Theodore ‘Teddy’ Dokoupil weighed in at 6 lbs., 5 oz. He stretches nearly 20 inches. Mom, dad and tiny Teddy are all doing great.”

Tur shared the same family photo herself on Instagram Wednesday, joking that her newborn son’s “first words were ‘wah wah wah!’ ”
“Our first words (after one of us screamed ‘owie, owie, owie’ for about 12 hours) were ‘ooo, eee, awwww,’ ” she added of herself and her husband. “The whole family is happy as can be.”
While Teddy is the first baby for Tur, Dokoupil — whom she married in October 2017 — has two other children from his previous marriage.
Tur, who is the author of Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History, first announced her pregnancy in December when she played a video of her ultrasound on-air.
“I have a baby in my belly, officially,” she told viewers. “I’m tired of the tweets asking so I’m going to announce it. That is my little guy.”
Hunt congratulated her colleague on Twitter, writing: “Welcome baby Teddy Dokoupil! We love you already! @KatyTurNBC @tonydokoupil.”
