Philadelphia native and 6ABC reporter Maggie Kent is celebrating the birth of her daughter, who arrived Monday after the news anchor had dressed up as a magic eight ball for Halloween.
Kent and the station shared the news Tuesday, announcing that the baby girl was born Monday afternoon and weighed seven pounds, 12 ounces.
Kent shared a picture of her newborn girl with a bow on her head as she slept.
She’s here, she’s healthy & perfect! 🥰 she’s ours forever & ever!https://t.co/cv6I54vZJX— Maggie Kent (@MaggieKent6abc) November 2, 2021
"Mom and dad are over the moon!" Kent said, via 6ABC.
Kent grew up in the neighborhood around Philadelphia's Italian Market and is a graduate of Central High School. She joined 6ABC in 2018 after previously working at News 12 The Bronx and Brooklyn and WCBS in New York City.
Last month, she shared a video on Instagram showing her pregnancy journey and growing baby bump while on the job in Philly.
