Laila Ali is expecting: The former Dancing With the Stars contestant and American Gladiator host exclusively shares the news with PEOPLE in a video message.

“I am pregnant again! I’m three months, and I’m so excited, my family is excited,” says a beaming Ali. “I’m hoping it’s a girl this time!”

Due in early April 2011, this will be the second child together for Ali, 32, and husband Curtis Conway, 39, who married in July 2007. Their first child, son Curtis Jr. – whom they call C.J. – is 2.

Laila says her father, boxing legend Muhammad Ali, is excited about becoming a grandfather again.

“My dad is an excellent grandfather,” she says. “He loves kids. He loves to kiss them to death.”
