Fox News host Jesse Watters let his fans and viewers in a major, life-altering event in his life on Monday.
Watters, whose primetime show has rocketed to the top of cable news ratings, along with most of Fox’s offerings, revealed that his wife, Emma DiGiovine, is expecting the couple’s second child.
“My wife, Emma, is pregnant with a girl. So, we’re having a girl and she’s five months along which I think is halfway through. And she looks fantastic, you can’t even tell that she’s pregnant,” he said on “The Five,” which he co-hosts.
They have a son, Jesse Bailey Watters Jr., who was born Apr. 2, 2021.
Co-host Greg Gutfeld couldn’t help himself and joked, “There’s no gender until the child decides.”
But Watters fired back, “No, we assign the gender at birth in our family and we usually get it right.”

The Fox News Network received more good news last week as the company heads into the final month of 2022.
According to ratings reports, the network blew away rivals MSNBC and CNN in November, landing 93 shows in the top 100.
Fox News also had the top 14 programs in cable news with viewers and the top 15 cable news programs in the coveted 25-54 demo.
In total day viewers, Fox News delivered 1.6 million viewers. In primetime, the network delivered 2.4 million viewers, giving the outlet 56 percent of cable news viewers across primetime and 54 percent in total day.
That means Fox News alone has managed to capture more than half of the entire cable new-viewing audience.
The news comes as CNN is facing massive layoffs, including top talent like Chris Cillizza.
Fox News noted in a statement that even its late-night offering featuring Greg Gutfeld was in the top tier:
Gutfeld! delivered its highest-rated month since launch in viewers and A25-54, topping all of late-night television across the board in viewers with 2,322,000 viewers.
Host Greg Gutfeld also outpaced CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in the younger A25-54 demographic for the full month for the first time with 397,000.
During the month of November, Gutfeld! bested CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (2,134,000 P2+; 375,000 A25-54), ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! (1,395,000 P2+; 309,000 A25-54) and NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon (1,524,000 P2+; 434,000 A25-54) in total viewers and defeated Colbert and Kimmel in A25-54.
In cable, FNC’s late-night show swept Comedy Central’s The Daily Show (419,000 P2+, 148,000 A25-54) across the board in total viewers, the 25-54 demo and 18-49. Airing at 11 PM/ET, the program topped every show on CNN and MSNBC as well with both viewers and A25-54.
