When it comes to her growing family, baby number two is twice as nice for Kristin Cavallari.

“It’s a lot easier in the sense that you know what to do and expect, so you have a lot more confidence,” the Fabulist host, 27, tells Michigan Avenue magazine.

Even deciding on a name for now 3-month-old Jaxon Wyatt was a breeze. Cavallari admits she and husband Jay Cutler skipped the entire name game with their second son after seeing his moniker in a magazine when she was pregnant with her firstborn, 2-year-old Camden Jack.

“We had already picked out a name, so we just held onto it,” she says. “We decided if we had another boy, that’s what we would name him.”

Despite the smooth start to double duty parenting, the new mom admits she’s still getting used to raising two boys.

“You have zero time to yourself now. Camden takes a nap at one o’clock, so when Camden’s going down, Jax is just waking up to eat and play, so there’s literally no time,” she explains.

“But it’s amaz­ing and really sweet seeing Camden love being a big brother. Plus, you’re definitely more relaxed with the second one because you’re not stressed out by questioning everything that you’re doing.”

As far as expanding her family even more in the future? Cavallari may consider downsizing her original plan.

“Before we had children, Jay and I both wanted four, and now we’re thinking three, but we’re just going to have to see how it goes. Right now the last thing on my mind is having another baby, but it is a ton of fun,” she shares.

When the couple decides it’s time to add more members to their brood, the reality star turned designer knows Cutler, a quarterback for the Chicago Bears, will be onboard.

“Jay is a great dad. He’s incredibly hands-on, and he has been since day one,” she says. “It’s so sweet seeing him with Camden and Jax, and there’s nothing sexier than seeing your husband as a great dad. I couldn’t ask for a better partner in this situation.”
