"Today" weekend anchor Jenna Wolfe made two big announcements this morning: Wolfe came out as a lesbian, introducing her partner as "NBC News" correspondent Stephanie Gosk, and said the two are expecting their first child.
She tweeted, "Well, Here we go!!" this morning in anticipation, then announced, "I'm pregnant, I'm quite pregnant," on this morning's show. The couple's baby girl is due in June. "I know I'm not the first person to have a baby, but I am having a baby for the first time," Wolfe joked, saying that she plans to write a humorous blog as the pregnancy progresses.
The announcement coincides with a spread in People magazine. “This is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to us,” Wolfe told People. “But I don’t want to bring my daughter into a world where I’m not comfortable telling everyone who I am and who her mother is.”
Gosk and Wolfe are planning to get married, too. “The beauty is that we live in a time where there’s no need for secrecy,” Gosk explains to People. “This is a spectacular moment for us.”
