Well here's a bouncing bundle of news: NBC's Jenna Wolfe and Stephanie Gosk are expecting a baby girl. By the way, they're also coming out as a couple of three years now, and they're engaged.

We hardly know what kind of congratulations to send, other than, "All of the above."

Weekend "Today" show anchor Wolfe brought her spirited self to the weekday "Today" show Wednesday to announce the baby news — she's five months along, due Aug. 27.

"I'm actually pregnant. I'm quite pregnant actually. My girlfriend, Stephanie Gosk, and I, who works here at NBC, we're expecting a baby girl at the end of August."

Gosk, who's a foreign correspondent for the network, sat with Wolfe for an article in People that simultaneously announces the news this week.

"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," Wolfe, 39, told the mag. 

"The beauty is that we live in a time where there’s no need for secrecy," Gosk, 40, said. "This is a spectacular moment for us."

The couple decided Wolfe would carry the child, then used artificial insemination with an anonymous donor. Then it was time for the morning sickness to start.

"She made the first four months brutal for me … B-R-U-T-A-L," Wolfe wrote in what is her first blog post about her pregnancy. "There were days when all I could eat were Saltine crackers, Apple Jacks dry cereal and plain pasta. Let's just say I have a newfound respect for any woman anywhere who tells me they've experienced morning sickness."

Gosk and Wolfe said they intend to marry, but for now, baby is job No. 1.
