Congratulations are in order for Abby Phillip and her husband Marcus Richardson!
While sharing her March 2021 cover of The Cut, the CNN senior political correspondent confirmed she is pregnant with her first child, a baby girl!
“@gizmont are having a baby girl this summer! I shot this cover then I was 4 months pregnant and I can’t wait to be able to tell my baby girl that she was on the cover a magazine,” she wrote. “There are just no words.”
In her interview with Gayle King, the ”Inside Politics Sunday with Abby Phillip” anchor reveals how pregnancy has changed her perspective on womanhood.
“The experience of pregnancy has only made me become more in awe of what we as women are able to endure. It was tough: battling morning sickness while balancing a demanding job with long, unpredictable hours. But it has been a reminder of what I am capable of — and what so many women do every day,” the commenter said.
Phillip also spoke about her loving husband, who she married on May 26, 2018.
“Look, if you’re in this business, you can’t do it without someone who is flexible, because your life is just a mess,” she told King.
“It’s unpredictable, it’s busy, it’s ever-changing. And he’s just always like, ‘What do you need? How can I help you?’ I remember one of our first dates — we were supposed to meet up and I left my wallet at home and I was an hour and a half late. He just waited and wasn’t pissed off. I swear to God, I knew then.”
In March, Phillip wrote Richardson a touching message in honor of his birthday.
“Whether it’s zipping up my dresses no matter how early it is in the morning, to getting up at 5am on Sundays to make me breakfast before the show, you’re the real MVP,” she wrote.
