24 actress Sarah Wynter, who is expecting a baby boy this winter, says she can’t wait to get to know her son.

“We are so excited to meet our new baby,” Wynter tells PEOPLE. “I want to meet the little person who has been throwing a party in my belly all these months.”

The baby will be the first for the actress and her husband, Details editor-in-chief Dan Peres, who wed in Australia in Aug. 2005.

Wynter is celebrating the pending birth with her second baby shower in New York this weekend. “This baby already has so much love – and lots of insanely generous gifts,” according to Wynter, who says she received an enormous gift basket from her friends, Steve Sadove, the CEO of Saks Fifth Avenue, and his wife. “It actually doesn’t fit through the door of the nursery!”

Three weeks ago, Wynter had a West Coast baby shower at the Brentwood, Calif. home of her friend, actress Shiva Rose, where she was given goodies like a Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag and outfits from Janie & Jack.
