WNBC’s Natalie Pasquarella was reporting on Twitter’s updated character limit when she let out a nervous giggle. Pasquarella continued with her comment on the story though her co-workers later revealed that her water had broken at that moment.


Pasquarella waited until the show was off the air to say something. The station’s executive producer and other co-workers helped her get to a hospital, where she met her husband, Jamin Pastore, and, 13 hours later, gave birth to their son, Jamin James Pastore.

Pasquarella shared an Instagram post with images of her and her husband with their newborn baby, who weighed 5 pounds, 6 ounces and was 19 inches long.
