Welcome to the world, Owen Thomas Burnett Rubulotta!

Burnett’s rep confirmed to PEOPLE exclusively in March that she and her husband, who wed in December 2012, were expanding their brood once again.

“We are so excited for number three. As one of three myself, I think it’s a lucky number!” the on-air personality said at the time.

Last week, Burnett’s OutFront team sent her off on maternity leave with style, hosting a sweet celebration chock full of themed cupcakes, games — and gifts, of course.

With a growing family, Burnett previously revealed having children has shaped her job and how she covers news stories related to gun violence and war.

“I guess in a way because it’s more tangible in my mind,” the now-mother of three explained in an interview with The Wrap in February 2016.

“It’s not even so much about having kids, but as you start to get older, you’re like, ‘Gosh, we used to be that generation that everyone talked about, the future is yours,’ ” she added.
