WMTW's Cristina Frank and her husband Eric are celebrating the birth of their first baby, a girl, born earlier this week. The baby was born earlier this week at Maine Medical Center, and Cristina shared a couple of adorable pictures on her Facebook page.

Lucie Grace weighed in at 8 pounds, 6 ounces. Cristina, who anchors WMTW's weekday morning newscasts, will be taking a little break from the desk, to enjoy some time with her little bundle of joy.

My fiance, Kathleen Jordan, works with Cristina at Channel 8. We attended Cristina and Eric's baby shower back in July. Here we are at the shower with her, and her co-anchor David Charns.
