“Just a little update as you won’t be seeing me on @todayshow or @3rdhourtoday for a while,” Dreyer, who is the meteorologist and 3rd hour co-host, wrote on Instagram. In the post, she shared two hospital room photos.
“My water broke Sunday evening and I’ve been hanging at the hospital. Our little guy is anxious to get out and meet us!” she continues. “Doctors are closely monitoring both of us and trying to keep him on the inside for a little while longer to get stronger.”
Dreyer and her husband, Brian Fichera, are already parents to sons Calvin, 4, and Oliver, 1. Back in May, she announced she was expecting her third baby—and blamed the show Bridgerton for getting pregnant (which, relatable). In an Instagram post at the time, Fichera shared an ultrasound photo, which he captioned, “When two people are quarantined together for over a year and Bridgerton is on…”
As for their third bundle of joy, Dreyer says her youngest son will likely make his appearance later this week despite being so early.
“All is well! I’m in great hands and I have the best person to keep me calm and comfortable,” she writes. “Looks like we’ll be getting to meet our littlest boy sometime this week…6 weeks early! Guess he couldn’t handle being left out of all the fun his brothers have been having!”
Dreyer has also been candid about her experience with secondary infertility—she suffered a miscarriage in 2019 while trying to have a second child.
“So many women are going through their own fertility issues, and I want to open up the conversation to get us all talking instead of sneaking onto that baby chat room and scrolling endlessly through the comments hoping to stumble upon someone going through a similar situation as us,” she wrote at the time.
As for her current situation, she remains confident that she’s receiving the best care possible, but she still has one request:
“We’ll gladly take any extra prayers you have.”
Consider it done. ❤️
