Just call it beautiful chaos!

CNN anchor Poppy Harlow is pregnant with her second child, a son, her rep confirms exclusively to PEOPLE.

The baby boy is due this winter and joins big sister Sienna, Harlow’s first child with husband Sinisa Babcic.

“Our 17-month-old daughter Sienna isn’t keeping us busy enough so we thought we’d give her a baby brother,” Harlow, 35, jokes to PEOPLE exclusively, adding, “Being parents has been the greatest joy and we are thrilled our family is growing!”

The happy family posed together on the steps outside of Babcic’s aunt and uncle’s house in Izola, Slovenia, to mark the occasion. The photo moment has become a bit of a tradition, Harlow says: She and Babcic took their first picture on the steps the year they met in 2005.

The couple revisited the steps for a picture again the year they were engaged, again the day they were married in 2012 and once more while Harlow was pregnant with Sienna. “And now as I am pregnant with our son,” Harlow says.

Earlier this year, Harlow opened up about being a working mom in an essay for LinkedIn, admitting “Some days are really hard.”

“Some days are easier than others,” she continued. “But every day is a blessing – and realizing that has been incredibly important. Equally important has been the realization that being a working parent is messy.”

Harlow added, “My kid and family come first. Then work. Then life. Then laundry and dinner. Life is a little messier – but it is messy in the best way.”
