NBC News’ Kasie Hunt Gives Birth to a Baby Boy

By A.J. Katz 

NBC News Capitol Hill Correspondent and host of MSNBC’s Kasie DC, Kasie Hunt gave birth Wednesday night to a boy named Mars Hunt Rivera. The first child for Hunt and her husband, Meet the Press senior digital producer Matt Rivera comes in at an impressive nine pounds, eight ounces (a big boy!).

Hunt’s parents from Philadelphia and Rivera’s parents from New York were presemt.

We hear that Mars has dad’s mouth and mom’s chin, and that he sneezes so loudly you can hear him down the hall.


“Mars must already have big things planned since he started life at nine and a half pounds,” Hunt told TVNewser. “We love him so much and can’t wait to see what joy he brings to our family of three.”
