ABC’s World News Tonight co-anchor Elizabeth Vargas will be having a boy later this year, the New York Post reports. Vargas’s network announced the pregnancy early last month, but this is the first news of the baby’s gender.

Vargas and her husband, singer-songwriter Marc Cohn (who sings the hit song “Walking in Memphis”), already have a son, Zachary, 3. Cohn also has two children, Max, 14, and Emily, 11, from a previous marriage.

Vargas, 43, co-anchors World News Tonight with Bob Woodruff, 44, who was injured in roadside bombing in Iraq on Jan. 29. He is still recovering.

Vargas also co-anchors 20/20. She will continue to anchor both programs through late summer, according to the network.
