Controversial beauty queen Carrie Prejean has a bun in the oven.
"We are just so excited," the three-months-pregnant Prejean, 23, told FOX411.com on Wednesday. "I'm due in May on my grandmother's birthday. She recently passed away, so that's very special to us."
Prejean wed Oakland Raiders quarterback Kyle Boller in July.
She said they started trying for a family about a month after their big day.
"I'm trying to stay healthy, but it has been tough. I've been getting night sickness. We've started thinking about names, but we are keeping it to ourselves for right now. It has been fun looking at baby books."
They plan to find out the sex of their child next week.
Boller, 29, said he couldn’t be more thrilled for fatherhood.
"I have the most beautiful pregnant wife ever, we are so in love and this was just the best news when we found out a couple of weeks ago," Boller said.
Prejean made headlines last year when pageant judge Perez Hilton asked her if she supported gay marriage. "In my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman," she replied. "No offense to anybody there, but that's how I was raised and that's how I think it should be, between a man and a woman."

She later almost lost her crown when semi-nude photos of her began hitting the web, but Donald Trump, who owns the Miss USA and Miss Universe organizations, allowed her to keep her title because he said "the pictures taken were fine."
On June 10, however, Prejean was fired for violating her contract and "unwillingness to make appearances on behalf" of the organization, according to pageant officials.
But in an in interview with Access Hollywood, Prejean claimed otherwise: "None of this would be happening right now if I just said, 'Yeah, gays should get married. You're right, Perez Hilton.'"
