Marissa Hermer is pregnant with baby No.3, but it's going to be a whole new experience this time around. That's because the Ladies of London restaurateur is having a baby girl, a first for her and husband Matt Hermer, Marissa revealed exclusively to PEOPLE Friday.
“Matt and I were totally shocked when the doctor told us we were having a girl — I just assumed we would have another boy so was planning out little Hermer football team,” she told PEOPLE. "Now every time we go back for a scan, we ask if she can please check again as we still can’t really believe it. But looks like we will be adding a little princess to our brood!”
Currently, the Hermer household is one full of boys with Marissa and Matt's sons Max and Jake already in tow. Naturally, Marissa had been hoping to have a girl one day, but after experiencing some complications with this pregnancy due to placenta acreta, which occurs when the placenta attaches itself too deeply and firmly within the uterine wall, her main wish was that the baby was born healthy.
Marissa Hermer was glowing at the London premiere of Zoolander 2 at Empire Leicester Square on February 4, 2016.
"I think at one point I probably would have been disappointed if it wasn't a girl. And now, I'm so thankful that I'm actually still pregnant. And if I can have a baby on the other end now, I really, truly feel if he or she comes out and is happy and healthy, then I've made it. So I don't care anymore. I really don't," Marissa told The Daily Dish in February. "If we can have a healthy baby, then I'll be very happy."
Now that they know they'll soon be welcoming a girl, the Hermers are busy getting ready to bring home baby. "It's a GIRL!" Marissa announced on Instagram Saturday. "Decorating the nursery for their baby SISTER - the boys have decided that her basinet makes a great Pirate Ship and her pink lampshades are Captain Hook hats."
Marissa and Matt's baby is due in late May, she told The Daily Dish. We can only imagine the Hermers' "little princess" is going to look as adorable as Marissa did as a baby. Check out some of her throwback pics, below.
