Draya Michele and Orlando Scandrick are having a baby!

The Mint Swim owner and the star defensive back for the Dallas Cowboys are expecting a baby boy in late April. Draya broke the news to PEOPLE magazine:

“I’m not sure what made me decide to take a home pregnancy test, but I decided on taking two at the same time!” Michele, 30, tells PEOPLE. “They were both positive and I was instantly excited.”

Draya said they found out the sex of the baby early.

“We made an appointment to see the sex of the baby for 16 weeks, but surprisingly at 12 weeks, our doctor was able to see that he was a boy,” she explains. “Technology and ultrasound machines are much more advanced then 13 years ago when I had my first child.”

Draya’s son is 13-year-old Kniko, and Orlando has 6-year-old twin daughters, Taylor and Tatiana. This is the couple’s first child together.

The Will To Love actress says she wasn’t suffering from morning sickness for too long and now she’s focused on staying in good shape.

“I wasn’t sick for longer than three weeks and I’ve been dieting and keeping up with cardio to keep my weight down,” she shares. “I really enjoy nap time since I’m still working full time.”

Congrats to Draya and Orlando on the good news.
