Veronica De La Cruz has given birth to a baby!
A baby boy!
The Early Today show host has named the little man, Hartley Eric.
What a beautiful name! How did she choose that one?
"Before my brother died, I started an online campaign to raise money for a life-saving heart transplant. Thousands of compassionate Twitter followers came out to support the effort and we lovingly referred to them as Eric's Twitter Army. They all displayed banners on their online avatars that read, '[heart] Eric,' which is where my son's name comes from. If you look at my own social media profile, you will see still see a heart followed by the name Eric. That is what inspired my son's name. After the pain and devastation of losing Eric almost four years ago, having a healthy baby feels like an incredible miracle. Of course, he couldn't be any more beautiful. I think I can safely say I have finally met the love of my life."
Aww, that's so sad and sweet at the same time!
Congratulations to Veronica and her brand new baby boy.
We wish the absolute best to both of you!!!
