NBC News Chief White House Correspondent Hallie Jackson Is Pregnant

By A.J. Katz 

Yesterday on NBC Sunday Today with Willie Geist, NBC News chief White House correspondent (and MSNBC 10 a.m. anchor) Hallie Jackson announced that she and her NBC News colleague, Capitol Hill producer Frank Thorp are expecting a baby girl in April.

“Frank and I have had some incredible adventures together, but I predict parenthood will be our happiest, craziest one yet,” said Jackson. “And it’s a bonus that we both cover Washington politics, since it means we’re already used to sleepless nights and lots of crying.”

Thorp added: “We are so overwhelmingly excited to bring this little person into the world. Life is such an amazing adventure with Hallie as my partner, and I can’t wait to show this baby the world as a family.”


This will be the first child for Jackson and Thorp!
