The Today show’s Sunday anchor said she and Gosk, a foreign correspondent at NBC, have been together three years, plan to wed and embarked on “Operation Baby” in December.

“My girlfriend, Stephanie Gosk, and I are expecting a baby girl the end of August,” Wolfe, 39, wrote in the debut post for her new pregnancy blog.

“We felt like we wanted to share our adventures with a wide-eyed, little person,” she blogged. “The more we talked about it, the better the idea seemed.”

Wolfe underwent artificial insemination with an anonymous donor, she told People magazine.

“We were constantly on the road, juggling a thousand balls at once,” she told the mag. “It’s a miracle we got it all together.”

‘Weekend Today’s’ Jenna Wolfe delivers her big news on Wednesday’s ‘Today’ show. She announced she’s having a baby girl with girlfriend, NBC correspondent Stephanie Gosk.

She said while Gosk keeps telling her to “hurry up” and deliver already, she thought it was important to tell her story first.

“This is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to us,” the beautiful brunette known as Today’s resident daredevil told People. “But I don’t want to bring my daughter into a world where I’m not comfortable telling everyone who I am and who her mother is.”

Gosk, 40, called the announcement “a spectacular moment for us.”

“The beauty is that we live in a time where there’s no need for secrecy,” Gosk, who’s reported from war-torn countries, told People.

The expectant parents said they do plan to tie the knot eventually, but for now the focus is on their baby.

“For a long time I had feared I would never have a child,” Gosk admitted.

Wolfe also used the first installment of her new Today show blog to express newfound respect for all women who’ve experienced morning sickness.

“This baby doesn’t care that I was in phenomenal shape before getting pregnant. She doesn’t care that I had a near perfect diet. She made the first four months brutal for me … B-R-U-T-A-L,” Wolfe blogged.

“There were days when all I could eat were Saltine crackers, Apple Jacks dry cereal and plain pasta,” conceded the fearless newscaster who’s swum with killer sharks and jumped off buildings.

She admitted she’s never changed a diaper before and doesn’t understand what a breast pump is, but she’s happy to learn.

“As a kid, I would have chosen raising my adrenaline over raising children any day of the week. But then a funny thing happened on my way to adulthood … I grew up. I ran smack into the old nursery rhyme: “First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes Jenna pushing a baby carriage,” she blogged.

She said while her life “didn’t quite unfold as rhymed,” the result is “awfully close.”
