“Today’s” meteorologist Dylan Dreyer has a baby on the way!
Dreyer is pregnant with her second child with husband Brian Fichera. She announced the big news during the third hour of Wednesday’s episode of “Today.”
The 37-year-old shared a video of her adorable son Calvin, 2 ½, holding a sonogram, insisting that she was going to have “five babies.” She explained that he wants “five of everything.”
Dylan and Brian were planning to start IVF in May when they got a surprise call from their doctor. She said, “My doctor calls and says, 'Don't take anything. You're pregnant!' I'm just so happy now, I've been keeping this secret so long.”
She revealed that she’s expecting a baby boy, who is due in January. During the episode, Calvin came on set in a blue SUV with blue balloons attached.
Dreyer shared, “Calvin is so excited. Last night at dinner, he said, 'Can I kiss the baby?' It's the sweetest thing. I don't think he understands exactly what baby is and how much it will change his life."
Her "Today" colleague also offered her some advice. Watch!
The news comes months after Dreyer revealed that she suffered a miscarriage over the winter. She broke the sad news on the same day that Jenna Bush Hager announced she was expecting her third child on “Today.” Dreyer told Hager, “My sadness does not take away from your joy. I'm not even really sad right now. I'm just in a crappy situation, to be honest with you, and I am hoping it all works out."
She told Today Parents magazine in April, “I didn’t know secondary infertility was a thing!”
“That being said, we want to give Calvin a sibling. The way Cal loves on other babies and asks to hold them and gently touches their arms shows me that he would be an amazing older brother,” Dylan continued. “We have so much love to give and we want to grow our family. We thought it would be easy to do that, and it’s not.”
Dylan emphasized that her scar-removal surgery also helped her conceive, telling People magazine, “I know the surgery I did, to clear out all the scarring from my previous section, made a huge difference. But I also think my prayers were answered.”
She added, “I knew it was in God’s hands, and this is certainly an answered prayer.”
