What a wonderful gift after such a difficult year!
Laura Ling, who, along with fellow journalist Euna Lee, was held in government captivity in North Korea for five months, has given birth to a daughter with husband Iain Clayton named Li Jefferson Clayton!
Ling reportedly gave her new baby the middle name Jefferson as a tribute to former President Bill (Jefferson) Clinton, who was instrumental in securing her freedom!
We're so thrilled that everyone is safe and sound! Congratulations to the happy new family!
