OWN star Lisa Ling gave birth to a baby girl on Friday in California. The new bundle of joy is named Jett Ling Song.
Baby Jett Ling Song was born in Santa Monica, California, at 1:24 p.m. weighing 6 pounds, 6 ounces. Naturally, Jett’s parents are over the moon.
In a statement on Friday, the couple said, “The proud parents are enjoying the first day of parenthood and are looking forward to bringing their daughter home.”
It was not an easy road for Ling after she experienced a miscarriage in 2010. The journalist shared her experience and emotional pain with other women after losing the couple’s first child.
She created a website called Secret Society of Women as a safe haven where women could freely share their thoughts, not only about miscarriage but other female issues as well.
She told Access Hollywood Live last fall, “I’ve just been trying to be very, very cautious about everything… with diet, with exercise.”
The good news is that the entire Ling-Song family is happy and healthy.
Welcome to the world, Baby Jett!
