Dylan Dreyer is excited to be a doting mother of two, but the Today show meteorologist admitted that being pregnant after experiencing a miscarriage has been much harder.
The 38-year-old announced she was expecting her second child with husband Brian Fichera this past July. She suffered through a miscarriage earlier this year.
“I feel so grateful because I know it was so much harder this time around,” Dylan revealed to People. The Today show third hour cohost got pregnant naturally with her second baby. “We weren’t sure we were going to get pregnant or what sort of IVF treatments we’d have to go through to be able to have this baby.”
She continued, "So every night I pray and thank God for putting us in this situation and giving us this opportunity and not having to struggle any longer than we did." Dylan and her husband were already thinking about using IVF before learning that she was pregnant again.
The NBC anchor and Brian shared two-year-old son, Calvin Bradley, and will be welcoming their second son in January 2020. Dylan explained she's worried how Calvin will handle being a big brother. “I’m more worried about Calvin’s feeling than this baby,” she said.
“When I was pregnant with Calvin, it was all about the nerves of having a new baby and not knowing what to do with a new baby. And this time around, I know the baby’s going to be fine and I’m so worried about Calvin’s feelings,” she added. “For the past three years it’s all been about him.”
Dylan's Today show family has been supportive throughout her pregnancy. On December 3, her co-anchors threw her a surprise baby shower at the Fishbowl game room at New York’s Dream Midtown hotel. Dylan shared a series of snaps from the fun night on Instagram and captioned them, "It’s a holiday promo shoot” they said....then SURPRISE!! My @3rdhourtoday and @todayshow families threw me a surprise party to welcome in baby #2! More pics to come! I feel so blessed and lucky to work with people I love! #gobabygo!"
Friends and coworkers like Al Roker, Sheinelle Jones, Hoda Kotb, Jenna Bush Hager and Craig Melvin attended the bash.
