NBC News's Natalie Morales gave birth Tuesday to her second child, a boy named Luke, colleague Meredith Vieira announced on Wednesday's Today show.

The new arrival weighed 7 lbs., 4 oz., said Vieira, adding, "Mom, Dad, baby Luke and big brother Josh are all doing just great."

Morales, 36, married Joe Rhodes, an investment consultant, on Aug. 22, 1998.

When she announced her pregnancy in March – with a due date of Sept. 16 – Morales said of son Josh, 4: "He's excited to be a big brother. He says he'll share all his toys ... he says that now!"

She also said, "When I found out I was pregnant, it was the best news I'd gotten all year. We had been trying for a long time. ... Most people think you can just decide to have a child, but it just doesn't work that way."

Before recently beginning maternity leave, Morales's major story was a jailhouse interview with the man who calls himself Clark Rockefeller.
