Baby makes three for Ginger Zee!

The ABC chief meteorologist and her husband, NBC news correspondent Ben Aaron, welcomed son Adrian Benjamin Colonomos on Saturday, Dec. 19, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Born via c-section at 11:05 a.m. in New York City, Adrian weighed in at 7 lbs., 8 oz. and measured 20.5 inches long.

“Meet my little love,” Zee, 34, posted on Twitter Sunday, announcing her son’s birth and sharing a family photo.

This is the first child for the couple, who revealed the sex of their baby during a fun Good Morning America segment in July. The parents-to-be uncovered the lids of large alphabet blocks, out of which popped blue balloons.

“We are elated to have the opportunity to be parents,” Zee said.

“Motherhood will absolutely be my most extreme adventure yet! Can’t wait to teach [him] all my favorite meteorology terms.”

Happy day after Thanksgiving! Have a safe day y'all. #findotis #silentdog

In October, the mom-to-be celebrated the upcoming arrival of her baby boy with a festive pumpkin-themed shower.

“It was intimate, informal and everything I could have asked for. I felt so loved and supported,” she told PEOPLE.

Appearing on Good Morning America Tuesday from her hospital room, Zee said, “He’s doing very well. He’s so alert … today’s the last day in the hospital, we hope. He’s eating and he’s burping … doing all the stuff he’s supposed to do. Ben has changed 90 percent [of the diapers].”

Welcome to the world, Baby Zee!

For a second, I mistook “Goodnight Moon” for the other soothing children’s bedtime tale, “Go the F#@$% to sleep”.

I think both are essential reads.

I am scared to trust anything that PEOPLE reports as there is no such thing as Saturday, December 17, 2015. Anyway, if Ginger’s baby was born yesterday on Saturday, CONGRATS!

Congratulations! You rocked this pregnancy. I hope all is well with you and the family. May he bring you so much joy. Take it one day at a time. Motherhood can get overwhelming but it is one the most important jobs. Take care of yourself. Make time for you and you will be fine.

Congratulation to Ginger and Ben. I saw her on GMA Friday morning when she announced it was her last day .Her fellow anchors were commenting on the fact she was working right up to her due date. She chuckled and said she really had nothing else to do so why not work. She looked great during the whole pregnancy and said she would certainly be coming back…but not too soon!

Love her on GMA! Congrations to her on the new addition.

Welcome ABC!! on

Beautiful little boy! I thought all babies are born with blue eyes. They both have blue eyes but the baby’s eyes look so dark in that pic. Interesting, must be the lights. She was so weepy Friday talking about a C-section, had a feeling it was Saturday. Tough cookie, hope her back feels better now!
