Two news correspondents have their own breaking news to share — the birth of their son.

Courtney Friel of Fox News and her husband, CNN‘s Carter Evans, welcomed their first child, son Cash Hudson Evans, at 6:08 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 1 in New York City. Cash weighed in at 9 lbs.

“We’re so excited to start out 2011 with a new baby and this new chapter in our lives,” Friel, 30, tells PEOPLE.

The couple, who met in San Diego at the NBC station KNSD, married in 2005 in Los Angeles.
