Couric’s daughter, Ellie Dobrosky, age 32, has brought into the world a bundle of joy that has the whole family celebrating. The announcement was not just any ordinary baby news; it was filled with personal touches and deep family significance, especially when it came to the baby’s name.

Recounting the events, Couric shared on her website the exact moment she embraced her new title. “On Saturday at 8:23 a.m., I officially became a grandmother,” she penned with evident excitement. The anticipation built as she narrated how they were advised to reach the hospital by 8:30 a.m., only to be greeted outside the maternity wing with a text from her son-in-law, Mark, exclaiming, “IT’S A BOY!”

The joy of the moment was palpable as Couric, alongside her husband and daughter Carrie, waited with bated breath, likening their anticipation to “kids on Christmas morning.” Their patience was rewarded with the first glimpse of the family’s newest addition, John Albert Dobrosky, born right on schedule on the morning of March 23rd.

The choice of the newborn’s name is a touching homage to the influential Johns in Ellie’s life, including her father, grandfather, uncle, and stepfather, not to mention Mark’s paternal grandfather, after whom “Albert” is named. The baby, affectionately nicknamed Jay, in honor of his maternal grandfather, is already surrounded by a legacy of love and tradition.

Couric also shared the unique way Ellie announced her pregnancy. Before heading to a Taylor Swift concert, Ellie and her sister Carrie presented Couric with a friendship bracelet inscribed with “Granny to be,” a moment of surprise and joy for Couric, who was eager yet patient to share the news with the world.
