Television personality Carson Daly is a busy man and is about to become even busier. Carson is one of the hosts of The Today Show and while on air Friday morning, he announced some pretty exciting news: he and his wife Siri are expecting their fourth child together. His announcement was followed by cheers and hugs from his fellow hosts. Carson and his wife currently have two girls and one boy, 10-year-old Jackson, 7-year-old Etta, and 5-year-old London. They are ecstatic to become a family of six, according to Today.
The Today Show crew couldn’t be happier for the family, who has appeared together on the show several times. Siri, a former film producer, is now a food contributor for The Today Show, and frequently shares her favorite recipes during morning cooking segments. Meanwhile, when Carson isn’t busy being a dad or co-hosting on Today, he’s serving as the host for other television shows such as The Voice.
Carson also used to host Last Call with Carson Daly, but, as The Inquisitr previously reported, he revealed he was moving on from that show because he was ready for something new.
While there is no denying that the Dalys’ already busy lives are about to get even more chaotic, the couple is beyond grateful for the new addition they are expecting, as Carson told his Today Show co-hosts.
“We couldn’t be happier to share the news that our family is growing by one this spring. We are continually amazed by God’s blessings in our lives. Our entire family is grateful and so excited,” he said.
“You should hug Siri not me, I’ve done very little in this situation,” he joked as he received embraces from his Today Show colleagues.
Carson is surrounded by love in his life. Recently, he has relied upon this love — and the joy he gets from his family — to survive some especially painful times. In 2017, he was heartbroken after losing his mother Patti unexpectedly when she had a heart attack and then, only five weeks later, losing his stepfather Richard to bone cancer.
Carson prides himself in being an active and dutiful father, showering his children in the love he was lucky enough to experience growing up. He has said, however, that his adoration for his kids makes it all the more difficult to leave home for business.
“I don’t think anybody gives us credit for being emotional. I’m very sentimental with my kids. When I’m driving to JFK (airport) and I’m going to be gone for five days, it really does suck,” he said when discussing his devotion to fatherhood.
