Lydia McLaughlin has another bun in the oven!

The former Real Housewives of Orange County star announced that she's pregnant with her third child today, E! News confirms. The reality star is due in November, and the little bundle of joy will join her and husband Doug's two sons Stirling, 5, and Maverick, 3.

"We are beyond excited about being pregnant with our third child," Lydia tells us. "We have always wanted 3 kids, so our family is starting to feel complete."

In November, after just one season on the smash Bravo hit, McLaughlin revealed that she wouldn't be returning for the reality series' ninth season.  

The Canadian native said that her departure from the show is "bittersweet" but she's ready to move on to the next chapter in her lavish life. "I compare it to breaking up with a boyfriend you know you're not going to end up with—it's hard, but overall you know you're doing the right thing," McLaughlin told Us Weekly.

Although she was "really flattered" that the producers asked her to stay on the series, McLaughlin says that she wants to focus on other business opportunities. "I want to build my brand outside of the Housewives."

Additionally, McLaughlin shared that she was trying to have another baby and didn't want that to be her storyline on the show.

Looks like her wish came true! Congrats to the family!

Us Weekly was first to report the story.
