This year, Sara Haines will have to put up another last-minute Christmas stocking.

“The View” co-host gave birth to her second child on Saturday.

Haines posted a photo with her husband Max Shifrin and their newborn Sandra Grace, named after Haines’ mother.

“She weighed in at a cool 7 pounds, 2 ounces. We can't decide who she looks like, but we'll keep her anyway,” the former TODAY correspondent wrote about their “little Christmas package.”

Just a little toe nibble to start your Wednesday off right. @maxshifrin

Haines, who also has a 21-month-old son, Alec, said earlier this year on the ABC talk show that she’s excited about adding a girl to her family.

"I'm very much looking forward to it,” she said. “I have a brother but I had two sisters. I just feel like I get the female experience way more than the little boy experience."
