Dylan Dreyer has officially expanded her family! The Today star welcomed her third child, Russell, with her husband, Brian Fichera, giving the couple’s older sons, Calvin and Oliver, a little brother. The news of baby No. 3’s arrival was announced by Dylan’s cohosts on the NBC morning show.
“Mom and babe [are] doing just fine,” Hoda Kotb said on Today, revealing Dylan gave birth on September 29 at 2:38 a.m. The television personality’s little bundle of joy weighed 5 pounds, 5 ounces and was 18 inches long.
Dylan welcomed her adorable little one more than four months after she shared the news of her third pregnancy in May. Appearing on Today alongside her eldest boy, Calvin, the doting mama unveiled her growing baby bump while making cinnamon buns in her kitchen. Telling her cohosts how thrilled she is to expand their family, Dylan marveled over the joys of motherhood.
“We really enjoy having kids. Calvin and Ollie, they’re so much fun,” she gushed. “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!”
Later that day, Dylan announced the sex of her little one during Today‘s third hour, telling viewers she was pregnant with a boy. “It’s fun to add another boy to the mix!” the ABC News personality marveled. “I don’t have to add any toys!”
