NBC News’ business correspondent Jo Ling Kent received a heck of a Christmas surprise! She gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Mira Ling Conroy just in time for the holiday.

This is the first child for Kent and Scott Conroy.

Previously, Kent was a reporter at Fox Business Network and an investigative reporter at NBC Connecticut, where she won a Peabody for her team’s coverage of the Newtown school shooting.

She also reported for NBC News on the campaign trail in 2012, covering the presidential election as an embed.
