CNN anchor Erin Burnett welcomed her first child – a boy – with husband David Rubulotta on Friday.

“Dave and I welcomed a healthy, happy baby boy at 9:47 p.m. Friday November 29th,” the Erin Burnett OutFront host tells PEOPLE. “He weighed in at 8 lbs., 10 oz.”

The 37-year-old – who married Rubulotta, a managing director at Citigroup, in December – announced that she was expecting in June.

“We’ve always wanted this and we’re very lucky,” she said at the time.

Burnett was overjoyed to hold her baby in her arms, telling PEOPLE, “Seeing him for the first time was the most awe-inspiring, joyful moment of our lives.”
