Kate Bolduan Stops by CNN With Baby Cecelia

CNN “New Day” co-anchor Kate Bolduan has been out on maternity leave, but stopped by the set this morning to talk about her past, while also sharing a bit of her future too. Bolduan was accompanied by her new baby Cecelia, who seemed content in her TV debut.

“I’ve totally changed, I’m a little puddle of love,” Bolduan said when asked about motherhood. “New Day” also aired Bolduan’s “Roots” feature, part of a series of reports into the backgrounds of CNN anchors.


“Roots: Our Journeys Home,” hosted by Anderson Cooper and Michaela Pereira, is a compilation of the stories airing tomorrow night at 9pmET.

In other morning show baby news, “Today” co-anchor Savannah Guthrie will return from maternity leave on November 3.

Kate Bolduan Welcomes Baby Cecelia Eve

KateBabyCNN “New Day” anchor Kate Bolduan and her husband Michael Gershenson welcomed baby Cecelia Eve Gershenson Thursday. Cecelia came into the world at 10:39am, weighing 6 lbs.

Bolduan says: “While small, she’s mighty scrappy, she has a set of lungs that rival her mother’s and the world just got a whole lot sweeter.”

Bolduan’s “New Day” team threw her a baby shower last Thursday. Baby Cecelia is the third newborn to a morning news anchor in the last six weeks. “Today” co-anchor Savannah Guthrie gave birth to a baby girl Aug. 14 and Fox News anchor Jenna Lee gave birth to a baby boy Sept. 3.

Bolduan, seen above with senior EP Jim Murphy and most of the CNN “New Day” staff, as well as co-anchors Chris Cuomo and Michaela Pereira off to the left, was given a surprise baby shower yesterday.

Various anchors will be filling in over the next few months. Next week Brooke Baldwin and Brianna Keilar will fill in. Pereira is off as well.

Reporter Slammed in Ferguson Slams Joe Scarborough: ‘Sipping his Starbucks Smugly’

MSNBCNNFerguson

The arrest of two reporters in Ferguson, MO last night has been a hot topic on morning cable news. In the first 10 minutes of “Morning Joe,” Joe Scarborough shared his opinion.

“I’ve been in places where police officers said: ‘all right you know what? This is cordoned off, you guys need to move along.’ You know what I do? I go, ‘yes, sir, or yes, ma’am.’ I don’t sit there and have a debate and film the police officer unless I want to get on TV and have people talk about me the next day,” said Scarborough, adding, “I am sure I am just the worst person in the world for saying this.”

Scarborough’s take on the arrest and short detention of Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery and The Huffington Post’s Ryan Reilly, became news over on CNN. Kate Bolduan asked Lowery — who says police slammed him into a soda machine during his arrest — about Scarborough’s comments:

I would invite Joe Scarborough to come down to Ferguson and get out of 30 Rock where he’s sitting there sipping his Starbucks smugly. I invite him to come down here and talk to the residents of Ferguson where I’ve been since Monday afternoon having tear gas shot at me, having rubber bullets shot at me, having mothers and daughters crying, having a 19-year-old boy crying that he had to run and pull his 21-year-old sister out from a cloud of tear gas. He thought she was going to die.

I invite Joe Scarborough down here and to do some reporting on the ground, and then he can — and then maybe we can have an educated conversation about what’s happening here.

‘Today’ Anchors Throw Savannah Guthrie a Baby Shower

Savannah Guthrie‘s “Today” show colleagues — Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda Kotb, Tamron Hall and Natalie Morales — threw the expecting mom a baby shower last week at The Glass Houses in Chelsea.

Ivan Watson: ‘I’m Being Kicked. I’m Being Kicked’

WatsonTurkeyCNN’s Ivan Watson says it was just another day at the office Saturday when he was roughed up by security forces in Istanbul while reporting  on the one year anniversary of the standoff and crackdown in Istanbul’s Gezi park. Turkish authorities began demanding his identification, then knocking him around and kicking him, all in the middle of a live report.

“I’m pretty used to getting knocked around by security forces,” Watson told Kate Bolduan on “New Day.” “I’ve been detained in Iran and Russia. I’ve been knocked around in Turkey before. The difference here is that it happened on live television.”

Watson says he wasn’t legally detained but rather held for a half hour as security forces conducted an identity check. “They did not accept my Turkish press accreditation,” he says, adding that he’s seen other colleagues in the media leave their jobs because of the pressure put on them by security forces.

Jenna Lee Pregnant With First Child

Jenna LeeAt the end of “Happening Now” this afternoon, co-anchor Jenna Lee announced she and husband Leif Babin are expecting their first child around, appropriately enough, Labor Day.

“As my team knows, I like to double and triple source everything before putting it on the air,” Lee joked. “After consulting a wide variety of different medical experts, I can confirm that my husband and I are expecting our first child…it’s very much ‘happening now.’”

Co-anchor Jon Scott asked Lee if part of her husband’s training as a former Navy SEAL dealt with how to “deal with a pregnant woman.”

“I can’t reveal all their top-secret training,” Lee lightheartedly responded, adding that for some reason, a lot of former Navy Seals end up having girls as children. Lee and Babin have decided not to learn the gender ahead of time. “It will just be breaking news when it happens,” Lee joked.

Lee joins “Today” show anchor Savannah Guthrie and CNN anchor Kate Bolduan who are also pregnant for the first time.

Kate Bolduan Expecting First Child

“New Day” co-anchor Kate Bolduan and her husband private equity investor Michael Gershenson are expecting their first child. “You all, without probably knowing it, have put up with some pretty gnarly morning sickness,” Bolduan said.

“You’ll have to deal with another baby,” John Berman said, pointing at Chris Cuomo. “I know, I’ve already got one,” Bolduan laughed while leaning on Cuomo.

And a fellow morning anchor who is also expecting, sent her congratulations.
