In March, Haines revealed the sex of her baby on air with help from her costar Michael Strahan and fellow daytime television star Maury Povich.

“Now I get to find out if I’m having a boy or a girl right here in front of America,” she said before cutting into a cake to see if the inside contained pink or blue frosting.

But in an unexpected twist, the center of the dessert was actually green! “That’s not even a color that’s been arbitrarily or absurdly assigned to sex,” Haines jokingly lamented. “I don’t know what to do with this!”

“This is serious,” said Povich, 80. “We’re going to have to do this the old-fashioned way: my envelope.” He then proceeded to pull a blue card out of an envelope as confetti of the same color rained from the ceiling.

In early January, PEOPLE exclusively confirmed that the television journalist and her husband, a lawyer, were expecting baby No. 3 together.

“We just figured out our one-on-one defense and now we have to move to a zone,” Haines told PEOPLE at the time. “Max and I are super excited while also being terrified! We are so grateful.”

During a May episode of their daytime talk show, Strahan, 47, surprised his co-host with a baby shower that included some very special guests: her high-school friends.

The five women appeared from backstage, leading a then-pregnant Haines to tearfully embrace her five pals after an initial shocked reaction.
