Myka Stauffer is seeing blue!

The popular YouTuber and lifestyle influencer, 31, enlisted the help of her four kids (daughters Jaka, 5, and Nakova, 7, plus sons Huxley and Radley, 3) to help her and husband James reveal that their little one on the way is a boy.

The youngsters — dressed in white and navy blue to match their mama — are wearing huge smiles as they are surrounded by blue confetti in the adorable photos, shared exclusively with PEOPLE.

“We were not 100 percent confident we wanted to find out,” says Myka of herself and her husband, 33, learning the sex of the baby. “We were at an early ultrasound and the tech said she knew the gender right away.”

“So [I had her] tell me and not my husband, so I could surprise him privately,” she adds to PEOPLE.

Needless to say, Myka was shocked when she found out her children would be getting a baby brother since she was “positive it was a girl” initially.

“I already went out and bought girl clothes and girl accessories. And had dreams about having a baby girl,” she admits to PEOPLE.

And although her “kids were super excited” about their new sibling’s sex, they were “surprised” because, like their mom, they thought the baby would be a girl.

“My oldest daughter was slightly upset at first. She really wanted a baby sister,” Myka reveals of Nakova, whom she calls Kova.

And does the baby boy on the way have a name yet? “We already have a name that we are going to wait to release until birth,” Myka says.

In a December vlog, the soon-to-be mother of five might have hinted about her son’s name, sharing some of her favorite unique monikers.

A few of Myka’s boy picks? Axel, Alden, Rafferty and Bridger — the latter of which she saw on Instagram and fell in love with immediately.

“I read it and I was like, ‘That’s actually really cool, I’ve never heard a kiddo named that,’ ” she recalled. “Bridger Griffin Stauffer. I don’t know. Is that not cute? Come on, that’s super, super cute.”
