There’s a baby boom going on at The Daily Show.

On-air correspondent Samantha Bee is a new mom, host Jon Stewart announced Thursday on the Comedy Central program.

During a call-in segment Bee, who Stewart said is “taking some time off after the birth her child,” was featured over the phone and shown in a series of still photos, the last of which had her breastfeeding.

“Sam, are you, are you, are you, are you… breastfeeding right now?” Stewart stammered.

“Why do you ask?” replied Bee, who is married to fellow Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones.

“No reason,” said Stewart. “Thanks for calling in.”

Also expecting a baby is the usually embarrassing (on purpose) correspondent Rob Corddry and his wife Sandra. The new arrival, which will be the couple’s first child, is due in the late spring, the show’s publicist confirmed to PEOPLE.

Stewart himself is also an expectant dad. His wife Tracey is due to give birth to the couple’s second child, a girl, in February. Their son, Nathan Thomas, was born in the summer of 2004.
