Poppy Montgomery‘s popping out — and she’s ready to share why.

The Unforgettable star and husband Shawn Sanford are expecting their second child together — a boy! — this fall, she tells PEOPLE. The actress is already six months pregnant and glad the cat’s finally out the bag.

“I’m so happy. I’m hoping to get all of the privileges now of a real pregnant person,” jokes Montgomery, who broke the news at a taping of ABC’s The View, airing Friday, then revealed the sex on Thursday’s episode of Late Night with David Letterman. “I want to be respected and given lots of royal treatment.”

She also wants to set the record straight. “I haven’t told anyone yet, so people just think I have enormous boobs,” she says. “I was like ‘I wonder if they think I went and got a boob job?'”

06/23/2014 at 02:15 PM ET

David Tutera makes his living as an event planner, but he’s never had such an important client — his daughter.

“I’ve done events for celebrities and royalty around the world, and I just told my staff, ‘This is the most important event that I’ve ever had to host in my life,'” Tutera tells PEOPLE of putting together his daughter Cielo‘s first birthday party.

“I had a responsibility to make sure that it was unique, child-like and playful,” he says.

When choosing a theme for the special occasion, Tutera relied on his observations of his young daughter’s current obsessions: bubbles and bunnies.

“As a parent, you pay attention to what your child loves,” Tutera says of deciding on an Alice in Wonderland theme for the Sunday-afternoon fête, which was held in the backyard of his new, Los Angeles-area home. “It was a tea party, which is always great for adults and children.”
