Five months after giving birth to her son Austin Michael, DeAnna Pappas Stagliano is back to having a super-fit post-baby body.

But her journey was far from easy, as the former Bachelorette says it was more of a challenge for her to bounce back after having her second child.

“I put on a few more pounds when I was pregnant with Austin than I did with [2½-year-old daughter] Addison,” she says. “The difference was I didn’t work out at all, really, the whole time I was pregnant with Austin, so I just felt like I was holding a lot of extra weight.”

Former Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas Stagliano is still getting accustomed to being a mom of two. And though she loves her new normal, she admits the journey hasn’t been easy since Austin Michael was born in March.

“Two kids is no joke. So anybody that has more than two,  I really admire,” Pappas Stagliano, who also shares 2½-year-old daughter Addison Marie with husband Stephen Stagliano, admitted to PEOPLE Thursday in Los Angeles at the 4Moms launch of the world’s first self-installing car seat.

“I look at Austin and I am like, ‘You are so cute, suckle on my boob, let’s have five more,’ ” Pappas Stagliano, 34, jokes. “And then Stephen is like, ‘No, we’re done.’ ”

“I’m like, ‘No, we’re done,’ ” Stagliano affirms.

DeAnna Pappas Stagliano Introduces Son Austin: Having a Boy Is a ‘Whole Different Ballgame’

04/06/2016 at 10:30 AM ET

She gave birth to her second child a month ago, and DeAnna Pappas Stagliano is still getting used to the, ahem, challenges of life with her first son, Austin Michael.

“The game of changing a boy’s diaper is very different,” the former Bachelorette star tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Girls is one fast swoop, boys — there are all these nooks and crannies. I get pooped on every day. It’s a whole different ballgame.”

Anatomy lessons aside, Pappas Stagliano, 34, and her business manager husband, 32, are coping just fine with their newly minted family of four.

“When we brought [2-year-old daughter] Addison home, Stephen and I were terrified,” says Pappas Stagliano. “This time, we have the same stressors and we’re still tired, but I feel like I have things way more under control. It’s a nice feeling.”

DeAnna Pappas Stagliano doesn’t need a rose ceremony to declare her new love.

The former Bachelorette and husband Stephen Stagliano have welcomed their second child, son Austin Michael Stagliano, she confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Weighing in at 7 lbs., 11 oz. and measuring 22 inches long, Austin arrived at 8:15 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1. He joins big sister Addison Marie, 2.

“His middle name is after Stephen’s twin brother – we wanted to honor him,” explains Pappas Stagliano. (Michael introduced the couple.) “I let Stephen choose the name. He really wanted both kids to have “A” names! Both of their initials will be ‘AMS.’ ”

She continues, “I pushed for three minutes and then was holding my sweet baby boy. I feel lucky to have had two beautiful deliveries thanks to fantastic nurses and my awesome doctor! I am doing well and feeling overjoyed.
