Congratulations to Eric Trump and Lara Trump.
The Apprentice alum, 33, and his wife, 33, are expecting their first child – a boy – this September, he announced via Instagram.
“.@LaraLeaTrump & I are excited to announce that we are adding a boy to #TeamTrump in September. It’s been an amazing year. We are blessed!,” he captioned the image kissing his wife.
“We found out on my birthday, which was pretty cool,” the father-to-be tells PEOPLE.
The mom-to-be, a former Inside Edition producer who is now involved with multiple animal charities, is in her second trimester.
“I was exhausted in the beginning,” Lara admits. “It surprised me, because I’m a very active person, and until the fatigue hit, I didn’t believe it would actually happen to me. It really affected me. But I’m feeling really good now.”
They are discussing a name for baby, who will be President Trump’s ninth grandchild. (Eric’s brother Donald Jr. has five children with his wife Vanessa; sister Ivanka has three with husband Jared Kushner.)
“We really loved the name Charlie, but we’d already named our dog that, so it’s out,” Eric shares.
Lara admits, “I knew I always wanted kids someday.”
And she knows her hubby will be a great father. “Eric’s going to be an amazing dad,” she says. “The nieces and nephews love hanging with him. He’s the cool uncle. He’s watched Frozen many times.”
The couple – who were wed at Mar-A-Lago in 2014 – admit their news was hard to keep secret.
“Eric’s dad was so excited,” says Lara, “that we were worried he’d blurt it out at a press conference.”
