Remember the professor a.k.a the ‘BBC Dad’ whose son randomly walked in and crashed his interview on live television? Well, a similar incident happened to a reporter for MSNBC.
According to a report by News18, MSNBC News reporter Courtney Kube was engaged in her ongoing news segment when suddenly her son popped up and was captured live!
She was discussing Turkey’s escalating military operations in Syria when her son walked up to her and asked for her attention, said reports. Kube first tried to ignore the child, lightly push him aside, and carry on with the segment.
But when the kid kept coming upfront, she couldn’t ignore him anymore and said while smiling, “Excuse me, my kids are here…live television!”
The footage of the segment was posted online by MSNBC’s Twitter account with the fun caption, “Sometimes unexpected breaking news happens while you’re reporting breaking news. #MSNBCMoms #workingmoms.”

The video has left netizens gushing over the cuteness of the adorable mother-son moment. Some even pointed out how it was great for companies to allow working moms to bring their kids over at work.
I think it’s fantastic that she’s allowed to have her kids around while working.
Good on you MSNBC.

Do not love what is happening to our allies but this kid gave me a smile I need thru all this and how relatable is this reporter. Strong mama holding down her job and got her kiddos

@MSNBC gets a win for supporting their working moms on this one, because that little boy just looks happy to be there, and we don't hear any crying when he leaves. Nice.

Kudos to the savvy producer in the control room who thought, "uh…now's probably a good time to run a graphic for a few seconds."
