Couric is mom to daughters Ellie, 32, and Carrie, 28, whom she shares with late husband Jay Monahan, who died of colon cancer in 1998 at age 42.

The mom of two announced her daughter Ellie's pregnancy by sharing the moment she first learned that Ellie is expecting.

Along with Couric's other daughter, Ellie told her mom the news before the trio attended a Taylor Swift Eras Tour show last year.

Before heading to the concert, Ellie and Carrie participated in one of the tour’s most popular traditions, bringing beaded friendship bracelets to trade — and used the accessory to tell their mom the happy baby news.

Couric posted a video of the moment, which appeared to be captured by Ellie’s husband of two years, Mark Dobrosky.

In the sweet clip, Carrie handed her mom a bracelet and the former Today anchor thought out loud as she tried to decipher what it said (“brand, brandy, B, granny…”) before saying what the beads actually spelled: “Granny to be.”

Still laughing at her attempts to decrypt the bracelet’s message, Couric’s face went blank as she realized what the message meant.

Then Ellie said, “I’m pregnant,” and her jaw dropped.

"You are?” Couric said, covering her mouth, seemingly in shock. “Wow.”

After the mom-to-be asked Couric if she was “freaked out,” the journalist said, “No,” and laughed again.
