Kendra Wilkinson and NFL player Hank Baskett will soon be the proud parents of son, the reality star revealed Wednesday.

"I just left the doctor's office and I couldn’t wait another minute to tell you guys … Hank and I are having a baby boy !!!!!!!!!!!!" Wilkinson, 24, writes on her blog. "When the doctor told me I was just like OH MY GOD, I'm going to have a son!!!!! Today is certainly always going to be one of the most memorable days of my life!"

The star, who married Baskett, 26, a wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles, in June, already has an idea of her first born's personality.

"Whether this little guy is a jock or not, he's definitely going to be a mama's boy," she says. "And there's no doubt he's gonna be a handsome one … just look at his dad!"

The San Diego-born Wilkinson "can't wait" to start decorating the nursery and stocking the baby's closet "full of teeny tiny Eagles jerseys (and Chargers ones to hahahaha)" – but she's already gotten a head start on baby shopping.

The newlyweds dropped by a VIP reception last month at West Hollywood baby boutique Bel Bambini benefiting the Healthy Child Healthy World organization. They browsed though baby bottles, baby blue onesies and high-tech strollers.

"I'm definitely going to be very strict [as a mom]," she told PEOPLE at the event. "I actually grew up around a lot of bad, so it's going to be easy for me to detect what's bad. I'm such a protector."

The couple's baby is due on Christmas Day.
