CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Lots of people have been trying to guess if anchor Christine Nelson will have a little boy or girl.  At the end of 'WBTV News This Morning' on Friday, Feb. 18, she finally made the big announcement.

Christine and her husband, William Sperow, already have a little girl named Camryn Alexis who was born July of 2009.  Camryn was born two months early and spent a short time in the neonatal intensive care unit. Now she is 1 and ½ years old, walking and talking, and loves to dance around the house.

Before Friday's big announcement, the WBTV Morning crew posted the question of whether she was having a boy or girl on WBTV's Facebook page.

Forty viewers thought she was having a boy, and 30 guessed she's having a girl.

Meteorologist Al Conklin, Traffic Reporter Liz Horton and Nelson's co-anchor John Carter all guessed what they thought she is having.  Al and Liz said they think she's having a boy.  John said he thinks she's having another girl.

Christine had an ultrasound on Thursday and that's when she learned she's having a boy.

"My husband is outnumbered with three girls in the house already--me, our first child and his mother," she said.

With the addition of their baby boy, Christine said that'll help even the score a bit.

Christine said she'd be going to Home Depot to look for blue paint this weekend.

She is due on the 4th of July. (Click here for Christine's bio)

WBTV Anchor Molly Grantham is also pregnant, as we announced back in November.  She is due in April. (Click here for Molly's bio)

She ISN'T going to find out the gender of the baby, saying she prefers to be surprised.

"I've been really lucky so far," she said.  "I'm not tired or sick – I feel great.  I know it sounds ridiculous, but the only thing significantly different in my life these past months is that I can't eat sushi.  That's the one thing the doctor adamantly banned."

The biggest challenge of her pregnancy?

"Finding professional maternity clothes," she says.  "If you have any ideas, feel free to email me!"
