Jenna Wolfe, the weekend anchor for NBC's Today Show, has made two big announcements this week--that she is a lesbian in a relationship with NBC News correspondent Stephanie Gosk, and that Wolfe is expecting the couple's first child, a girl, in August. More from PEOPLE.com:
"This is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to us," the Today weekend anchor tells PEOPLE exclusively in its new issue. "But 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."
"The beauty is that we live in a time where there's no need for secrecy," Gosk, 40, adds. "This is a spectacular moment for us."
Together for three years, the pair began discussing starting a family and after deciding Wolfe would carry the child, underwent artificial insemination with an anonymous donor.
