Kelly announced the news during a weather segment with Janice Dean (transcript after the jump). If it looks familiar, that’s because Dean announced her own pregnancy on Kelly’s show back in August during a weather segment.
Update: Video after the jump (via J$P).
Dean: We had snow on Long Island. Look at this storm, a big pinwheel here. We have lots of snow across the higher elevations. Snow and wind in parts of the northeast. The next part of the forecast, I want to say what a fantastic job you did on election night, you were like the energy bunny.
Kelly: the Energizer Bunny
Dean: You did your show, and you were on for hours and hours with all the voting, you did an amazing job and you looked beautiful.
Kelly: It was even more amazing because I did it on no caffeine. And the reason I did it without any caffeine is because I, too, am expecting a little baby.
Dean: Forecasts calling for babies! There it is.
Kelly said that she expects to take a “brief maternity leave” after having the baby, who will join older brother Yates.
