The news host has been married to her husband, Brian Fichera, for almost a decade. To celebrate his birthday, she shared a sweet and heartfelt message to her husband on Instagram.

Dylan posted a video that captured Brian's goofy moments. She shared a note alongside the video saying:

There’s an easiness and a happiness to life that I wouldn’t know if you weren’t in it. Happy Birthday to the man who makes me smile every single day! Your joy is infectious and Calvin has already caught it.

Brian is seen in part of the video laughing with son, Calvin, who apparently has caught his dad’s playfulness.

It was very exciting news when the couple found out they were expecting their second child. Their dream of giving Calvin a baby brother or sister was finally going to come through.

Sadly, Dylan and Brian’s hopes were dashed when she started bleeding. The news host told her husband she thinks she has lost the baby.

But Brian assured his wife that she didn’t lose the baby, much less do anything wrong. The words of Dylan’s husband gave her comfort until the doctor confirmed the miscarriage.

It was heart-breaking for the family as Dylan suffered the miscarriage during her struggle with secondary infertility. She said:

I’m devastated, and I have to go to work on the Today Show and be happy and smiling and pretend like nothing’s wrong.

Although her condition is quite common, Dylan has decided to share her struggles because secondary fertility has not really been talked about or understood very well.

Losing a child is not what anyone should have to go through. Our thoughts and prayers are with Dylan and all those who might be going through this at the moment.
