NBC News correspondent and "Weekend Today" anchor Jenna Wolfe is used to going on some crazy adventures in her reporting, but now she's embarking on her biggest adventure of all -- motherhood!

Wolfe and fellow NBC News correspondent Stephanie Gosk not only came out of the closet as a lesbian couple Wednesday, but they also announced that they're expecting a baby girl together.

“This is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to us,” Wolfe told People exclusively in its new issue on newsstands this week. “But I don’t want to bring my daughter into a world where I’m not comfortable telling everyone who I am and who her mother is.”

Wolfe, 39, and Gosk, 40, have been together for three years, but admits that their crazy schedules have made starting a family a difficult task.

“We were constantly on the road, juggling a thousand balls at once,” Wolfe explained. “It’s a miracle we got it all together … In a way, we can’t wait to start … Stephanie keeps saying, ‘Hurry up! What’s taking so long?’ And I’m like, ‘[The baby's] cooking!’”

Wolfe also shared the news on the "Today" show couch Wednesday morning.

"I have some big news, this is actually big for me. I’m actually pregnant. I'm quite pregnant, in fact. My girlfriend Stephanie Gosk, who works here also at NBC, we're expecting a baby girl at the end of August," Wolfe told Matt Lauer. "Stephanie's extremely adventurous, she's been all over the world. And you know me, there's not a building I haven't jumped off of … so, for us, this is nothing like that. This is the adventure of a lifetime."

Wolfe added that she's going to be blogging about her experiences. "I know I'm not the first person to have a baby, but I'm having a baby for the first time …. This is a journey that I'm very excited to take."

Wolfe is due on August 27. She told People that she and Gosk plan to wed in the future.
