‘The Breakfast Club’ Co-Host Jess Hilarious Announces Pregnancy On Air

The Breakfast Club‘s newest co-host Jess Hilarious celebrated her birthday by announcing her pregnancy live on-air.

On Tuesday (February 13), the comedian’s boyfriend Chris called into the radio show to wish her a happy birthday, and concluded his kind words by revealing they have a bundle of joy on the way.


“Hey, baby. It’s your man. I wanted to call and say, ‘Happy birthday,’” Chris said. “I know it’s a special day for you. I can’t wait to see you. I’m so proud of you. I love that you’re staying divine all the time, and you’re such an amazing woman. I can’t wait to see you later, and I’m so excited for our little bundle of joy, babe.”

At first Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy acted surprised at the reveal, but then seemingly admitted they already knew, before celebrating with Jess.


“Yes I am three months,” Jess confirmed. “So I’m 13 weeks. Thank you baby, I love you!”

Jess Hilarious debuted as the new co-host of The Breakfast Club on February 5, filling the slot that Angela Yee vacated in December 2022.

The Baltimore native is a comedian and actress who has appeared on shows like Rel and Wild ‘N Out and has more than 5.5 million Instagram followers.


“I’m very excited to have Jess Hilarious join The Breakfast Club. She is a force in her own right, an actress, comedian, podcaster, and now, the co-host of The Breakfast Club,” Thea Mitchem, iHeartMedia Executive Vice President of Programming, said in a statement.

“Jess was the standout choice to join Charlamagne and DJ Envy to build upon The Breakfast Club’s legacy of entertaining, informing and enlightening the community.”


The comedian weighed in as well, saying: “I’m looking forward to joining forces with one of the largest media platforms. I’m confident that taking the third seat at The Breakfast Club will show people that Jess Hilarious is not just comedy, but culture.”

The road to Hilarious joining the program was seemingly a rocky one. She was a frequent guest host throughout 2023 and actually announced in December that she had been hired permanently.

However, in the weeks following her announcement, the radio station kept quiet and fans grew confused. Her soon-to-be co-hosts did as well.

Asked by TMZ about the host situation last month, Charlamagne said: “I would really like to know. Everybody saw us rotating guest hosts last year and we said we were gonna start 2024 off with a new host and that hasn’t happened yet.”


The broadcaster also added that he was “not happy” with the situation and said there would be no more guest hosts. “I am done with the rotating of the guest hosts,” he stated.
