CBS3 reporter Cleve Bryan chases New Jersey stories for the network, but his new baby girl might have a future in meteorology.
After all, she almost has the storm-chasing down already.
Born at 8:03 a.m. on Saturday at Virtua Hospital in Voorhees, Lucia Victoria Bryan entered the world after mom Nicole Bryan went into labor as a tornado warning was issued for the area. According to a release from CBS3, staff at the hospital had to stay away from windows due to the warning, which forced mom to hold off on pushing.
“As soon as the tornado warning was over, she swept us off our feet,” Bryan says.
The newest Bryan takes her name from her great-great grandmother, and weighed in at 7 lbs, 9 oz. She is the Bryan family’s first daughter and third child after sons Joshua and Colton.
Bryan’s daughter is the latest little girl in the CBS3 family, with anchor Nicole Brewer and meteorologist Kate Bilo giving birth to young girls in recent months. Bilo this week was admitted to an area hospital after doctors found she was suffering from pulmonary embolisms, the risk for which can be heightened by pregnancy.
