“It’s been this wonderful thing, this time around, getting to see our older children get so excited about welcoming a new sibling,” she told Page Six at HealthCorps’ 13th Annual Gala hosted by her parents, Dr. Mehmet Oz and Lisa Oz, on Tuesday, April 16.
The 33-year-old beauty dished that the kiddos — Philomena, 5, Jovan, 3, and Domenica, 1 — are so fascinated with their future little brother or sister, that they “think they have babies in their bellies,” too! “They’re making all kinds of plans,” Daphne explained. “Lots of questions are happening.” So cute!
The Dorm Room Diet author announced that she and her husband, John Jovanovic, were expecting another little one during her own segment on The Dr. Oz Show in March. “We’re really excited, it’s so much fun for us to think about,” she gushed to the audience. “Not just now but because this is a very fleeting precious moment, but thinking about all the years to come and the dynamic that will continue to blossom between the four of them will be amazing.”
Daphne added that, although she and John — who tied the knot in a romantic New York City ceremony in 2010 — couldn’t be happier about expanding their brood, they fully acknowledge that their lives are going to get a little hectic. “We’re glossing it a little bit, I think it’s gonna be really crazy,” the lifestyle guru admitted. “I think we’re getting ready to buckle down and stay home and just be together as a unit because it’s unwieldy to travel with six people.”
One thing that won’t change between her and John, though, is how strong their bond and marriage is. “I think we try to counterbalance really intensive family time with just time for the two of us,” John, 32, shared with Us Weekly alongside Daphne at the gala, explaining how they keep their romance alive amid raising three tiny tots. “Having parents who are happy really makes for a happy bond with the children. We sync great.”
We can’t wait for Daphne and John’s little bundle of joy to arrive!
