Daphne Oz Introduces Son Jovan Jr.: ‘He’s My Little Social Bug’

02/25/2016 at 01:15 PM ET

At 4 months old, Daphne Ozs son Jovan Jr. is already obsessed with his big sister Philomena Bijou.

“He knows when she’s in the room and when she’s not in the room,” Oz tells PEOPLE exclusively. “If she’s running around doing her own thing, making lots of noise and playing, he just is obsessed and mesmerized. So I’m excited. He’s my little social bug.”

And Philo — who turns 2 on Friday — reciprocates the feeling.

“She didn’t care that much about dolls before he was born, but now her baby doll goes with her everywhere,” says The Chew co-host, 30. “She nurses the doll. She changes diapers 50 times a day. That doll has a dirty diaper every five minutes. She’s really attuned to the needs of babies and also I think she’s learning how to be patient now.”

He’s here!

Daphne Oz is a new mama after welcoming a son, her second child with husband John Jovanovic, on Wednesday, Oct. 21, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The family’s new addition — who weighed in at 8 lbs, 6 oz., and measured 21 inches long — joins 20-month-old big sister Philomena Bijou.

“Daphne and I feel extremely blessed with our new addition to the family and Philomena is excited to bring her little brother home,” Jovanovic says in a statement.

On Wednesday, Oz revealed her baby boy’s name in an exclusive clip on The Chew. “We have named our son Jovan Jovanovic Jr. — my husband is Serbian and we named him after his daddy,” she explained. “We’re calling him John-John.”

She adds, “I’m officially a week in to being a mother of two which is still totally crazy to me to say. It’s been a wild week — it’s been so much fun and totally exhausting. Everyone’s so in love — Philo especially, she thinks he’s all hers. She’s just constantly trying to kiss him, but she’s 20 months old so her kisses are verging on assault at this point so we gotta be careful. She loves him so much, which I’m really happy about — I was really nervous about the adjustment with the two of them. It’s been a lot of me lying around being a human pacifier.”

Daphne Oz: Not Bouncing Back After Baby Was a Shock

10/27/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

When Daphne Oz brought her daughter home from the hospital in February, she also brought along a very unexpected addition: her baby belly.

In the November/December issue of Fitness magazine, the new mom to Philomena Bijou admits what surprised her most about motherhood was her body after baby.

“You still look six months pregnant,” Oz, 28, says. “Your body does not instantly bounce back.”

And the surprises weren’t over. When Oz — who doesn’t own a scale — went for a postpartum check up, she was in for a second shock.

“I thought I knew where I’d be when I went for my first doctor appointment a few weeks after giving birth. I’d lost only 10 pounds!” she recalls.

Daphne Oz: Why Breastfeeding Is a ‘Luxury’

09/15/2014 at 06:00 PM ET

Chew on this: Daphne Oz is a believer in love at first sight.

From the moment the TV host and her husband John Jovanovic welcomed their first child, Philomena Bijou, in February, the new mom was completely head over heels for her daughter.

“For me, it was like getting a first-hand glimpse of what love at first sight is really like,” Oz says in an interview with Bravado Designs.

“It’s something that I think no one can really explain to you until you have a baby of your own and you feel that immense love for someone you don’t even know.”

Strengthening the bond between Oz and her now 6-month-old was her choice to breastfeed, a decision the new mom says gives her the “peace of mind of knowing that it is the best first choice of food for your baby.”

Daphne Oz: Motherhood Is ‘So Much Harder Than I Imagined’

08/12/2014 at 03:45 PM ET

New mom Daphne Oz has already learned a valuable lesson in parenting: practice does not make perfect.

“It is so much harder than I imagined! You just care so much, and want everything to be perfect,” the TV host, 28, says in the latest issue of The Bump.

“Even though you know it never can be, you keep trying your best. It’s never enough!”

Oz, who welcomed daughter Philomena Bijou in February, admits all the books in the world couldn’t completely prepare her for life with her baby girl.

“I think the biggest change and challenge for me was coming to terms with the fact that being a good mom is not something you can read up on or learn from a distance,” she says. “You have to jump in headfirst and get your hands dirty.”
