A news anchor appears with her baby during a live broadcast; netizens hail mother’s effort


A TV news presenter and mother of a three-month-old surprised her viewers when she appeared on screen with her baby. According to CBS News, Rebecca Schuld, 42, from Wisconsin, USA, works with the television station as a meteorologist. She recently had a baby and completed her three-month maternity leave. Amid the COVID pandemic, Schuld worked from home and was tasked with presenting weather forecasts. Last week, as she was about to start her newsletter, Rebecca said the sleeping baby suddenly woke up at the last moment.

Watch the viral video here:

“I was minutes away from having my next weather show, and my baby had just woken up. I’m walking over to my Greenwall. I’m holding her and our producer says, ‘Oh your baby, is she going to make an appearance?” Rebecca told Yahoo Life on Wednesday. “I was very confident that she was going to behave because she had just taken a long nap so I knew she would be happy. I said ‘of course!'” added the meteorologist.

According to her, this was not planned and added that at one point she felt guilty for breaking the rules. “It was this weird moment where I’m like, wait, why am I guilty? No, it’s great. “I’m still doing my job. And, yes, do I have to take a break if there’s something going on with the baby? Sure. But that’s life, right?” she told Yahoo Life.

Social media users appreciate the TV news anchor’s decision

Meanwhile, the unusual video has gone viral and garnered tons of likes from social media users. “Proud of the network for allowing her to bring her baby. A real family “atmosphere”, wrote a user on Twitter. “Congratulations Rebecca! Your daughter Fiona is adorable, and her first TV appearance went well. Star in training??!! Enjoy every minute it goes by so fast,” the second user added. “That’s pretty much what most of my remote work Webex calls look like and I love it. We balance so much. I’m not a parent but I applaud our support that it works at work!! added the third user.
