Fox News' rising star Megyn Kelly gave birth to a baby boy this week ahead of her move into the network's prime-time lineup when she returns from maternity leave.

Fellow anchor, Shannon Bream delivered news on Friday of the birth of Kelly’s third child on Tuesday, Thatcher Bray Brunt during “American Live” — but only after she teased the big announcement on Twitter:


"Megyn and Doug's third child was born at 8 pounds, 2 ounces. He has brown hair, blue eyes; he is gorgeous," Bream announced as reported by Us Weekly. "Mom says the description of him — and this is a quote — 'Totally awesome.' and dad are thrilled, and so is Thatcher's big brother Yates (age 3) and his big sister Yardley (age 2)."

Kelly's husband Douglas Brunt is a writer and novelist.

The network announced the popular daytime host’s move into its prime-time lineup in recent weeks but left fans — and Fox News colleagues — wondering whose spot Kelly would take.

Chairman Roger Ailes did not announce where Kelly's new show would be scheduled, or whether she is replacing anybody.

Except for when Sean Hannity's liberal foil Alan Colmes left after the 2008 election, there hasn't been a change to the most stable and successful lineup in cable news in a decade.

"Megyn is an exceptional talent who has successfully filled and surpassed each role we have given her at the network," Ailes said in a statement. "Her ability to command the screen, delve into the facts and lead a debate is what makes her one of the most sought-after anchors in the business."

But Ailes also noted that Hannity and the rest of Fox News' prime-time hosts — Bill O'Reilly, Greta Van Susteren, Shepard Smith and Bret Baier — are all signed to long-term contracts.

Kelly, a former lawyer, has hosted the two-hour news program "America Live" at 1 p.m. Eastern since 2010 and co-anchored convention and election night coverage with Bret Baier during the last election season.
