Maggie Rodriguez and her family weren’t expecting their second arrival until July 1st. But baby Michael Tobin Rodriguez Jr. had other ideas. He must have taken his cue from Maggie’s Early Show, as his grand debut (June 13th) was early indeed: 2.5 weeks earlier than his due date! Michael, who weighed 7 pounds, 1 ounce, joins big sister Daniella (5) to round out the Rodriguez’ quartet.
With Michael Jr. making such an early arrival, it’s a good thing that Maggie’s coanchors recently threw her an on-air shower! Rodriguez received gifts both practical and pampering: a flip camera (from Harry Smith), a spa treatment at Bliss Spa (from Julie Chen), a diaper cake and baby boy gift bag (from Dave Price) and a session with a baby photographer (from Erica Hill).
