Jenna Wolfe shared a double dose of exciting news this week!
On Wednesday, the “Today” show weekend anchor announced she is pregnant on the “Today” show, and also revealed she is in a relationship with NBC News correspondent Stephanie Gosk.
“I’m pregnant. Quite pregnant, actually,” Jenna told Matt Lauer on the show, adding that the couple is expecting a baby girl.
Jenna also spoke with People about why she chose to come out.
“This is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to us,” the anchor, 39, told the mag. “But I don’t want to bring my daughter into a world where I’m not comfortable telling everyone who I am and who her mother is.”
Like Jenna, Stephanie is overjoyed to be part of this historic time for the LGBT community.
“The beauty is that we live in a time where there’s no need for secrecy,” Stephanie added. “This is a spectacular moment for us.”
The couple has been together for three years, and — after choosing Jenna to carry their child – the anchor underwent artificial insemination using an anonymous donor.
Jenna is due on August 27.
