CNN Early Start Anchor Laura Jarrett and Husband Tony Balkissoon Welcome Daughter June Tahay


Laura Jarrett’s family just got a little bit bigger!

The CNN Early Start co-anchor and her husband Tony Balkissoon welcomed daughter June Tahay on Sunday, July 17, at 9:22am, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The new bundle of joy’s name is a mashup of the women in their family — her first name is Laura’s mom’s (Valerie Jarrett’s) middle name, and her middle name (Tahay) is her husband’s mom’s name. The couple are also parents to 3-year-old son James.

“We’re so thrilled June is finally here!” Jarrett tells PEOPLE. “She has a big appetite and a big voice — fitting in the family already. Her older brother James has also welcomed her arrival, helping prep her bottles and singing to her — loudly.”

The TV host first shared the happy news of her daughter’s arrival along with a photo of the newborn on Instagram July 18.
