Daphne Oz is thinking pink!
The fourth-time mom-to-be is expecting a daughter, she announces exclusively with PEOPLE, sharing photos of the inside of a sex-reveal lasagna she cut into alongside her dad, Dr. Mehmet Oz, which contained pink-dyed cheese.
“I’m super pumped about this because I have done gender reveals a number of ways,” Daphne, 33, said in a teaser clip from The Dish on Oz, where the big news went down courtesy of the dish by Villa Italian Kitchen.
“I have never yet seen a gender reveal done this way, for myself,” she added. “But this is kind of a big deal — they put this ridiculous cheesy twist on lasagna. So inside this lasagna … is either blue or pink cheesy layers. That’s how you figure out what you’re having.”

Last summer, Daphne opened up about her desire for more children in the future. For MINI magazine’s summer 2018 cover story, the cookbook author posed with her kids and revealed that she was “for sure” open to having more.
Still, she was living in the moment and wasn’t necessarily in a hurry to expand her family.
“I love it,” she said of motherhood. “I think that there’s a part of me that worries that I will just miss any version [of my children]. These kids are all so different. They come out with these little personalities totally intact, and there are all these iterations of what you can create, so I want to see some more versions.”
“But I’m also not in a rush,” Daphne insisted to the magazine. “I want to enjoy it. I want my kids to enjoy their little moment in the sun too.”
