Dylan Dreyer Just Revealed Big Family News

"The Today Show" co-anchor and NBC meteorologist Dylan Dreyer has had an astronomical career trajectory. She began her career in 2003 as a weekend meteorologist at a local channel and NBC affiliate in Erie, Pennsylvania. Moving up the ranks, Dreyer then went on to work in Providence, RI, and later Boston, where she had been named Boston's Best Meteorologist by "Improper Bostonian" magazine. Proving that she could handle even more, Dreyer took on an anchor position at the national level with "The Today Show" in 2012. 

Along with her "Today" show position, Dreyer also served as the host of "Journey with Dylan Dreyer," in which she brought viewers on adventures all over the globe, discussing the wonders of nature and also giving candid thoughts about her career and her role as mother and wife. It's in the realm of children and family that Dreyer's announcement in 2021 came, which eventually led the "Today" show news anchor to dropping one of her popular NBC gigs

Dylan Dreyer's happy announcement

After struggling with secondary infertility after the birth of her first child in 2016, Dylan Dreyer gave birth to her second son in 2020, much to her joy and that of her husband, Brian Fichera. Then, Dreyer seemed overjoyed to share the news that the couple was expecting their third child in November 2021 (via People). At the time, Dreyer also promised to announce the sex of the baby on live television when the news became available. Her third son, Russell James Fichera, actually arrived earlier than expected in September 2021.

Dreyer said in 2021 of her children and of her desire to keep growing her family, "We really enjoy having kids [...] And we're like, 'Let's try for a third.' And it wasn't happening so we said, 'Let's forget it, let's move on.' And then, of course, surprise!" Dreyer had previously discussed her struggles with miscarriage and secondary infertility, and so this announcement was filled with immense excitement. She shared of her second child, "By putting my story out there, I feel like the thousands of prayers and good wishes we received really made a difference. I knew it was in God's hands, and this is certainly an answered prayer."
