Shiri Appleby Says Having a Boy Is Definitely Different Than Having a Girl: ‘It’s Much More Energy!’

07/14/2016 at 01:45 PM ET

Right after Shiri Appleby gave birth to her son Owen Lee in December, she didn’t really notice many differences between her son and her daughter Natalie Bouader, 3.

“The first few months, everyone was like, ‘Isn’t it so different?’ And I didn’t really understand,” Appleby, 37, told PEOPLE while celebrating Under Armour‘s debut of the UA Crossback Bra in West Hollywood, California, on Tuesday. “Then we just vacationed with some friends of ours that have a baby girl the same age, and she’s dainty and sits, and he’s really active. It’s much more energy!”

Six-month-old Owen, whom Appleby describes as a “very happy child,” has already hit a major milestone.

“We’re teething and eating solids,” she says. “Big things!”

Shiri Appleby‘s second pregnancy has been smooth sailing.

With the actress’ show UnREAL renewed for a second season — she plays a reality TV producer on the Lifetime hit — the mom-to-be has plenty on her plate to keep her distracted.

“It’s not as nerve-racking,” she told PEOPLE at Favored.By Presents the 4th Annual Red CARpet Safety Awareness Event on Saturday in Los Angeles.

Appleby, 36, is expecting her second child with her fiancé, restaurateur Jon Shook, “at the end of the year.”

Appleby and Shook are already parents to daughter Natalie Bouader, 2½.

“I’ve done it before. You’re not sitting around thinking about the fact that there’s a baby because there’s already a baby to be entertaining and playing with. So it’s been actually fairly easy,” she explains.

At 10 months old, Shiri Appleby‘s daughter Natalie Bouader is already a bonafide foodie.

But that’s no surprise considering the baby girl’s father is Jon Shook, eclectic chef and owner of Los Angeles eatery, Animal.

“She eats everything, as you can imagine,” the Girls actress, 35, told PEOPLE at the Barneys New York cocktail party celebrating designer Irene Neuwirth on Tuesday.

“If she’s sitting at the table eating her baby food, but you have your own food, she goes ‘Eee! Eee!’ until you give her what you’re eating!”

All that food tasting may explain how Natalie has already developed a palate that would put most adults to shame.

Dressing for the part has never been so fun for actress Shiri Appleby.

Since welcoming daughter Natalie Bouader in March, the new mom has been relying on her reoccurring out of the day while still trying to maintain her feminine flair.

“When I’m on mommy duty, I relish wearing sneakers and jeans, which I’ve always done,” Appleby, 34, told PEOPLE Thursday during P.S. ARTS Bag Lunch event at the Los Angeles home of Meredith Kaplan.

“But at the same time you want to feel cute and playful for your daughter. You want her to remember what you look like — to have this ethereal look.”
