Little Women: Atlanta star Andrea Salinas will welcome a baby in the new year with her boyfriend Chris Fernandez, PEOPLE exclusively reports

Little Women: Atlanta‘s Andrea Salinas is heading into the holiday season with some sweet news — the reality star is expecting her third baby next year with her boyfriend Chris Fernandez.

“Chris and I are so excited to be pregnant again! Andre and Aubrey are the loves of our lives and will be the best siblings to baby No. 3,” Salinas, 24, tells PEOPLE exclusively in a statement. “We can’t wait to find out the gender and are even more anxious to hold him/her.”

Salinas and Fernandez’s tumultuous relationship has been documented on Lifetime’s hit show for several seasons.


While she and her twin sister Amanda — known as the Tiny Twins — are fan favorites, the sisters often fight over Salinas’ relationship with Fernandez, 25, whom Amanda does not approve of.

The reality star broke the baby news to her friends and family at a party captured on cameras for the new season of Little Women: Atlanta (see the exclusive sneak peek above), and not all of her loved ones are happy.

“I’m glad the girls are glad for Chris and I, but just as I thought, my parents don’t look happy,” Salinas — whose son Andre is 3 and daughter Aubrey is 1 — tells the camera in an interview.

“Here you go again. I don’t know whether to congratulate you or to be sad, Andrea,” her mother tells her at the bash.

A Thanksgiving special of Little Women: Atlanta airs tonight at 10 p.m. ET after Little Women: Dallas on Lifetime, and the fourth season of Little Women: Atlanta premieres Wednesday, Dec. 13 at 9 p.m. ET.
