After weeks of speculation, Draya Michele finally confirmed that she is indeed pregnant! She is expecting a baby boy with her fiancé Orlando Scandrick.

I’m not sure what made me decide to take a home pregnancy test, but I decided on taking two at the same time!” Michele, 30, tells PEOPLE. “They were both positive and I was instantly excited.”

The happy couple is expecting their bouncing baby boy in April. Draya has a 13-year-old son named Kniko and Orlando has 6-year-old twin daughters.

Draya said her son is excited to be a big brother.

I just had to buckle down and tell him. I honestly felt really bad keeping it a secret from him so I made sure that he was one of the very first people that I told,” says Michele. “He’s excited to be a big brother and wants to teach him soccer.”

And don’t think pregnancy will slow Draya down.

I wasn’t sick for longer than three weeks and I’ve been dieting and keeping up with cardio to keep my weight down,” she shares. “I really enjoy nap time since I’m still working full time.”

Draya’s swimsuit line, Mint Swim, has been very successful and worn by numerous celebrities, including Cassie, Karrueche and Selena Gomez. She also has a few movies premiering and a television show in the works. Draya says, “I’m a very busy lady and I love taking my bump to work with me.”

Congrats Draya and Orlando! We can’t wait to see your little one!
