Dylan Dreyer will soon be a mom of three! The Today Show host announced that she is pregnant live on Tuesday’s episode of the show.
The NBC News meteorologist is expecting her third baby with her husband Brian Fichera. The “bun in the oven” will join the couple’s two sons Oliver George, 16 months, and Calvin Bradley, 4.
Dylan Dreyer Announced Her Pregnancy by Sharing a Clip of Her Baking Cinnamon Buns with Her Son on Today.
Dylan Dreyer showed a video of herself and “Cal” making cinnamon “buns in the oven” on Today. Her son was tasked with revealing the exciting news as his Dreyer cradled her belly.
After her co-anchors remarked that they suspected something was amiss, the soon-to-be mom of three revealed that she is due in November and promised she would reveal the sex of the baby soon.
I’m holding my stomach and I don’t have to hold it in anymore,” Dreyer joked following the pregnancy announcement.
“We really enjoy having kids,” the host added. “Calvin and Ollie, they’re so much fun. And we’re like, ‘Let’s try for a third.’ And it wasn’t happening so we said, ‘Let’s forget it, let’s move on.’ And then, of course, surprise!”
Dreyer, who is 39, previously opened up about her struggle with secondary infertility and suffering a miscarriage, People reported. After trying to conceive for six months, the mom was finally referred to a specialist and, ultimately, conceived her youngest son, Oliver.
In early spring 2019, Dreyer spoke about her fertility difficulties on the Today show and, that July, announced the wonderful news that she was expecting a baby again.
The NBC host said that she had to undergo surgery to clear out scarring left from her C-section which she claimed made a “huge difference” in her pregnancy journey. News that she was pregnant came just as she and Fichera were about to resort to IVF.
“I was just waiting for the phone call from Dr. Reichman, to tell me how much of each drug to use,” Dreyer told People of her planned ovarian-stimulation cycle. “Instead, when he called, he said, ‘Well, you can’t start IVF because you’re already pregnant!’ We were in complete shock. We couldn’t believe it!”
“By putting my story out there, I feel like the thousands of prayers and good wishes we received really made a difference,” she explained to the outlet. “I knew it was in God’s hands, and this is certainly an answered prayer.”
News of Dylan Dreyer’s latest pregnancy comes amid a very busy year for the Today co-anchor.
In early April, the meteorologist announced that she had written a children’s book entitled, Misty the Cloud: A Very Stormy Day. The picture book about “a little cloud with very big feelings,” will be released in September and you can pre-order a copy for your kids HERE.
The first in an upcoming series, Misty the Cloud is “a sweet story about kids understanding their emotions, learning to deal with their emotions, how it impacts those around them,” the author said on Today in March.
According to the fledgling children’s book author, the project was “10 years in the making.” The book was the brainchild of both Dreyer and her husband. “It’s been a long time coming, so I’m just so proud it’s finally here,” she wrote in a tweet.
We are so thrilled for this mom and all of the many projects that she has and will bring into this world. We can’t wait to learn the sex of her baby and what she plans to name him or her! Congrats, Dylan Dreyer and Brian Fichera!
