show's Natalie Morales is three months pregnant, she announced Thursday on the morning show.
"We’re really excited!" Morales, 35, said. "It’s truly a blessing." The morning show cohost and her husband, Joe Rhodes, already have a 4-year-old son, Josh Added Morales: "He's excited to be a big brother. He says he'll share all his toys."
NBC News confirms that Morales is due Sept. 16. While she will not be covering all the fall events – the political conventions this summer or the Olympics – she is already thinking about her post-maternity leave stories. "I'm inspired to do all the getting-fit-after-the-baby segments," she said.
