Fox News and its conglomerate of host have been enjoying a great deal of success in the ratings. They have decimated the rest of the legacy media such as CNN and there doesn’t seem to be any sign that they are stopping. But, now one of the main stars of Fox News is celebrating an even greater achievement. Fox News anchor Jesse Watters announced some “life-changing” news on Monday when he revealed his wife, Emma DiGiovine, is expecting a baby girl.
In fact, it has just been reported by The Daily Caller that:
Watters announced on “The Five” that his wife is currently five months into her pregnancy and are expecting the child in April 2023. He and his wife are the parents of a son, Jesse Bailey Watters Jr., who his wife delivered Apr. 2, 2021.
“My wife, Emma, is pregnant with a girl. So, we’re having a girl and she’s five months along which I think is halfway through,” Watters said, followed by a celebratory reaction from his fellow co-hosts. “And she looks fantastic, you can’t even tell that she’s pregnant.”
The former “Watters World” host has twin daughters from his previous marriage to Noelle Inguagiato, Market Realist reported.
The Five” panel celebrated their colleague’s big news with applause and a slew of jokes from co-host Greg Gutfeld, who immediately asked why the couple would not allow their child to decide the gender.
The Daily Caller went on to report that:
“There’s no gender until the child decides,” Gutfeld joked.
No, we assign the gender at birth in our family and we usually get it right,” Watters replied.
Watters added that the couple is currently struggling with names, but revealed that the process is a “collateral effort.” Co-host Dana Perino suggested that Watters should allow Twitter CEO Elon Musk to name the baby, to which he replied that Musk gives his children “very strange” names.
The host concluded the life changing segment by receiving his co-hosts’ advice on taking paternity leave. After the birth of his son, the anchor took a hiatus from “The Five” and expressed his newfound support for paternity leave, Market Realist reported.
I used to mock people for taking paternity, I used to think it was a big ruse, but now, ya know, I wish I could take six weeks,” he said during an April 2021 segment.
It has certainly been a tsunami of successes this year for Jesse Watters. In fact, Newsweek reported earlier this year that:
Watters’ foray into Fox News’ primetime arena has so far proven to be a ratings success, with early figures suggesting he could be in with a chance of becoming the network’s new golden anchor, ahead of Tucker Carlson.
Newsweek went on to report that:
Watters became the permanent host of Fox News‘ 7 p.m. ET hour show this month and, according to Nielsen figures obtained by Newsweek, his debut show on Monday netted about 3.8 million total viewers—Fox’s best ratings in the time slot in more than a year. His second had 3.6 million.
The controversial but fan-favorite Watters also co-hosts the channel’s popular round-table talk show The Five, and is set to continue with that role.
The Five, which airs at 5 p.m. ET, remained the top-rated live program on all of cable, with 3.9 million total viewers on the day of his primetime premiere.
Later on, we at The Raging Patriot reported at the beginning of last month that the Fox News Channel’s popular show The Five takes the top spot in cable news for the seventh consecutive month. It was rated number one in ten of the last 11 months. On average, the show attracted 3.4 million viewers with more than 400,000 in the 25-54 demo and 255,000 in the 10-49 demo. The Five beat every show on CNN and MSNBC in October.
