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.

When it came time to celebrating the impending arrival of her second child — and first son! — DeAnna Pappas Stagliano knew exactly how she wanted to do it.

Says Pappas Stagliano, who is due at the end of the month: “She’s grasping a lot more now. I think it’s starting to feel real. She’s starting to get that there is somebody coming!”
