TODAY lifestyle correspondent Jenna Wolfe welcomed her second daughter with her partner, NBC News foreign correspondent Stephanie Gosk — and she live-tweeted her labor. See the couple's first baby photo and find out the adorable Irish name.

Wolfe and Gosk announced the arrival of their baby girl via Twitter — and we are totally crushing over her name.


Quinn is actually categorized as a boy name, however there are many girls with this trendy moniker as well. In fact, the Social Security Adminstration's list of popular baby names ranks it as the 118th most popular name for girls — and it isn't even in the top 1000 for boys.

Quinn is a name of Irish origin that means, "intelligent," however it is interesting to note that it also has Scottish ties as well.

The name has been increasing in popularity the last few years, possibility due in part to the cheerleader Quinn Fabray on the show Glee.

Gosk posted a cute picture of the couple with their newborn daughter, who they call "Quinny." They are also parents to a 17-month-old daughter named Harper.


When I was going though labor, I could barely speak — much less tweet, however Wolfe kept followers posted throughout much of her labor.

Early Wednesday morning she announced labor had started.


A few hours later, she responded to a follower wishing her good luck, tweeting, "Thx!! We're close!!"

At noon, she wrote, "This little one's as stubborn as her mama (me).... Apparently she's going to come out when she's good and ready."

Shortly after this tweet, she responded to someone asking if she was keeping tabs on NBC correspondent Jeff Rossen.

"Yes, in between contractions. Hope he appreciates!!" she replied.

It is possible that Gosk was doing the tweeting for her, however we will just pretend that Wolfe was doing some serious multi-tasking.

Quinn joins several new babies in the TODAY show family, including Savannah Guthrie's daughter Vale, Carson Daly's daughter London Rose and Jenna Bush Hager's daughter Mila.
