TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – WFLA welcomes two new babies to the family as reporter/anchor Allyson Henning and executive producer Alix Staats bring their new bundles of joy into the world.
Allyson is the weekend anchor for News Channel 8 and a Sarasota Bureau reporter. She and her husband José welcomed baby Mateo last week.
Allyson said Mateo was happy, healthy and hungry! His “big sister” Ginger, the family dog, makes Mateo feel welcome and comfortable as she regularly checks on her little brother.
She would like to extend a special thank you for the support she received from people throughout the Tampa Bay area during her pregnancy.
But that’s not all.
One of WFLA’s executive producers also gave birth to a baby girl, Penelope, last week. Alix and her husband said baby Penelope was tiny but healthy, weighing just over five pounds.
Last month, WFLA Now’s JB Biunno and his wife Devan welcomed their first son, JJ.
Congratulations to Allyson and Alix and their families!
