After popping a balloon filled with blue confetti, she exclaimed, “It's a boy! After five girls, it's a boy! Happy New Year!”
In January, Andrea expressed on "Today" that she “wanted a boy so badly” after having five girls.
While noting that her “window was closing” on having more kids, she shared, “I honestly didn't think it would work. And here we are.”
Andrea and Tony have been married since 2008. She made sure to show her apprecation to Tony, commenting, “He's the dad that's doing everything at night when I'm falling asleep. He's Mr. Energizer Bunny.”
Hopefully, we'll get to see a precious photo of her baby boy soon!
