Stefan revealed in May that he and his wife were expecting their third baby boy.

"Breaking News: Henry and Sam are excited to welcome their baby brother this fall. And they're even helping us with names 😂," Stefan, a local broadcast news anchor in Chicago, wrote on Instagram.

In one cute clip, Henry says the baby "is in my mom's belly" currently and says he'll name his new little brother "Popcorn." The siblings held ultrasound images to break the news.

During an April appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Lester, 62, shared that his grandsons call him "Granddude," adding that the little ones make him "melt." He said, "That's the thing about kids, it just takes you out of everything else going on in your life."

On The Tonight Show in April 2020, Lester proudly talked about his grandkids helping their dad broadcast from home during the pandemic.

"It warmed my heart because it immediately made me think of a picture that was taken when I was an anchor in Chicago at the CBS station," said Lester, who is also dad to son Cameron with his wife Carol.

"One of them, I clearly saw he had the bug for the camera, and of course that's Stefan," he added. "It was really heartwarming to think back, God I remember when you guys were little and we did pictures like that, and now there's my grandson."
