Lisa Ling and Anderson Cooper Lisa Ling and Anderson Cooper

A baby girl is on the way for TV journalist Lisa Ling and her husband, physician Paul Song, the ex-View host told Anderson Cooper on his daytime show Wednesday.

"I was trying to keep it quiet for a long time, but now I'm getting to a point where I just look like I have a beer belly," she said. "So I figured, I better share it publicly before people actually think I have this beer belly."

Ling, 39, also brought along visuals — namely a video sonogram of her baby girl, who can be seen jumping around in Ling's womb. "I just hope that this doesn't mean she's a complete spastic child when she grows up," Ling said. Hey, it's never too early in a child's life to start prepping for the Olympics, right?

Ling, who now hosts Our America with Lisa Ling on OWN, previously miscarried at seven weeks in 2010. "I felt more like a failure than I'd felt in a very long time," Ling, said at the time on The View. "When I heard the doctor say there was no heartbeat it was like bam, like a knife through the heart."
