Dylan Dreyer's family are big fans of her work on the Today Show, and her son Calvin even makes regular appearances on there with his own cooking segment, Cooking with Cal. 

What's more, the seven-year-old has already discovered just what happens backstage on a live show, with his dad, Brian Fichera - a cameraman for NBC, giving him a backstage tour of Nightly News.

Brian even let slip on the hilarious antics behind-the-scenes in a tongue-in-cheek Instagram post uploaded this week.

The dad-of-three shared an image of himself filming in the studios as his son looked on. "Throw back to the time I made the mistake of letting cal listen to what is really being said over headsets. #gocalgo," he wrote in the caption.

Dylan's children have all grown up watching their mom on TV, with the star having worked on it for over a decade. 

The pair tied the knot in 2012 and have been blissfully happy ever since, managing to balance their busy jobs with NBC while looking after their three young sons.

Dylan opened up about the way in which they keep their relationship alive during an interview with "Golf is the thing we do together. We have a couple of drinks, we laugh. We remember why we fell in love. Then we go home and it's right back to family," she said. 

The couple also always make sure to stay in touch during the day, despite their busy schedules. "Our schedules mean we don’t see each other much, but we text all the time,” Dylan said.

"Sometimes it’s even easier to have an important or deep conversation via text because we get all our thoughts out without being interrupted. "We don't find it impersonal. In fact, just the opposite.

We know each other well enough to understand each other's tone so a lot gets accomplished through texting!"

Dylan and Brian share children Calvin, seven, Oliver, three, and one-year-old Rusty. While promoting her children's book Misty the Cloud: Friends Through Rain or Shine, Dylan spoke to HELLO! about her kids and whether she wants to add to her brood. "I think I've maxed out now," she said with a chuckle before admitting: "I wish I had started having kids sooner, because I really love everything about kids. "I never thought I would love it as much as I do. Being a mom is the best. I love fostering their ideas, I also somehow found more patience after becoming a mom."

Although she and Brian weren't always convinced that a family with children was in their future. "We didn't think we wanted kids at all," she said. 

"We were living in New York City, traveling whenever we wanted to, doing whatever we wanted, and then suddenly it sort of came to us both. We were like 'let's have kids'. Both of us obviously love it." 

The number three also holds a special place in Dylan and Brian's hearts as she explained: "When we decided to have children, I used to always want three. I grew up with two brothers, my husband is one of three. Three just feels right for us now."
