Breaking news: Journalist Lisa Ling has given birth! The host of CNN’s original documentary series This Is Life With Lisa Ling welcomed daughter Ray Ling on Monday, June 6, with husband Paul Song, she confirmed to Us Weekly.
The baby girl weighed in at 6 pounds, 12 ounces. Ling and Song, a radiation oncologist, are also parents of daughter Jett, 3.
“We’re overjoyed to have our baby girl join the family,” Ling tells Us Weekly. “Jett is so excited to be a big sister.”
The 42-year-old former cohost of The View, who suffered two miscarriages before Jett was born, opened up in a June 2014 interview with Today’s Parent about balancing her career and a small child.
“It’s incredibly difficult. I think the idea that women can have it all is an impossible notion,” she revealed. “Any mother who works has moments of guilt because they are not with their baby all the time. Every time I walk out the door, it kills me — every time. I miss her. More than I ever miss anyone, more than I knew I could miss anyone. But I feel so strongly about what I do, I’m so passionate about it. I hope one day that my daughter feels proud of me and my work.”
Ling and Song just celebrated their nine-year wedding anniversary.
Season 3 of This Is Life With Lisa Ling premieres on CNN this fall.
