A weather reporter had a surprise visitor during her morning forecast, making for an adorable live TV blooper when she was interrupted by her toddler son.
ABC7’s Leslie Lopez was reporting on the weather from her home in Los Angeles, California, on January 8 when her 10-month-old son, Nolan, made an unexpected cameo.
It was Lopez’s colleague, and ABC7 News anchor Brandi Hitt, who shared the video of the adorable interruption on Twitter, which soon got widely shared across social media platforms.
In the video, Lopez is seen in the middle of a forecast when her 10-month-old son crawls on to her leg, live on air. Though she paused for a laugh saying “there’s a baby down below”, she picks up her son and continues the forecast without a gaffe.
“He walks now guys, I’ve lost all control,” she adds, before breaking for a commercial.
Take a look here:

I love her reaction, she’s not angry, she handles it as someone who is comfortable with herself and her situation. She looks like a great mother.

This was a joy to see. The pandemic has been rough but the time with my kids has been amazing. They’ve talked to my customers and my customers have gotten to know them and my dog and it’s made work a lot more fun. I’m glad you get to work and have him be apart of it.

If there is one good thing to come out of this pandemic, it is that real life has invaded our work lives. I’m Lovin’ it!

My favorite thing about global pandemic is seeing moms work from home and have their children join them in TV

Lopez told Good Morning America that her son recently learned how to walk and decided to show off his skills at 5.40 am while all of America watched. “For the first time ever, he’s pulled himself up from sitting to standing,” she added.
According to the news agency, Lopez has been reporting solo from her house without a crew, amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
