Dreyer's Today co-anchors shared news of her baby boy's birth on the show Wednesday.

"Dylan Dreyer -- her new bundle of joy has arrived," Hoda Kotb said. "Mom and babe doing fine."

"Big congrats to Dylan and Brian, and the big brothers now -- Cal and Ollie," Craig Melvin added.

Dreyer had shared a photo from the hospital Tuesday on Instagram, telling fans her water broke six weeks early.

"Our little girl is anxious to get out and meet us! Doctors are closely monitoring both of us and trying to keep him on the inside for a little while longer to get stronger," Dreyer wrote. "All is well! I'm in great hands and I have the best person to keep me calm and comfortable."

"Looks like we'll be getting to meet our littlest boy sometime this week... 6 weeks early! Guess he couldn't handle being left out of all the fun his brothers have been having!" she said. "We'll gladly take any extra prayers you have."
