It’ll be a little princess for the Hermers.

The baby Ladies of Londons Marissa Hermer is expecting with husband Matt Hermer in May is a girl, she reveals to PEOPLE exclusively.

“Matt and I were totally shocked when the doctor told us we were having a girl — I just assumed we would have another boy so was planning out little Hermer football team,” she said.

“Now every time we go back for a scan, we ask if she can please check again as we still can’t really believe it. But looks like we will be adding a little princess to our brood!”

The reality star announced her pregnancy in December with an adorable family photo on Instagram, in which she shows off her baby bump with her husband as their two sons — Max and Jake — stand at their feet.

“New addition to our #HermerFamily,” she captioned the photo.

So, how do the little ones feel about bringing home a sister in just a few months?

They’re not exactly excited just yet.

“When we first told our boys that they were going to have a sister, they said, ‘YUCK! We want a BOY! Girls are gross!'” Hermer jokes to PEOPLE. “The boys have loved helping decorate the nursery — or rather, turning her basinet into a pirate ship and pretending her new pink lampshades are pirate hats.”

Well, that’s one way to get acquainted with baby girl Hermer.

This woman is so pretentious and such a suck up, it is hard to watch her.

She tries WAY to hard to be British and projects this perfect life, which comes across as disingenuous. If you’re from the U.S., it’s NOTHING to be ashamed of. I expect she will name her daughter something British such as Charlotte.
