Dylan Dreyer‘s baby boy has arrived!

The Today show meteorologist and third-hour co-anchor, 38, has welcomed her second child with husband Brian Fichera, a son named Oliver George Fichera, PEOPLE confirms.

The forecast for 2020 is certainly looking fine with the couple’s baby boy arriving at 9:13 am on Thursday.

Oliver George arrived weighing 7 lbs. 2oz. and he measured 19 inches long.

Dreyer and Fichera’s new bundle of joy makes their family a family of four alongside his proud parents and big brother Calvin Bradley, 3.

The loss followed a struggle with trying to conceive for six months before being referred to a specialist.

The couple was ready to turn to in vitro fertilization to help conceive a sibling for Calvin when they got an unexpected — yet exciting — call from their doctor.

We couldn’t believe it!”

The meteorologist also said it was “killing” her not to tell her Today costar Jenna Bush Hager about her pregnancy (the former first daughter coincidentally announced she was expecting her third child the same day as Dreyer’s discussion about her miscarriage and secondary infertility).

Other attendees included Craig MelvinHoda Kotb, Al Roker and Sheinelle Jones, as well as Fichera, 33.

“It was a shock and a different kind of surprise because I knew I was going somewhere dressed up for a holiday promo shoot,” she said of the Dec. 2 bash, which was held at Fishbowl sports lounge in New York City.

But the dessert table also included Rebecca’s Cake Pops shaped like baseballs, tennis balls, footballs and basketballs.

“I knew I was going to see everybody I work with, but when I walked in [and] there was this tunnel of people waiting for me to walk through the door and the camera lights were there, I was like, ‘What is going on?’ ” she recalled of the sweet event. “It took a minute for it to register. Then I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is all for me. This is so, so special.’ “

“I feel so grateful because I know it was so much harder this time around,” Dreyer told PEOPLE exclusively in December of getting pregnant naturally. “We weren’t sure we were going to get pregnant or what sort of IVF treatments we’d have to go through to be able to have this baby. So every night I pray and thank God for putting us in this situation and giving us this opportunity and not having to struggle any longer than we did.”

As she prepared to welcome another son, Dreyer was also staying focused on how her first child would handle all the changes. “I’m more worried about Calvin’s feeling than this baby,” she said, noting that things were very different when she was preparing to become a first-time mom.

“When I was pregnant with Calvin, it was all about the nerves of having a new baby and not knowing what to do with a new baby. And this time around, I know the baby’s going to be fine and I’m so worried about Calvin’s feelings,” Dreyer added. “For the past three years it’s all been about him.”
