"We're so happy for you guys," Savannah Guthrie told the new co-host of Today With Hoda & Jenna.
The future mom of three noted she was worried to tell Hoda Kotb considering they just started their new show together, but recalled her having a "glimmer in her eye." As fans have since found out, Kotb recently became a mom times two after adopting daughter Hope Catherine Kotb.
"We better check the water in this place," Melvin quipped.
As the expectant host joked of her husband, "Henry needs the congratulations because he's a little terrified."
During the fourth hour of Today, Hager, who is more than 5 months along, also shared she's having a boy after opening a box filled with blue balloons.
"We weren't really trying to get pregnant. We had some fertility issues with Poppy, so we just, you know—it was a date night," she told temporary co-host Meredith Vieira. "Sorry, mom."
Hager added, "It's a little bit of a shock, but it's such great news."
Congratulations to the future family of five!
