When is ginger due?

Your favorite Good Morning America meteorologist Ginger Zee will soon be a mom-of-two! The 37-year-old previously announced she’s pregnant with her second baby during her on-air weather report on Aug. 14, and now, fans are wondering: when is she due?

Ginger officially left GMA for maternity leave on Thursday, Feb. 8, and the cast sent her off with a sweet baby shower. Before her exit, Ginger said on-screen, “The big day is tomorrow… we cannot wait to meet this little guy. I was telling Robin on the way in, I think it really hit me last night. I didn’t sleep much, I was like ‘Wait, I’m going to have another baby. It just hit me.’” By the sounds of it, she’s expecting baby No. 2 today!

Even though she’s seemingly welcoming another little one today, the TV star went out last night to attend the Go Red for Women Fashion Show in NYC — and looked stunning! The expectant mom was glowing on the red carpet in her crimson attire. Leave it to Ginger to look so beautiful just hours before popping!

At the time of her announcement over the summer, Ginger gushed, “In the southwest, right about here, and then this area, right about here, are going to have a shadow from my belly, because I’m pregnant,” Ginger said while presenting the current “shadow forecast” around the country. How funny!

Throughout her entire pregnancy, Ginger has been keeping us in the loop with a plethora of baby bump photos and videos. She’s even documented how she stayed fit while pregnant! “3.5 weeks to go! Trying to maintain but I can’t wait to get in a big workout post-baby,” she wrote on Instagram a few weeks ago next to a video of her exercising.

Shortly after her announcement, the former Dancing With the Stars contestant took to Instagram to share a sweet snapshot of her firstborn child, two-year-old son Adrian Benjamin Colonomos, holding a sonogram photo of his unborn baby sibling. “Adrian already asking to hold his little brother. New baby boy coming February 2018,” she captioned the pic. So adorable!

Ginger and her husband, Ben Aaron Colonomos, 36, married in June 2014 and welcomed Adrian in December 2015. It’s unclear how long Ginger will take off of GMA once her little boy arrives. She’s also yet to reveal any baby names! One thing we do know: we can’t wait to meet Ginger and Ben’s adorable new addition very, very soon!

GMA’s Ginger Zee Shuts Down Pregnancy Speculation, Talks ‘Difficult’ Past Battle with Anorexia

Ginger Zee is not apologizing for her body.

The Good Morning America meteorologist, 38, addressed speculation over whether she was pregnant on social media Tuesday morning, shutting down a user who tweeted at her, “Did you announce another pregnancy and I missed it. Gold dress shows it. Congrats.”

“Yes! I’m due in a month!!! So glad you asked,” Zee replied sarcastically, before going on to say she was “just kidding” and not expecting again. (She shares two sons with husband Ben Aaron: Miles Macklin, 21 months, and Adrian Benjamin, 4 next month.)

“That’s called a woman who just went on 11 planes just last week, didn’t work out, needs new spanx and had two children. HAPPY TUESDAY!” she concluded.

The weather expert also touched on her past battle with an eating disorder, explaining to another fan who apologized for “jump to conclusions” about her body, “Wish it didn’t affect me but I’ll probably be even harder on myself — anorexia is a difficult disease but I am recovered and these types of comments make me rely heavily on my therapy and self confidence I’ve been working on for years.”

Fellow meteorologist Karen Rogers chimed in on the conversation to praise Zee and chastise those who would come to her with such an inquiry.

“Oh Dear Lord … I saw @Ginger_Zee this morning and thought ‘Wow! She looks fabulous,’ ” Rogers wrote. “It’s awful to be scrutinized when you’re doing your job so beautifully. People listen up … unless you’re her husband, asking a woman if she’s pregnant is NEVER OK!”

“I wish I didn’t have that seed of anorexia that still tells me lies — I’m constantly keeping it muted but this challenges me,” Zee replied in a tweet to Rogers. “Thank you for your support.”

Zee has been open in the past about her struggle with anorexia, which she experienced from age 10 to her early teens, she shared in 2016 during her time on Dancing with the Stars. (She and partner Val Chmerkovskiy placed third in the competition.)

“I didn’t choose to get anorexia. I may have made some childhood-like choices to try to control something. ‘I know what I’ll do, I’ll just not eat,’ ” she wrote in an essay for ABC News. “That was the initial point, but then it spiraled and became a disease — not a choice by any means. It was a horrendous spiral that could have taken my life. My mom was scared she was going to lose her daughter.”

“Anorexia is a real disease,” Zee continued. “The choice you do have is asking for help. With therapy and support, I was able to make a dent in the disease. It has been a 25-year process, but therapy, maturity, the support of my family and having my beautiful child has allowed me to get to this point where I am ready to talk about it.”

“I want anyone suffering with this terrible disease to know that they are not alone,” she added. “All you need to do is reach out for help. Tell someone, bring it up to someone you trust. There is a bright future for you and you can overcome this. I feel so fortunate to be on the real road to recovery. I hope this can start a conversation for someone who is struggling right now. That would be huge. That would make me feel like this is worth sharing.”

GOOD Morning America’s Ginger Zee has snapped back at pregnancy rumours and spoke about her eating disorder battle.

The meteorologist, 38, fumed after being questioned by a fan who said her gold dress “shows it” – referring to a baby bump.

The Twitter user also said “congrats” to Ginger, who sarcastically replied: “Yes! I’m due in a month!!!”

“So glad you asked,” the mom-of-two added before stating, “Just kidding – I’m not pregnant.”

Ginger said: “That’s called a woman who just went on 11 planes just last week, didn’t work out, needs new spanx and had two children.”

The star signed-off with “HAPPY TUESDAY!”


Later Ginger revealed that comments like the one she received make her “even harder” on herself.

She spoke about her self-esteem struggles, which originated from her battle with an eating disorder.

“Anorexia is a difficult disease. But I am recovered,” Ginger said.

The weather expert previously said that she experienced the mental health issue from the age of 10 to her early teen years.

“These types of comments make me rely heavily on my therapy and self confidence I’ve been working on for years,” Ginger explained.

Perhaps it’s highlighted in my satin dress today, but no, not pregnant.

She received a mixture of support and some continuing quiz her about the pregnancy rumors on Twitter.

One fan apologized and said that he wouldn’t “jump to conclusions” in future.

Another said that they could “only wish” to look like her after having kids.

Later, Ginger responded that she was proud of her upper c-section area.

She wrote: “It birthed two babies. Perhaps it’s highlighted in my satin dress today, but no, not pregnant.”

“GMA” meteorologist Ginger Zee gave birth to her second son, Miles Macklin, in February. Zee and her husband, Ben Aaron, are also the parents to 2-year-old Adrian. Zee returned to “GMA” today after three months of maternity leave. Here, she shares her journey of returning to work.

Monday May 7.

Mommy goes back to work.

And let me be clear. I’m a worker. I love my job.

Since I graduated college I’ve rarely taken a vacation and when I do it’s to visit family in Michigan for a week. Excluding my two-week honeymoon, I’ve worked almost every day of my life and enjoyed it immensely.

But the past 12 weeks on maternity leave have been absolute bliss. Miles is a tall, beautiful baby, smiling and laughing and so full of joy.

Going back to work this time I still feel a mixture of emotions: Excited, scared, guilty.

And this isn’t my first time.

When I got pregnant with my son Adrian, now 2, all the anxieties of having a child were eventually compounded by the frightening realization that I would be taking a significant amount of time off from work.

Far from unique, I worried about the safety of my job. I toyed with whether or not to take six or 12 weeks or somewhere in between. I didn’t want people to forget who I was because I went and had a baby.

All irrational fears, of course.

I quickly learned that not all of that would be in my control and amazing opportunities would present themselves in the wake of having Adrian that would change whatever I thought I wanted.

I had a Caesarean section with Adrian so that automatically pushed my leave to eight weeks. So many people weighed in, “You have to take the full time; You’ll never get that time with your baby back”; “They grow up so fast, take as much time as you possibly can.”

Then I was offered “Dancing With the Stars,” and I couldn’t pass that up. So six weeks after Adrian was born, I started crisscrossing the nation, Los Angeles to New York, not only returning to “GMA” but doing another full-time job and show.

Sounds wild, and it was, but it taught me something. I learned focus and found such joy in becoming a parent.

It was the first time I was genuinely living “in the moment” because I had to! The moments were all so important and I was so grateful for time with Adrian, time rehearsing with Val , time with my husband and time back at “GMA.” After “DWTS” ended, I started writing my books.

Then I got pregnant with Miles. By choice, but a little sooner than expected.

Ben and I have been so fortunate to be able to conceive and we didn’t want to wait too long after Adrian to have another child.

This time I planned to take the full 12 weeks. Then I realized I had written two books.

A memoir that we pushed up the date of release because I got pregnant and a children’s book that I’ve been dreaming about since I started in this business. That book would release at the end of my maternity leave.

So here I am, on an airplane flying to San Francisco for a book tour stop, my breast milk stored in a cooler in the overhead compartment above my head, realizing that I’m a worker AND a mom. And that’s OK!

I have an incredible job that has allowed me to utilize this platform to write a children’s book, “Chasing Helicity,” that will help inspire kids in science.

I’m living my dreams both personally and professionally. And that’s OK.

Our maternity leave and parenting “stories” don’t all have to be the exact same to deem us good parents. I know the bond I have with my sons and it’s beyond my wildest dreams.

My husband is on hiatus from his show so we have extra help for the next two months and so much love to go around. The kids will be more than well-taken care of.

That doesn’t take away my mommy guilt though. This book tour has been a shock to my system: A reminder that I go back to work Monday and real life is starting back up again.

I’m sure when I hear that alarm at 4:15 a.m. Monday, it will be an appropriate combination of feelings: Excitement like the first day back to school and sadness that I won’t hear Adrian’s little voice say “Mommy” from his crib. Nor will I see those plentiful morning smiles from Miles.

But I’ll be seeing the other smiles that have gotten me here. The smiles of Michael, Robin, my team behind the scenes like Samantha, Max, Lisa, Jamie and Juanita.

I worked so hard to get to this point where I can have a family and a career. I ignored my personal life for years so I could build my career.

Then they both came together and life couldn’t be sweeter.

When people ask, “How do you do it all?” I simply answer with an honest “I don’t.”

I do all I can when I can and give myself grace. I have set up my children’s lives with a super supportive, loving partner in Ben. We have an incredible nanny and we, the team, are going to be just fine.

And I’ll get to see those smiles and hear that “Mommy” as soon as I step in the door after work.

My mom worked “24s” as a neonatal nurse practitioner, meaning she worked 24 hours, which was always 30 by the time she got home, bleary-eyed and cranky.

She was “gone” for at least 36 hours, but that didn’t change our relationship. We are still incredibly close and she set a wonderful example for me that you can work and be a great mom, too.

My family at work is my family as well, and we are going to have a great time Monday.

I just hope no one gets annoyed with me playing videos and flashing pics of my new little babe at every turn 🙂

Scripps-owned DIY Network will premiere new series Renovation Realities: Ben & Ginger on Saturday, May 6, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

The series stars married couple Ginger Zee and Ben Aaron. Zee is chief meteorologist for Good Morning America while Aaron reports for NBC and syndicated entertainment magazine Extra.

Aaron also is working with Scripps on a new lifestyle talk show co-starring Kellie Pickler to be shot in Nashville. Scripps announced the talker at NATPE and says it plans to reveal more details about the show’s launch in coming weeks.

In the four-part series, Zee and Aaron leave New York City and head to the suburbs where they are faced with renovating a fixer upper. Along the way, Zee’s Good Morning America co-stars, including Robin Roberts, Amy Robach and Lara Spencer, come on board to lend their help.

Zee is the handy one of the couple, having helped her parents growing up with drywall, tiling and painting, while Aaron says “I thought ‘escrow’ was a soup.”

In the end, the couple works side by side to transform an 1,800-square-foot house into a three-bedroom, three-bathroom home with such amenities as a walk-in closet, laundry room, mud room and outdoor patio.

Visiting Ginger Zee’s newly renovated upstate New York home

We know ginger does because she’s been hard at work, you know she works hard here at “Gma” and also been renovating her new home. We got to visit and left-hand a hand. I don’t know how much of a help we were but we tried. We sure did have fun. She has done so much with the place and we are finally going to see the finished product and she joins us now from ka tone that, New York. Good morning, ginger. Good morning, you guys. I am so happy to be welcoming you into my home. I’m going to step in my home because basically this is all new. That fireplace that outdoor fireplace, the pergola, the path I’ve been working on, I’ll tell you about that but this is my living room now. I want to show you before what it looked like. My living room was really dark. It was very old. It needed a lot of updating and just had those small windows that made it kind of cave-like. Here’s what we did. We took that, blew it out and made it a three-pane glass sliding door so lets a ton more light and allows you to have that entertaining space flow into the outdoors and feels like you’re in the woods really or kind of. And then this room really opened up and we changed it big time. Look at the old picture of the wood burring stove. I don’t know if you can see it. That’s the before and after the whole living room but the close-up of the wood burring testify is actually just a really nasty thing that made the whole house smell. We replaced it here obviously with a big bold statement piece. This is a limestone, Francois, sounds fancy but more stonework around there and not only did that make this long but you need that statement so that’s one of the big things we did. You know what, you’ve got the seal of approval from Lara Spencer. She’s been nodding along. That’s huge when — ? Ging, major thumbs up. I can’t hear you guys but I’ll go ahead and imagine that we’re going to talk about my next project because the project that I’m so proud of is the one I just got done finishing, my back is still aching working on it last night. We had a bunch of fallen trees around our property from sandy, actually so there’s a weather connection and those trees, you know I love to reuse things, I chain saw cut them up into six-inch rounds and treated them with something called pentacil and put them in a path and I’m still working on it. That’s the halfway but you can see it from above and used our drone shot. Mulch on the top that gives you a natural reused look. I love that. Ginger, that is a great idea. You have to tell me that product name again later. Unfortunately she cannot hear us. There are a lot of befores and afters and see so much on the show. A quick look at what the kitchen is looking like and easy pop of color. My biggest thing for you all. Dive in. Change your space. Great, why not? Why not. You did a great job. You can see how all the magic happened on ginger’s new show “DIY series renovation realities, “Ben and ginger” Saturday, may 6th at 8:00 P.M. I cannot believe the transformation. You know what, I think it’s great you went over and helped. George and I will go over when

Good Morning America chief meteorologist Ginger Zee and her husband, NYC newsman Ben Aaron, weren’t exactly prepared for the struggles of remodeling their suburban New York home.

Although Zee had some previous experience renovating properties with her parents as a kid, Aaron embarked on the process with a slight naiveté.

“I figured that if you want to renovate a house a couple of twins come and do it for you,” he tells PEOPLE, making reference to Property Brothers stars Drew and Jonathan Scott.“I didn’t realize how it works, so I didn’t have any hesitations.”

He quickly learned that it took “an extraordinary amount of work and frustration,” to transform their 1,800-square-foot fixer upper into a three-bedroom, three-bathroom dream home that was a better fit for the couple and their one-year-old son, Adrian, than their small city apartment.

“Moving from the city, of course everybody wants more space,” Zee says. “But I think having a lawn and a neighborhood for Adrian to grow up in was most important.”

The ups and downs of the process, which included everything from building bookshelves to removing asbestos in a window, are all documented in the family’s new DIY Network show, Renovation Realities: Ben & Ginger. And while it was certainly stressful, Zee and Aaron are confident the end result will be worth the watch.

“I find home renovations almost traumatic,” Zee says. “But people can create something great.”

Renovation Realities: Ben & Ginger premieres May 6th at 8:00 p.m. EST on DIY Network.

ABC’s Good Morning America meteorologist Ginger Zee is getting married to NBC’s Ben Aaron. The bigger news for Northern Michigan? They are getting married here in late spring. We checked in with NYC wedding planner Francesco Bilotto for some details:

You were friends with Ginger before you were her wedding planner, yes?
We were acquaintances when we both worked in Chicago but we didn’t know each other well. Then one day we ran into each other on the bustling streets of New York’s Upper West Side and we reconnected. She’s become a close friend—as has Ben.

Ginger obviously has a great love of Lake Michigan from being raised nearby in Grand Rapids, Michigan? But you, too, have a connection with the lake?
Yes, I was raised nearby in Kenosha, Wisconsin. I’ve done a number of weddings on Lake Michigan at parks in the Chicago area.

As the story goes, she met someone else the same day that she met you.
She met Ben the same day she met me. So I like to joke that when she says it was the happiest day of her life, she means because she met me!

You three get together socially then?
Yes, it’s been amazingly fun. Just the perfect little storm that day. I actually helped her out the first time she cooked him dinner … I took her shopping for matching dinner napkins and bowls. I told her, ‘This is how you build the illusion of being a cool wife,’ . But after the big reveal, dessert in a martini glass, he figured it out—I was busted.

Obviously, Ginger is all about the weather, how is that going to play into the event?
They’ll be groupings of white floral balls on the table symbolizing clouds and the undercurrent of weather. Also, her shoes are going to customized with Swarovski crystals to look like storm clouds and there will be tornadoes on her heels.

We hear Ginger is hoping to use as much local talent as possible to produce her big event.
Yes, Lindsay Kaler, the events manager at the Lake Michigan venue we are working with, has been amazing. They are planning a virtual tasting for us so we can at least see the food even if we can’t taste—they are like score! we get to eat it! Also, I’ve been working with Jennifer Haf of BLOOM floral design on the flowers. She’s fabulous! The cake is going to be by Simply Sweet by Jessica and we are going to get some papery from Tableau.

GMA’s Ginger Zee gives birth to second child

ABC’s “Good Morning America” chief meteorologist Ginger Zee gave birth to her second child on Friday, February 9. She and her husband, Ben Aaron, welcomed another baby boy. Their first son, Adrian, was born in December 2015.

On Thursday, Ginger’s co-workers gave her a baby shower one day before she was scheduled for a Caesarian section. Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Michael Strahan, and Lara Spencer all gave her a good send-off during the morning talk show.

Part of the celebration was presenting her with a cake made out of diapers. She joked that the diapers would last only one week. Each of her co-workers gave her one of their favorite baby books.

On Thursday night, Ginger participated in her last public event before giving birth. She walked the runway in high heels at the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women’s Red Dress Collection show in New York City just hours before she gave birth.

She admitted later that her ankles were swollen, but she put on heels and walked the runway anyway because it would make her feel better.

While waiting for her new baby

Ginger knew her exact due date would be February 9, but she and Ben had not decided on a name. A week ago, the 37-year-old mother of two sons said they have three names picked out, but they were going to wait until they met their new son before they named him.

While waiting for her new baby to arrive, the meteorologist has been promoting her new book, “Natural Disaster: I Cover Them. I Am One.” The title is a play on words relating to Ginger’s job and details about dark periods in her life when she suffered from depression. She shared how she attempted suicide at the age of 21.

Ginger and Ben Aaron have been married for four years. Now their family has gone from just three to a family of four.

With her husband and two sons, Ginger is outnumbered. However, she doesn’t mind at all.

Zee’s replacement while on maternity leave

Rob Marciano will cover Ginger’s weekday position Monday through Friday while Sam Champion will take care of Rob’s weekend weather duty. Sam is returning to ABC for a few months starting this weekend.

Zee replaced weathercaster Champion when she became the permanent meteorologist on “Good Morning America.” Champion spent 25 years at ABC, including seven years at GMA. He left the network in 2013 for a position on The Weather Channel. He hosted a morning show and a prime-time show for three years. He returned to ABC two years ago when Ginger went on maternity leave to give birth to her first son who was born in December 2015.
