Zee, 37, enjoyed a baby shower Thursday on the set of GMA to celebrate her son, as well as mark her last day of work before maternity leave. Among the sweet gifts she received were a collection of books including Little Pea, Winnie-the-Pooh, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and The Monster at the End of This Book.
“The big day is tomorrow … we cannot wait to meet this little guy,” she said. “I was telling Robin [Roberts] on the way in, I think it really hit me last night.”
But that didn’t stop her from showing off her baby bump one last time. On Thursday night, Zee walked the runway in the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection 2018 fashion show, where celebrities donned the color in an effort to spread awareness about women’s heart health.

And as she celebrated her last day at work before going on maternity leave, Zee received one more surprise: a visit from Adrian! And as it turns out, the soon-to-be big brother already has a name picked out for his baby sibling.
“Who’s in mommy’s belly?” Zee asked her son. His reply? “Goofy!”
“Every time we ask him what he wants to name his baby brother, it’s Goofy,” she told her GMA colleagues and the audience.
“Adrian already asking to hold his little brother😉💙💙💙 new baby boy coming February 2018,” she wrote alongside a photo of her then-19-month-old son holding an ultrasound picture.
She also broke the news during the morning forecast on the ABC show, hinting at a baby bump as she projected the week’s weather.
“Another baby! Another boy!” she said after hugging her fellow anchors. “I feel good … five months left – [my belly is] gonna get big. That’s why I had to tell everybody because it’s already happening.”
In a recent sit-down with PEOPLE’s Celeb Parents Get Real, Zee revealed that the one experience from her first pregnancy she would want to relive were those first few moments after her son arrived.
“When I had a c-section and they brought [Adrian] over and they put him up to my face … that feeling haunts me in the best way. I want that feeling all the time,” she said.
“What happens inside you, you actually transform and your heart bursts,” continued the proud mom. “I thought I was gonna die, in the best way … that much love comes out of you. So I would re-do and relive that moment over and over if I could.”
