Teen Mom star Bookout just announced that she's expecting her third baby, less than a year after her second was born. And now, in a new interview with Us Weekly, she's revealing the majorly surprising way she learned she had another bun in the oven.

"I was at the doctor, ironically, to get my birth control prescription refilled," Bookout, who now works as a social media consultant, explained. The surprise came only two days after Bookout agreed to marry her longtime boyfriend Taylor McKinney, who proposed on Jan. 19.

Bookout is already mom to 7-year-old Bentley, whose birth was featured on the MTV reality show, as well as 8-month-old daughter Jayde, who she shares with McKinney. The new baby, she revealed, is due May 30, which is only a day after Jayde's first birthday.

"It’s very possible we’ll have two under the age of 1," Bookout said, joking, "They’ll definitely be Irish twins!"

Bookout is expecting another little boy this time, and she says big brother Bentley is definitely looking forward to the new addition.

"He’s really excited to have a little brother," she said. "But he thinks it’s hilarious that Jayde’s going to be a big sister because she’s so little!"

Bookout also revealed that this will definitely be her final pregnancy.

"There are going to be some permanent birth control decisions made immediately after the birth," she said. "But it’s definitely a bonus to have it kind of done and out of the way. It’s done and we’re good to go!"

Good thing she's enjoying this pregnancy — she said McKinney has been spoiling her.

"It’s even better when I have pregnancy to use as my defense," she said. "It’s like, ‘I need to sleep in today because I’m building a baby!’ He can’t really say anything to that!"
