Erin Andrew has reportedly welcomed a baby.

The 45-year-old sportscaster had a child with 41-year-old husband Jarret Stoll via surrogate, PageSix claimed on Monday morning.

The Dancing With the Stars veteran became a mom within the past couple of weeks, the site added.

And the name of the child is Mack, it was also alleged.

There was even a baby shower held in June at Harriet’s in West Hollywood, the site claimed.

Erin has been open about how she hoped to become a mother one day, and even admitted to using IVF for almost a decade which she called ‘challenging.’

DailyMail.com has reached out to her rep for comment.

In 2018, she told her friend and Fox Sports colleague Michael Strahan on GMA that she very much wanted to become a mother.

Earlier this year she said IVF was hard on her.

Erin wed longtime boyfriend and former NHL player Stoll in an intimate ceremony in 2017.

The former Dancing With The Stars host and the Canadian athlete tied the knot in Big Sky, Montana.

In 2021, Andrews talked her fertility struggle nearly five years after she beat cancer.

The sportscaster, who froze her eggs before she was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2016, wrote about the ‘time-consuming and emotionally draining process’ of IVF in a personal essay published on Bulletin.

Andrews explained that she has been going through these treatments since she was 35 while trying to conceive with her husband.

At the time she was on her 7th round.

‘My body is kind of stacked against me. I have been trying to do IVF treatment for a while now, but sometimes it doesn’t go the way you want it. Your body just doesn’t allow it,’ she wrote at the time.

‘Every cycle is different in a woman’s body, so some months are better than others. When I heard this was the best time to go through another treatment, I had to figure it out all over again.

‘How am I going to juggle this treatment on top of my work schedule? I got so stressed out. When this happens, it really makes you question: is it the future of my family or is it my job?’

Andrews explained that women in the sports industry often ‘feel the need to keep things like this quiet,’ but she noted that there are also ‘so many other women who maybe put their careers on the back burner because they don’t want to miss out on any opportunities.’

She pointed out that it is ‘so common that people are starting families late and put so many other aspects of their lives on hold.’

For her seventh round of IVF, she decided to be open with her show producers that she would be coming to work ‘a little later than normal’ because of her daily fertility appointments — and she is ‘thankful’ that she did.

‘They encouraged me to be open about it because this is real life,’ she said. ‘It’s not like I’m leaving to go take a hot yoga class, I’m trying to have a baby. I am not ashamed, and I want to be vocal and honest about this.’

Andrews recalled how she used to find it ’embarrassing’ when her name was called out loud in the waiting room.

‘It makes me think, “I want this to be quiet, I don’t want people to know,” but I don’t care anymore!’ she wrote. ‘It sucks, but I am right there with all these other women in the waiting room. It’s a team that no one wants to be a part of. We’re all going through this and having a tough time. It can be so isolating, but in reality, we are all there together.’

In her essay, Andrews also touched upon the ‘mental and emotional toll’ IVF takes on the body, saying you ‘feel like s**t’ and it might not even amount to anything.

‘You could go through this whole experience and get absolutely nothing out of it — that’s the crazy part,’ she explained. ‘It’s a ton of money, it’s a ton of time, it’s a ton of mental and physical anguish. And more times than not, they’re unsuccessful. I think that’s why a lot of people choose to be quiet about it.’

Andrews said that going through her seventh round of IVF made her ask herself why she is keeping it ‘such a secret’ when she’s not alone in her fertility battle.

‘You never know who else is going through this; it could be another co-worker or the person making your coffee every day. There are more people than you think,’ she wrote.

‘Instead of feeling ashamed, we need to give ourselves more love,’ she added.

Andrews made the decision to freeze her eggs years before she was diagnosed with cervical cancer in September 2016.

At the time, she was covering the NFL season and hosting Dancing with the Stars, but she didn’t tell her co-workers about the scare.

She went first under the knife to remove the cancer on October 11, 2016, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

One doctor recommended a hysterectomy, which would have taken having kids naturally out of the realm of possibility.

Andrews decided to do another surgery to remove more of her cervix before taking the steps to do the hysterectomy, hoping that would get the rest of the cancer.

After a follow-up procedure that November, she got the good news from her doctor that the cancer was gone and she wouldn’t need radiation or chemotherapy.

The cancer diagnosis came just months after she won a very public stalking case against the Nashville Marriott and stalker Michael David Barrett, in which she was awarded $55 million.

Andrews previously discussed undergoing IVF in interviews, and in March 2021, she told Bustle that she and Stoll plan on having children in the near future.

‘My husband and I missed the whole social circle where people commiserate about their kids, homeschool, all that stuff,’ she said. ‘We’re going to have kids in the next couple of years, so maybe we’ll be in a different social scene.’
