Gigi Gorgeous is getting closer to growing her family.

While speaking to PEOPLE at TheWrap's Power Women Summit, the YouTuber and LGBTQ advocate, 31, gave an update on her in vitro fertilization (IVF) journey with husband Nats Getty, saying that she feels like the "world is my oyster"

"The update on the IVF is that we have six embryos right now," Gigi tells PEOPLE. "There's four girls and two boys, which we're really excited about. It feels very surreal to say because just a year ago I wasn't gonna be able to give my sample and we weren't gonna be able to create any embryos."

"So now we have six and it's crazy, and we don't know when we're gonna have a kid yet, but we're really looking forward to it."

Noting that she "just got this bug" in her to have biological children, Gigi explains she didn't know how she'd accomplish that as she'd been on hormones for 10 years.

"I was like, okay, I've just got to bite the bullet and do it. Stop the hormones, start working out, live a healthier lifestyle. And the driving force was [that] I want my legacy to be passed on and also Nats'. Like I just want us to create biological children together and be able to do that, and I'm very goal-oriented."

The YouTuber also shares that her goals for 2024 don't just include welcoming a little one.

"Biggest goals next year, maybe a kid or two, I don't know. And I want to get killed in a horror movie."

In November, Gigi spoke with PEOPLE about her years-long fertility journey, saying that she and her husband were "over the moon" as they continued on their road to becoming parents. At the time, they'd received the exciting news that they had two viable embryos after completing one round of IVF.

Gigi, who has been open about her family planning journey on her YouTube channel, explained that the process of getting to where she and Nats were was both "scary" and difficult. Since she was on hormones for over 10 years, Gigi had to undergo a "complete lifestyle shift," which included stopping her hormones for a few years, committing to a fitness routine and no longer tucking.

"When I started my transition, I just immediately wanted to get on hormones. No one really talked to me about freezing what I had, my DNA for the future children that I wanted to have. I just really wasn't thinking about it. And it wasn't until I really got to know Nats and his values and just got together as a couple that we were like, 'We ultimately do want kids,'" she said.

"But I didn't think that it would be an option for me because I had been on hormones for so long. So maybe five years ago, I was like, 'Yeah, I definitely want to try to make this work and see what I can do.' "

"We really didn't know what to expect," Gigi said of the IVF process. "We were like, 'Okay, we're just going to give this our all. We're going to be there for each other, and if it doesn't ultimately work out, then we can at least say that we tried.' We just need to be able to lean on each other, we need to hold each other accountable for all of the appointments and just all of everything encompassing of what IVF is."

"It's a blessing, but it's so f----ing gnarly," added Nats of undergoing IVF. "In the space of two months, I'm on my second round, 12 to 14 days of at least three shots a day, so many vitamins and pills, and it's all super foreign to me because I've never taken a hormone in my life."

"It was just difficult, but I think that having the main goal, having children together is always the focus, so we can overcome anything. And Gigi's been the sweetest, takes care of me, makes me dope food, she does all the shots for me because, even though I'm covered in tattoos, needles freak me out, so I can't even see the shots being prepared. She handles all of that, comes with me to all my appointments, and is just the best wife about it."
