The OWN network, which airs Lisa’s fascinating show Our America with Lisa Ling said “Lisa and Jett are resting comfortably. The proud parents are enjoying the first day of parenthood and are looking forward to bringing their daughter home.”
Lisa said in a statement to US Weekly “We feel so blessed that this day has arrived.”
Baby Jett Ling Song came into the world 1:24 p.m. and weighed 6 pounds, 6 ounces.
Lisa and Paul have been married for five years, and suffered a miscarriage in 2010.
Lisa told US Weekly earlier that she’s trying as hard as she can to be as eco-friendly as she can, even using organic materials in the nursery. She doesn’t know if she can got the cloth diaper route, though:
“We’re doing a partial green nursery and trying as hard as we can to do as much organic stuff for our nursery as we can. I don’t know that I’m going to entirely do cloth diapers. I’d like to be be ambitious about it, but in all honesty I can’t say that I will.”
