There’s a bootie-ful baby boy on the way!

While stepping in as a guest co-host for The View on Wednesday, mom-to-be Soleil Moon Frye brought a big surprise to the table: the reveal of the sex of her third child.

With all eyes on host Jenny McCarthy, viewers watched as she unwrapped a tiny package and showed off the pair of pastel blue baby shoes nestled inside.

“I’m in a little bit of denial,” Frye, 37, admits. “I can’t imagine a penis growing inside of me, so I keep saying, ‘I think we know … but I’m not sure.’ I was so shocked because I always thought that if you have two of one sex, the statistics are that you’ll have a third of the same sex. So I just thought we’d have three girls. My girls still don’t completely believe it.”

The actress and her husband Jason Goldberg — already parents to daughters Jagger Joseph Blue, 5½, and Poet Sienna Rose, 8 — will welcome their son in mid-February.

“The first couple of times I was so prepared. Now I’m like, ‘Nursery? What nursery? The baby can sleep in our room, right?’ I’ve got to get clothes … We’ve got a million names — I need to get on it,” the Let’s Get This Party Started author recently told PEOPLE.
