Funny Anchor Parents Narrate Baby’s Diaper Change like a Breaking News Segment | “Explosion at the Diaper Station”
Kids who had parents working in the same professions surely have a bunch of interesting stories to tell when they grow up. We can bet when this baby grows up with both parents as news anchors, she is going to have a 'newsworthy' tale indeed. What if your parents narrate about every tantrum you throw and all your bowel movements like it is breaking news? As reported by TODAY, Jeannette Reyes and Robert Burton who are both newscasters for Fox 5 DC and ABC7 News respectively, decided to turn a mundane morning with their infant into a hilarious news segment.
The Washington D.C. couple and their 7-week-old baby Isabella went viral across several social media platforms after making their very own 'Baby News Network' video. In their viral Twitter video which was captioned: “When both of your parents are news anchors,” Reyes starts the video by greeting her daughter who just woke up from a nap. "Good morning, Bella! It's 9:52. Hopefully you slept well. Certainly, no one else did but we're not going to point any fingers. Let's send it over to Robert Burton for more on your weather," the mom starts the video in her professional and slightly exaggerated newscaster voice.
The clip switches to her husband Burton who is standing outside the house to give us an interesting weather report. "Well, JR, beautiful day outside, with temps in the mid-80s. No humidity,” he reports. “Will we get to enjoy it? Well, if spit-ups, feedings and diaper changes don't get in the way, we just might be able to make it out of here before midnight." Reyes takes over the reporting as the camera turns to her and Bella. "We have some breaking news—an explosion at the diaper station. Fortunately, no injuries have been reported and authorities tell us they do have a suspect in custody. Unfortunately, that suspect is not speaking at the moment but they have linked her to hundreds of other explosions," she says in the video.
Reyes starts reciting Twinkle Twinkle Little Star like a news anchor and netizens probably couldn’t hold in their laughter after that. "Well, that's all the time we have, folks," Burton adds to wrap up the report. "Thanks for watching the Baby News Network. This is BNN." The video garnered over 4 million views on TikTok and 400K likes on Twitter so far but this certainly isn’t the first time for Reyes when it comes to gaining internet fame.
She has amassed millions of followers on her social media handles by using her newscaster voice to narrate mundane situations with absolutely side-splitting results. According to Washingtonian, the newscaster revealed in an interview that “they are glad that their videos could make people smile.” “One of the things that stood out to me is how appreciative people were of positive, heartwarming content,” Reyes told the outlet. “It’s really touching to us to hear that. I know some people are going through tough times. It’s been a stressful couple of years. If we can make people smile, that means the world to us.” Well, in case you want more content from this couple other than their videos on social media, the audience can catch them narrating their meet-cute story on an episode of OWN’s Black Love.
