Harris says she decided to reveal the good news after many people started wondering if she'd gotten plastic surgery.
"My publicist was getting calls about it, my family got calls about it," Harris, says, laughing. "I did not get a boob job, but I have put on a little weight because I am happy to finally say I am pregnant."
This will be the first child for Harris, 33, who is also an E! Entertainment news correspondent, and husband Michael, a financial wholesaler. The couple recently bought their first home in Los Angeles and are readying a nursery for the baby's fall arrival.
"Things are great and we heard the heart beat for the first time," Harris says of her pregnancy, which won't interfere with her hosting duties this season or next.
"I love this show so much I didn't want to miss a single second," says Harris, who is expected to make a formal announcement on Tuesday's live telecast of Dancing with the Stars.
