KUSA - Becky Ditchfield is pregnant and she decided to announce the gender of her baby for the first time on live television Friday morning.

At the end of the 6 a.m. newscast, Becky, along with her 9NEWS coworkers gathered around a paper easel, where the 9NEWS morning crew had cast their votes for the gender of her bundle of joy.

Becky had a creative way to announce it. She had bought a certain color of silly string and covered the bottle with blue and pink Duct Tape to throw everyone off the scent.

Then, she announced ... "IT'S A BOY!!"

Strings of blue Silly String rained down on the 9NEWS morning crew as everyone squealed in delight.

Congratulations, Becky, on your baby boy! The little mister is due Aug. 2.
