Erin Andrews was seen for the first time since news broke that she recently welcomed her first child with husband Jarret Stoll via surrogate.
The sportscaster, 45, who went through a “challenging” nine-year IVF journey, was all smiles when she stepped out alone in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
She showed off her sculpted physique in a sleeveless top and skintight leggings after what appeared to be a morning workout session.
The new mom was later seen getting out of her vehicle carrying a large Gucci bag and covered in a blue crew-neck sweatshirt.
On Monday, Andrews representatives confirmed to TODAY that she and Stoll, a 41-year-old former NHL player, are now parents to a baby boy.

page six added that the baby arrived in the last two weeks and is supposedly named ‘Mack’.
The outlet also claimed that Andrews held a baby shower in June at Harriet’s, a restaurant and bar on the rooftop of the 1 Hotel in West Hollywood.
Andrews has been open about her dreams of becoming a mother, as well as her nearly decade-long journey with in vitro fertilization (IVF).
In January, she confessed us weekly that IVF has been ‘one of the most challenging things in my life’.
Although the process “is not easy,” she insisted that she and her husband had not given up hope.
‘I am doing it right. We are doing well,” Andrews said.
She married Stoll in an intimate ceremony in 2017. The former Dancing With The Stars host and the Canadian athlete tied the knot in Big Sky, Montana.

In 2021, Andrews opened up about her battle with fertility nearly five years after beating cancer.
The sportscaster, who froze her eggs before she was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2016, wrote about the “emotionally draining and slow process” of IVF in a personal essay published in Bulletin.

Andrews explained that she has been going through these treatments since she was 35 years old while trying to conceive with her husband.
At that time she was on her seventh round.
‘My body is kind of stacked against me. I’ve been trying to do IVF treatment for a while, but sometimes it doesn’t go your way.
“Your body just won’t allow it,” he wrote at the time.
‘Every cycle is different in a woman’s body, so some months are better than others. When I heard that this was the best time to go through another treatment, I had to figure it all out again.
‘How am I going to combine this treatment with my work schedule? I got so stressed. When this happens, it really makes you wonder: is it my family’s future or is it my job?
Andrews explained that women in the sports industry often “feel the need to keep these kinds of things under wraps,” but noted that there are also “a lot of other women who might put their careers on the back burner because they don’t want to miss out on taking advantage of any chance.
He noted that it is “very common for people to start families late and put many other aspects of their lives on hold.”

For her seventh round of IVF, she decided to be open with her show’s producers that she would be coming to work “a little later than normal” because of her daily fertility appointments, and she’s “grateful” she did.
They encouraged me to be open about it because this is real life,” she said. ‘It’s not like I’m going to take a hot yoga class, I’m trying to have a baby. I’m not ashamed, and I want to be upfront and honest about this.’
Andrews recalled that he found it “embarrassing” to have his name called out loud in the waiting room.
“It makes me think, ‘I want this to be quiet, I don’t want people to know about it,’ but I don’t care anymore!” she wrote. ‘It sucks, but I’m there with all these other women in the waiting room. It is a team that nobody wants to be a part of. We are all going through this and going through a difficult time. It can be so isolated, but really, we are all together.’
In her essay, Andrews also touched on the ‘mental and emotional toll’ IVF takes on the body, saying it ‘feels like s**t’ and may not amount to anything.
“You could go through this whole experience and get absolutely nothing out of it, that’s the crazy part,” he explained. ‘It’s a ton of money, it’s a ton of time, it’s a ton of mental and physical anguish. And most of the time, they don’t succeed. I think that’s why a lot of people choose to keep quiet about it.
Andrews said going through her seventh round of IVF made her wonder why she’s keeping it “so secret” when she’s not alone in her fertility battle.
‘You never know who else is going through this; It could be another coworker or the person who makes your coffee every day. There are more people than you think,’ she wrote.
“Instead of feeling ashamed, we should give each other more love,” he added.
Andrews made the decision to freeze her eggs years before she was diagnosed with cervical cancer in September 2016.
At the time, he was covering the NFL season and hosting Dancing with the Stars, but he didn’t tell his coworkers about the scare.
He first underwent surgery to remove the cancer on October 11, 2016, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Looking back: Andrews, pictured with Stoll in 2017, began undergoing IVF treatments from the age of 35.
Support: Andrews said women in the sports industry often “feel the need to keep these kinds of things under wraps,” but she decided to be open with the producers of her show about her fertility issues.

A doctor recommended a hysterectomy, which would have eliminated the possibility of having children naturally.
Andrews decided to have another surgery to remove more of her cervix before taking steps to perform the hysterectomy, hoping that would remove the rest of the cancer.
After a follow-up procedure in November, her doctor gave her the good news that the cancer was gone and she would not need radiation or chemotherapy.
The cancer diagnosis came just months after he won a highly public harassment case against the Nashville Marriott and stalker Michael David Barrett, in which he was awarded $55 million.
Andrews previously spoke about undergoing IVF in interviews, and in March 2021 told Bustle that she and Stoll plan to have children in the near future.
“My husband and I miss the whole social circle where people sympathize with their children, homeschooling, all of that,” she said. “We’re going to have kids in the next two years, so maybe we’re in a different social scene.”
