The American Housewife star shared her exciting news on Access Hollywood Live Wednesday, revealing that her and her fiancé’s second child on the way will be a daughter.
“I am pregnant with our second baby! And it is a baby girl,” she said, receiving a sweet gift of pink flowers and balloons from the crew.
The announcement comes just six months after Mixon, 36, and Greer, 41, welcomed their first child: son Kingston Saint, who was born on May 19. “This happened just the quickest … situation ever,” Mixon admits.

The way the actress found out she was expecting again so soon had to do with breastfeeding. “I was nursing, and the breast milk dried up,” she explains. “So it happened to be the situation that I’m pregnant again.”
“[I] couldn’t be more shocked,” Mixon says. “Didn’t know it was possible. But me and my fiancé, we are welcoming it, and she is due May 23.”

Greer — a retired track-and-field athlete who holds the current American record in the javelin throw — is over the moon about the soon-to-arrive new addition.
“He’s thrilled. He’s beside himself,” says Mixon, adding of her prediction for their son‘s reaction to his little sister, “I’m believing that he’s going to embrace it. He’s almost about to crawl … he’ll have just turned 1 on May 19, so he’s got time. He’s gonna just be the best big brother ever.”
