DeAnna Pappas Stagliano got her wish: She’s pregnant!

The former Bachelorette and her husband Stephen Stagliano are expecting their second child — a sibling for daughter Addison Marie — this winter, she tells PEOPLE exclusively. On Friday, the Clean Kids Naturally by Gabriel Cosmetic spokeswoman revealed on their Instagram that baby on the way is a boy.

“Stephen and I are thrilled to be expanding our family!” the mom-to-be, who is due on Feb. 26, says.

“We have wanted more kids for a while now and are so blessed that we are pregnant again.”

Pappas Stagliano, who wears a gifted POSH Mommy necklace in these photos, is most excited about her 18-month-old baby girl‘s newest role as big sister.

“We cannot wait to give Addison a little brother or sister,” the former reality star, who will welcome the new addition days after her daughter’s second birthday, shares. “She is such a lover and will be so good with another baby.”

She’s been open about wanting to expand her family with Stagliano, whom she wed in October 2011.

“We definitely want more children and we are definitely trying to conceive again now,” Pappas Stagliano told PEOPLE in May.

US Weekly has started posting “stories” that are just sponsored content, but at least it says that on the news feed on the left hand side of the home page. People just tries to sneak it in. We aren’t stupid, People!

So there is this show called Person of Interest where people are spied upon by a computer, which sorts them and identifies them as “Relevant” or “Not relevant.” I wish People would get such a machine. Because when the machine would land on this chick, it would bleat “NOT RELEVANT” immediately. And then they could report on someone who people care about.

Congrats on the pregnancy! But she’s been wanting more children for “awhile now” and she can “finally” share the happy news she’s expecting again and her daughter will have a sibling. Lady, your daughter is 18 months old. Relax!!!!!

Congrats!! So happy to hear this news! Such a cute family. Would love to know where she got her top.

Eli, just because you and some others don’t care, doesn’t mean others do not.

Who cares? This chick is literally so basic and irrelevant. Run out of Duggar news?
