Juggling between a demanding career and motherhood is not easy. Well, definitely not if the kids want your attention while you’re working.
Something similar happened when Courtney Kube – NBC’s Pentagon and National Security correspondent – was explaining Syria crisis on live television.
Her little son wanted his mommy’s attention and started nudging her as she was delivering news. Not losing her calm, she said, “Excuse me, my kids are here. Live television!” And then the camera cut to a graphic.
MSNBC shared the clip on its official Twitter handle, writing, “Sometimes unexpected breaking news happens while you’re reporting breaking news”.
The video soon started going viral, and has already garnered 2.4 million views on Twitter itself.
I think it’s fantastic that she’s allowed to have her kids around while working.— Kassandra Seven (@KassandraSeven) October 9, 2019
