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?'”

Poppy Montgomery certainly followed family tradition when she welcomed daughter Violet Grace in April, but the actress admits it was a complete accident.

Despite joining a long line of flower names — Montgomery’s sisters are Rosie Thorn, Daisy YellowMarigold Sun and Lily Belle — the baby girl was actually named for her paternal grandmother.

“I didn’t realize Violet was a flower when I named her. It was so odd!” the Unforgettable star said during a recent appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. “It’s my boyfriend [Shawn Sanford]’s grandmother’s name and I was like, ‘Violet! I like Violet.'”

But, shortly after deciding on her daughter’s name, Montgomery’s mom celebrated the unexpected news.

Poppy Montgomery was waiting for the April showers to bring her May flowers — until life started to bloom a little early.

Two weeks ahead of her due date, the actress welcomed her daughter Violet Grace following a c-section.

“That was hard for me because I don’t think anyone wants to have a c-section,” Montgomery tells Sweden with Love.

“It’s major surgery and it was scary for me. But everything went well and at the end, what matters is that the baby is healthy and that you’re both doing great.”

There was little time to revel in the baby bliss following Violet’s birth; Montgomery returned to work on Unforgettable, which premieres July 28, only two weeks after baby girl’s arrival.
