This is the adorable moment a toddler interrupts his TV presenter mother’s weather forecast for a hug live on air.
Meteorologist Leslie Lopez was midway through presenting a live weather forecast to thousands of viewers when her ten-month-old son, Nolan, crawled up to her in front of the camera.
Lopez, like many other parents, have been forced to work from home amid the coronavirus pandemic, juggling bringing up children with working a full-time job.
Video footage of the infant’s intrusion shows Nolan clinging on to Lopez’s leg as she delivered Thursday’s forecast for KABC-TV, in her makeshift studio at home.
Un-flustered, Lopez continues with her forecast, albeit while holding back laughter, before caving in to her son’s demands for a cuddle in front of the viewers at home.
Lopez jokes ‘He (Nolan) walks now guys, so I’ve lost all control’, as she signs off her forecast with Nolan in her arms.
In October NBC’s Pentagon correspondent Courtney Kube was talking about Turkish air strikes in Syria when her son appeared on camera live on air.
She later explained that ‘breaking news in Syria didn’t line up with the pre-school drop-off’, so she had to bring her two children to work, according to NBC.
Similarly, earlier this year, Professor Robert Kelly was interrupted when he was being interviewed on BBC News, live in the UK.
Both of his children burst into his office as he spoke to a presenter in the studio about South Korea. He managed to somehow keep his composure and finish the interview despite all of the commotion going on behind him.
