hair is incredible! I’m wondering if there are extensions in, or if that is all her REAL HAIR!? Lucky lady!

Narcissist. Look at her preening into her phone. And why do women assume the whole world wants to look at their pregnant belly? Nothing private anymore.

I am a Carolyn too, but have a completely different and more accurate opinion of Marisa. She is the furthest thing from Narcissistic. She is truly a beautiful person and Mother, who shared her 1st pregnancy with her fans through People Mag. (Thank you People), and is doing so again, because there are people that do care about this wonderful, beautiful girl, inside and out. Take good care M. Glad Gavin will have a buddy, but with three girls in your family, you’ll have to have a girl one day😉 Love you xoxos
