CNN’s Kelly Flynn‘s first baby will be delivered tomorrow night. Her second is due in a couple weeks.
Flynn is the executive producer of CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute, which airs tomorrow night at 9pmET on CNN. She’s also eight-and-a-half months pregnant.
“It’s hard when you’re delivering two babies at once,” Flynn tells TVNewser. “It’s been interesting to pull it off.”
Flynn says the “massive process” behind “Heroes” actually helped. “I think there was something good about me being so fully engrossed in the project while being pregnant,” she says. “It allowed me not to have any anxiety about my pregnancy, and served as a nice source of distraction.”
She says she does not subscribe to the “pregnancy brain” mentality. “I became very attached to not uttering those words,” she says. “Women are perfectly capable to get through a big project while pregnant.”
One thing she was not able to do this year, unlike when she EP’ed last year, was attend the event. Still, she “conducted meetings all year long,” and was “here in the the Time Warner Center with a headset on in the control room” when the all-star show was recorded on Saturday.
And what did she think of the finished product?
