“Oh my God, I am so excited. We just had the baby shower and it was so beautiful, she looks great. I got her tutus,” the actress, 36, told PEOPLE at Saturday night’s TV Land Awards.
“But she has so much energy,” she added. “We’re really excited to have a girl come into the family because we have two boys. She’s going to be so spoiled. I can’t wait — it’s definitely giving me baby fever. I think, ‘Okay, maybe I can do this again.’ “
It wasn’t any one thing, she said, that let them know a girl was coming into the family. It was the lack of things.
Mowry-Housley “wasn’t as tired,” her twin tells PEOPLE. “She didn’t have morning sickness or the fatigue from having a boy. They say having a boy drains you and sucks everything out of you.”
Mowry-Hardrict said she can’t wait to be an aunt to a baby girl. At the same time …
“Girls are hard. They’re very hard,” she said. “I love my son. I hear the relationship between mommy and son is the best. Who knows? My husband wants a girl, he really does.”
If and when their family grows again, Mowry-Hardrict said she’ll have some new tricks to share from raising her 3½-year-old son Cree Taylor.
“I found this deer toy that poops out candy. And so if I say, ‘Cree, you have to go to bed right now, you will get a candy.’ We’ve named the pooping deer ‘Gus.’ … He gets a jelly bean. And it works,” she said. “Positive reinforcement is the way to go. I’m learning things like that which help me be a better parent.”
