Lisa Ling is a new mom! The 39-year-old journalist welcomed a baby girl with husband Paul Song on Friday, March 8, Us Weekly can confirm.
Jett Ling Song was born in Santa Monica, Calif., at 1:24 p.m. She weighed in at 6 pounds, 6 ounces.
"We feel so blessed that this day has arrived," Ling told Us in an exclusive statement. We're nervously excited to begin this next chapter in our lives with our little Jett."
This is the first child for the couple of five years, who suffered a devastating miscarriage in 2010. Ling confirmed her pregnancy on Anderson Cooper's daytime talk show in October. "I was trying to keep [my pregnancy] quiet for a long time, but I'm starting to get to the point where it looks like I have this really big beer belly," she joked. "I figured I'd better share it publicly."
Ling told Us in January that she was putting the finishing touches on a eco-friendly, chic nursery. "We're doing a partial green nursery and trying as hard as we can to do as much organic stuff for our nursery as we can," she said.
But she was still debating what kind of diapers to use. "I don't know that I'm going to entirely do cloth diapers," the mom-to-be admitted. "I'd like to be be ambitious about it, but in all honesty I can't say that I will."
