Whoa, baby! Ginger Zee’s Good Morning America colleagues — George Stephanopoulos, Robin Roberts, Lara Spencer and Michael Strahan — threw her a baby shower to send her off before she welcomes baby No. 2.
“Bittersweet, we’re going to be saying goodbye to Ginger for just a little while — tomorrow is the big day,” Stephanopoulos said on GMA on Thursday, February 8.
“The big day is tomorrow … we cannot wait to meet this little guy,” Zee replied. “I was telling Robin on the way in, I think it really hit me last night. I didn’t sleep much, I was like ‘Wait, I’m going to have another baby. It just hit me.”’
The hosts then take turns gifting Zee with books for her new bundle of joy. “I want to thank you because we all decided we were going to bring you baby books,” Stephanopoulos explained, giving Zee the book Sweet Pea. “So I had to go into Harper and Elliot’s room yesterday and good through all the books and great memories.”
Roberts chose the book she read at the White House Easter Egg Roll in 2016, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.
Spencer and Strahan rounded out the book selections with their favorite childhood books, The Monster at the End of This Book and Winnie the Pooh, respectively.
The cohosts then surprised the chief meteorologist with a special guest — her 2-year-old son Adrian.
“Who’s in mommy’s belly?” Zee asked her son, to which he replied, “Goofy!”
“Every time we ask him what he wants to name his baby brother, it’s Goofy,” Zee said with a laugh.
The Natural Disaster: I Cover Them. I Am One author announced in August that she is expecting with her second son with husband Ben Aaron.
