News Anchor Parents ‘Report’ on Their Baby’s Day in Viral TikTok


Trending Now


The pair have whipped up the “Baby News Network”

News anchors have a knack for making most everything sound exciting, and that even includes a day-in-the-life of babies! In a now-viral video, Jeannette Reyes and Robert Burton are using their own experience of manning the news desk to whip up the “Baby News Network.”

Reyes, a morning anchor at WTTG-TV in Washington, D.C., kicks off the video to the tune of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” by greeting her daughter. “Good morning, Bella. It is 9:52. Hopefully you slept well; certainly no one else did, but we’re not going to point any fingers.”

Mom passes it off to Burton, a news anchor with ABC 7News in Washington, D.C. to report on the weather.  “Will we get to enjoy it?” he asks. “Well, if spit ups, feedings and diaper changes don’t get in the way, we just might be able to make it out of here before midnight.”

But wait! There’s breaking news, as reported by Reyes. “An explosion at the diaper station. Fortunately, no injuries have been reported, and authorities tell us they do have a suspect in custody. Unfortunately, that suspect is not speaking at the moment, but they have linked her to hundreds of other explosions.”

“Is she considered a flight risk?” asks Burton. “No, look at her” replies Reyes with an exasperated look on her face (been there!). The video wraps up with mom reciting “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” in her telltale anchor news voice before the pair signs off from the Baby News Network.

Since Reyes and Burton made the video earlier this week, they and baby Bella are making waves not only in the news community but on TikTok as well. The video has been viewed almost five million times, has over one million likes and 16k comments.
