Juliechen_lesmoonves_cbsupntca06_240 Julie Chen is pregnant.

The news anchor held her belly on Tuesday's "The Early Show" on CBS and said, "It wasn't a big Sunday at the buffet table," confirming an earlier report by the New York Post that she's expecting.

This will be the first child together for Chen, 39, and her husband, CBS chief Les Moonves, 60. He has three grown children from a previous marriage.

The couple tied the knot in December 2004.

Chen, who is also host for the network's reality show "Big Brother," is due in October and will be taking maternity leave from "The Early Show," but not "Big Brother."
