In a chat with weathercaster Janice Dean, a smiling Kelly said of her and her hubby, “Every Valentine’s Day we always struggle to find just the right gift and yet ...this year I believe that we’ve found the perfect solution. Happily, Doug and I are expecting another baby.”
The anchor was then showered with gifts on-air, including a pink boa and balloons.
“Special Report” host and former chief White House correspondent Bret Baier welcomed the news, writing on Twitter, “Congratulations to my friend & colleague [Megyn Kelly] and her husband [Doug Brunt]! They announced today that they are expecting their 3rd baby!”
Senior White House correspondent Ed Henry tweeted, “Congrats [Megyn Kelly] new baby on the way.”
Kelly and her husband are parents to two young children, Edward and Yardley.
The cable news personality joked about her expanding belly during the surprise announcement, cracking, “There’s not going to be a lot of standup shots in the near future.”
