Margaret Brennan is going to be a mom!

PEOPLE confirms the Face the Nation star, 38, and husband Maj. Yado Yakub are expecting their first child.

“Yado and I are overjoyed about welcoming a baby boy to our family. Callie, our 2½-year-old rescue dog is getting a human! We are excited and humbled to become parents and look forward to Face the Nation’s newest viewer joining us in September,” Brennan tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Brennan will also share the baby news on Monday’s episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

“I do have some breaking personal news. My husband and I are going to be welcoming a baby in September, a baby boy! Do you have any advice?” she tells host Stephen Colbert before he gifts her a onesie with the late-night show’s logo.

“My only advice is to get some sleep now,” Colbert jokes.
