In the midst of her third pregnancy, Today show co-host and meteorologist Dylan Dreyer has been admitted to the hospital. On Tuesday, Dreyer announced via an Instagram post that she’s in the hospital and won’t be on air anytime soon. So should fans be concerned for the Today meteorologist and her unborn baby?
Dylan Dreyer Announces Third Baby
Dreyer first announced her pregnancy on a May episode of the Today show. “It’s fun to add another boy to the mix!” the co-host said during her announcement. Dreyer was excited when she found out she was pregnant with her third child, as she and her husband, Brian Fichera, had pregnancy troubles in the past. In 2019, the Today meteorologist revealed she experienced a miscarriage. “We were trying, and it wasn’t really happening, and we just kind of gave up,” Dreyer admitted.
Anxious to have another child, Dreyer consulted her doctor to see if anything was wrong. Fortunately, her doctor found nothing wrong with Dreyer and simply suggested she relax and stop thinking about pregnancy too much. “Sure enough, that’s what we did!” Dreyer said, and shortly after, she found out she was pregnant.
Why Is Dylan Dreyer In The Hospital?
Dreyer can be seen sitting in a hospital bed with Fichera, in her Instagram post. Of course, this immediately sparked concern amongst Today show fans across the country. Dreyer explained, “My water broke Sunday evening, and I’ve been hanging at the hospital.” According to Dreyer’s caption, her water broke rather prematurely, forcing her to seek the help of medical professionals.
“Looks like we’ll be getting to meet our littlest boy sometime this week…6 weeks early!” Dreyer exclaimed. Despite the potential health effects a premature birth can have on a child and the mother, Dreyer seemed to be staying positive with the help of her husband. When she mentioned Fichera in her caption, Dreyer said she had “the best person to keep me calm and comfortable.” “Guess he couldn’t handle being left out of all the fun his brothers have been having!” Dreyer added of her unborn third child.
In her informative post, Dreyer reassured fans and followers they have nothing to be worried about. “All is well! I’m in great hands,” she wrote, hoping to put her fans’ concerns to rest. Additionally, the meteorologist revealed the next steps in her pregnancy writing, “Doctors are closely monitoring both of us and trying to keep him on the inside for a little while longer to get stronger.” Despite how serious and concerning the Instagram post initially seemed, it looks as if we have little to worry about with Dreyer’s pregnancy.
