Multitasking for Milk! Dylan Dreyer Uses Breast Pump While Filming the Today Show at Home

Dylan Dreyer can do it all!

The new mom of two showed off her "multitasking" skills on Thursday's at-home edition of the Today show's third hour, revealing to co-hosts Craig Melvin, Al Roker and Sheinelle Jones that she was discreetly using a breast pump underneath her zip-up jacket during their filming session.

"I got some work done on my maternity leave," joked Dreyer, 38, laughing as she turned to the side to show off her front. "I have to pump! Mama's gotta make some milk."

"I have to feed [son Oliver George, 6 months] and this is taking a little longer than I planned for, so I've got portable pumps and I'm all hooked up and ready to go!" she added.

"We can do the show and you'd never know," quipped Jones, 42, who's a mother of three.

Dreyer, who returned to the Today show from maternity leave in May, four months after giving birth, opened up to PEOPLE the previous month about how she and husband Brian Fichera were handling life at home with their two boys amid the coronavirus global health crisis.

"We're getting more time together than I ever would've imagined," said the mother of two. "I would say that's the blessing in disguise of all this, just that we get so much family time. Sometimes it drives you crazy, but for the most part it's been great."

However, "Sometimes you just need a break," Dreyer admitted. "With the two kids, we're still adjusting. It's man-on-man defense. My husband and I just keep switching back and forth between which kid we're taking care of at the moment."

"It's a reality check," she added. "It's like, 'Wow, this is a lot of parenting.' "
