TLC has really done it all. The network broadcasted a live birth on Facebook Live on Friday, June 24.
According to Variety, the stream reprises TLC’s A Baby Story, a docuseries following expecting mothers through their final weeks of pregnancy that aired in the late '90s.
The video stream, which began around 4:20 a.m. ET on TLC’s Facebook page, lasted about 11 hours and featured a mother named Rossio giving birth in her home.
“Welcome back to ‘A Baby Story LIVE’ Part 2. You're watching Rossio, 39 weeks pregnant, give birth to her baby boy at home in Virginia LIVE right now! Warning: This live broadcast may contain graphic content. Viewer discretion is advised,” a description on Facebook read.
Both videos can be seen by clicking here. The final video of Rossio giving birth was watched by more than 50,000 viewers. After welcoming her little boy, Rossio’s older son adorably asks if his new baby brother needs milk.
“You got this! So close mama!,” one viewer commented on the video, while another added: “Superwoman right there.” Some, however, had to mute the volume. “Good lord the yelling,” one person commented.
Variety reports that TLC will air another livestream birth with expectant mother Angela on June 27.
TLC and Discovery Life are set to then air short-form versions of both live births on TV as well.
