Renee Chou, husband 'enamored' with baby Elsa

Posted May 21, 2014

WRAL Morning News anchor Renee Chou said Wednesday that she and her husband Mike have been "enamored" with Elsa, the baby girl they welcomed to the world almost two weeks ago. 

"We just spend hours looking at her and holding her," Chou said. "She's just darling. We're so happy to finally meet her and have her in our lives. She's beautiful."

Elsa Leelin was 7 pounds 3 ounces and, ironically enough, came into the world during the early-morning hours on May 9.

Chou said Wednesday that her time on the anchor desk in the morning has prepared her well for motherhood. 

"When I'm up early in the morning, it's all the same," she said. "That's when I'm normally up to be with you guys. Elsa has been really good through the overnight hours."

Elsa slept through her first live television appearance on Wednesday, but Chou said she can be feisty when she wants to be.

"She goes from zero to 60 just like that," she joked. "She has a healthy set of lungs."
