NBC News/MSNBC anchor Katy Tur and CBS News correspondent Tony Dokoupil are now parents of a baby boy born on Saturday.
Theodore “Teddy” Dokoupil came into the world at 6 pounds, 5 ounces.
“He stretches nearly 20 inches,” her good friend and MSNBC colleague Kasie Hunt said on-air this afternoon. “Mom, dad and tiny Teddy are all doing great.”

Mom and baby are doing great, and older sister Dora is already helping with the feedings and changes.
Congrats to the happy families.
