As a host and correspondent for TV’s The Insider, Victoria Recaño is used to covering celebrity baby news. But now she’s making some news of her own.

“I am expecting our first baby!” she revealed Monday afternoon exclusively to PEOPLE. “The baby’s due in March, and I just literally told everybody in my office.”

“We’re really excited,” says Recaño, who is married to Tom Burwell, an account executive at Redwood Mortgage Corporation. “It was sort of an anniversary gift. I found out, literally, right after our seven-year anniversary!”

Since learning she was pregnant, Recaño has flown to South America on a previously planned vacation, and zipped all over the country for her job – from the Transformers 2 set in New Mexico, to Washington, D.C., to Sarah Palin’s hometown in Alaska.

“This baby’s been everywhere,” Recaño noted. And she doesn’t expect the pregnancy to slow her down. “My plan is to work all the way to the very end.”

But for Recaño, who hopes to find out the baby’s sex next month, this is just the beginning. “My husband and I want more than one. At least two or three,” she says. “One’s a good start.”
