It’s a boy!

CNN anchor Erin Burnett and husband David Rubulotta have welcomed their first child, a son named Nyle Thomas.

“Dave and I welcomed a healthy, happy baby boy at 9:47 p.m. Friday Nov. 29th,” the Erin Burnett OutFront host tells PEOPLE. “He weighed in at 8 lbs., 10 oz.”

Burnett, 37, who married Rubulotta — a managing director at Citigroup — last December,  announced her pregnancy in June.

“We’ve always wanted this and we’re very lucky,” she said at the time.

Burnett was overjoyed to hold her baby in her arms, telling PEOPLE, “Seeing him for the first time was the most awe-inspiring, joyful moment of our lives.”
