Former WSOC-TV news anchor Natalie Pasquarella proved just what a professional she is when her water broke while she was on the air last Tuesday night (9/26) at NBC News 4 New York. The 35-year-old even managed to finish a segment about Twitter’s new extended character limit on the 11:00 PM newscast despite the dramatic turn of events. The only clue might have been the little giggle she let slip.

As soon as the cameras were off, Natalie’s executive producer and other staff members rushed her to the hospital where, thirteen hours later, she gave birth to a 5 lb. 6 oz. boy named Jamin James Pastore. Mom, dad, and their new son are doing well. No word on when Natalie will be back on the air but, based on her resilience in childbirth, I’m guessing it’ll be any day now.
