Erin Burnett had a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. The CNN news anchor and her husband, David Rubulotta, welcomed their first child together on November 29, just one day after Thanksgiving.
Burnett gave birth to their baby boy at 9:47 p.m. on Friday. Burnett says she is overjoyed with her new edition and is excited to be a mother. "Dave and I welcomed a healthy, happy baby boy at 9:47 p.m. Friday, Nov. 29," Burnett said. "He weighed in at 8 pounds, 10 ounces. Seeing him for the first time was the most awe-inspiring, joyful moment of our lives." They have not yet released the baby's name.
The couple dated for eight years before getting engaged in September 2011. They were later married in December 2012, and announced that they were expecting their first child in June, via a CNN rep. "I can confirm that Erin Burnett and her husband, David Rubulotta, are expecting their first child in November," the rep said at the time. "They are both very excited." "We've always wanted this and we're very lucky," she said after the announcement.
