Ashley Graham is having a boy!

The 32-year-old supermodel revealed her baby on the way’s sex for the first time during her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Thursday.

The soon-to-be first-time mother (who is expecting her first child with husband Justin Ervin in January) sat down with Ellen DeGeneres for a version of “Lightning Round” — a game that Graham plays on her podcast, Pretty Big Deal — when she dropped the big news.

While Graham is usually the one asking questions during the game, DeGeneres switched things up and put her guest in the hot seat. And while she didn’t address the model’s pregnancy in the first few rounds — starting with silly questions like, “Besides your husband, who do you have a crush on?” and “Most embarrassing wardrobe malfunction?” — in the final seconds, DeGeneres asked slyly, “Are you having a boy or a girl?”

“I’m having a boy!” Graham screamed, nearly jumping out of her seat. “I’m gonna be a mommy to a boy!”

Since making the announcement, Graham has been candid about her pregnancy, sharing plenty of relatable moments on her socials including everything from stretch marks to food cravings.

She’s also not afraid to embrace her belly, and has been sharing how she’s keeping in shape during the pregnancy — including beating Olympic athlete Lindsey Vonn on an indoor SkiErg during a joint workout.

“That’s right, I beat Lindsey Vonn on the ski erg TWICE. But she still beat me at literally everything else,” she said with a laugh in a video of the workout. “You’re still the pro athlete, Lindsey!”
