The Blacklist actress Megan Boone was full of surprises when she stopped in to chat with Kelly Rippa and Michael Strahan on the LIVE with Kelly and Michael morning show on Monday.

Not only did the expecting mother reveal the sex of her baby during her appearance on January 18, she announced her engagement to the child’s father, artist Dan Estabrook, too!

“I haven’t told anybody yet, but I’m going to have a girl,” she shared with the two hosts.

Confirming the news once again on Instagram, Boone later shared a sweet photo of herself cuddling up with a gift from Rippa and Strahan, a white teddy bear with a pink-lined bib.

“Thank you for my daughter’s bear @kellyripa and @michaelstrahan- you two are the kindest and I love coming to see you,” she captioned the picture.

After dropping the word “fiance” while sharing her baby news, Rippa jumped at the opportunity to ask Boone about the 32-year-old actress’ engagement to Estabrook.

“We definitely were in it for the long haul when we made a human!” the expecting mother joked.

Though the My Bloody Valentine actress did not share details on how her future husband proposed, she explained that the two got engaged at around the same time that they discovered their first child was on the way.

While Boone could neither confirm nor deny whether her baby bump would create a new (pregnant) plot line for her Blacklist character, FBI Agent Elizabeth Keen, the actress did mention, “There are a lot of ways to hide a pregnancy,” citing Kerry Washington on Scandal as an example.

However the story goes, we’re excited to hear ALL of Megan Boone and Dan Estabrook’s incredible news, and can’t wait to see more of her in action on NBC’s The Blacklist!
