NBC News chief White House correspondent and co-host of Weekend TODAY Kristen Welker is pregnant with her first child through a surrogate. Welker struggled with infertility for two decades before finding her surrogate. Welker was already pregnant when she moderated the 2020 presidential debate and says thinking about her baby helped keep her calm during the high-stakes showdown.
“Well, my dear niece, I write this letter just weeks before your arrival and I understand that you cannot quite visualize how big the world is. It’s all you have imagined and then some. I have dreamed of this day since the first time I found out that I was pregnant. We can’t wait to see your bright eyes and give you a big hug!” She said to her baby that is in the womb.
“Your mom and I have been dreaming about when you’d arrive. When I first met your mom, I loved her instantly, and we dreamed about you joining our family. When the two of us got married all those years ago, we couldn’t wait for you to come into the world! When you didn’t arrive right away, we were worried that something was wrong. So, we went to visit some doctors who helped us understand what was happening. As you begin your journey, no matter what that looks like, we wish you well. We hope you will join us so we can share our lessons with you.” Kristen Welker added while exclaiming her emotions and joy.
Being a mother is one of the most overwhelming and joyful experiences. We congratulate the couple for having their first baby and wish that their life gets filled with joy and happiness.
