With two daughters already in the familial mix, Maya Rudolph isn’t sweating the sex of her latest baby on the way.

“I have an equal opportunity womb!” the Bridesmaids star, 38, tells PEOPLE with a laugh. “‘Womb for all’ is the sign that I hang on my belly. I don’t make preferences, so whatever is coming my way is cool.”

Having previously chosen to be surprised at the delivery, Rudolph insists that — whether it’s a boy or a girl — the latest addition to her and director Paul Thomas Anderson‘s family is already the perfect fit, despite the fact that their arrival tilts the balance of power away from the parents and into her kids’ hands.

“I feel very lucky just to have the opportunity to be completely outnumbered,” Ruldolph said while attending the Milk and Bookies Story Time Celebration in Los Angeles.

“Right now we have a very girl-oriented household, and it’s awesome. But the idea of adding another one is lovely, and the idea of somebody new to the family is really cool and exciting as well. As a parent, I’ll take what I can get.”

Pink or blue, the latest addition to the Rudolph-Anderson family will have to contend with the fully-formed personalities of sisters Pearl, 5, and Lucille, 16 months, who seem to be taking on the respective roles of director and impressionist.

“[Lucille] is like a parrot,” Rudolph says, “Which is really funny when you have a daughter who is four years older. Pearl, very sweetly, asks her to say stuff. For example, on the car ride over here she was asking Lucille to say ‘Achoo,’ and my baby kept going, ‘Aaachoo, Aaachoo!’ It was really adorable.”
