Opening up to her longtime friend Anderson Cooper on Anderson Live, TV journalist Lisa Ling announced today that she’s expecting her first child with her husband Paul Song. Even better, Lisa shared the baby’s gender — it’ll be a darling little girl for the first-time parents!

Lisa has been public with her pregnancy struggles, speaking out in 2010 after she suffered a miscarriage when she was 7 weeks pregnant. At the time, she admitting feeling “like a failure.” “When I heard the doctor say there was no heartbeat it was like bam, like a knife through the heart,” Lisa told People.

So this news clearly brings extra joy to the couple. Lisa shared with Anderson, “I’ve been really lucky with this pregnancy — I didn’t have any morning sickness.” She also talked up one of the many physical perks of pregnancy, declaring, “My boobs are enormous!”

Girl, we’ve been there — ain’t it great?
