JD: Kiran, “So You’re Pregnant Right?”

June 15, 2009

Last Tuesday, American Morning co-anchor John Roberts stirred the pot to his colleague Kiran Chetry’s discomfit. In a pre-ad preview to a ten-week-pregnancy-gender test story, American Morning co-anchor John Roberts turned to colleague Kiran Chetry and commented, “So you’re pregnant, right, and you’re going along in your pregnancy. Do you want to know the gender of your child?” Smiling abashedly, Kiran grabbed John’s wrist and insisted, “Don’t all start rumors, John. No, no, no, no, no.”

Of course, whether Kiran meant that she was not gravid or whether she meant she did not want John to broach the topic further was left open to interpretation. When the commercial break ended and before the segment with Dr. Sanjay Gupta began, John declared, “Typically, the first question expectant parents want to know is, ‘Is it a girl, or is it a boy?” Then looking at Kiran and trying to quell the queries of Kiran, he declared, “Not like Kiran because she’s not pregnant.” Off camera, Kiran laughed but said nothing.

Whether the mother of sixteen-month-old Christopher Chetry Knowles is with child again is doubtful. However, when given the opportunity, Kiran, an only child, did not seem to close the door conclusively that she may be adding to Chris’ quiver. The lithe lovely certainly does not appear gravid but she has kept her figure well during her earlier pregnancies.

Regardless, Kiran probably will not be sipping Coke and nibbling Nabisco crackers any time soon–at least, on camera.*

Veiling Kiran’s Viands

November 6, 2008

Since this author reported Kiran Chetry’s Coke and Nabisco Premium crackers breakfast about two weeks ago, has AM’s Janelle Rodriguez been trying to conceal what Kiran consumes? Kiran’s Coke bottle (and ubiquitous Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts coffee cups) has been replaced with nondescript white disposable cups and her Nabisco box (and McDonald’s wrappers) has given way to aluminum foil and saran wrap. (Nevertheless, Kiran has managed to sneak a Red Bull or two with the back of the can facing the camera.)

Perhaps, AM does not wish to fuel any further baby speculation. Or it simply may no longer want to promote brand names inadvertently. Or both.

An interesting aside: in his AM health segment today, Dr. Sanjay Gupta said that Kiran would know about as good as anybody that women need to think about prenatal care up to four months in advance. Merely a random remark?
