Clayton’s Missing Wedding Ring: Again?

July 7, 2013

Morris’ marital “misstep.” Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris strangely sported no connubial band this Sunday morning: Stranger yet, FNC’s bronzed tech geek had no tan line on his ring finger. Perhaps, its absence was merely an oversight and some finger makeup was applied: after all, Clayton did just wear his marital bling yesterday. But, readers may remember that his suddenly missing wedding ring on F&FW during his first marriage to his “hot wife” Sara Morris did portend “Trouble in Paradise.”

But, hopefully, all is well with Clayton and his second lovely lady, Natali Morris nee Del Conte. After all they have two beautiful young children, almost three-year-old Miles Benjamin [vid], and one-year-old Avis Elizabeth. Nevertheless, the bad boy did get in trouble with Natali rather recently when their son Miles spilled the beans on Clayton’s probably benign trip to Hooters.

Regardless of Clayton and Natali’s state of affairs, if the past is precedent for the future, the author envisions a reappearance of Clayton’s wedding ring to his finger on the very next Fox & Friends Weekend edition.

Hooters for Clayton: Busted by Miles!

April 29, 2013

Natalie: “Oh, @ClaytonMorris, you got some ‘splaining to do!” Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris apparently wanted some extra spicy fare from a “really full” Hooters last month but came up embarrassingly empty. And, he got busted to boot by his boy Miles!

In a prickly Tweet about Clayton’s indiscreet adventure, Natali Morris nee Del Conte declared, “My 2 yr-old son: ‘Mommy we tried to go to Hooters but it was really full.” As an acerbic aside to her hubby, she added, “Oh @ClaytonMorris, you got some ‘splaining to do!”

Oops! Out of the mouth of Clayton’s babe. Straight to Natali’s ears!

Clayton & Natali Morris: “It’s a Girl”

May 9, 2012

Ava Elizabeth Morris arrives. Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris and his wife Natali nee Del Conte announced the birth of their beautiful newborn baby yesterday evening. Breaking the news, Clayton tersely Tweeted, “It’s a girl.” About forty-minutes later, Natalie proudly proclaimed, “It’s a girl! She’s healthy and lovely!”

Early this morning on Fox & Friends First, co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt shared the news with Clayton’s FNC fans. In “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” segment, Ainsley declared, “First, we start with the good. Meet the newest member  of the Fox & Friends family: weekend host Clayton Morris and his wife welcoming their baby girl Ava Elizabeth yesterday. She joins big brother Miles.” Meanwhile producers ran two pics of beautiful Ava: one of her in the arms of her doting dad and the other of  her with both adoring parents.

Apparently, Ava has completed the Morris household. When a Tweep teasingly admonished mama Morris to slow down, Natali declared, “No no I’m done now!”

Congratulation, Clayton and Natali!

“King” Jerrick: “I Guess I Should Say”

July 10, 2011

“I’m Mike in for, uh, what’s the guy’s name? Uh, Clayton.” After a critical Carpe Diem report yesterday, the “King of Philadelphia” Mike Jerrick seemed eager to assure Fox & Friends Weekend fans that he intended no snub yesterday to his F&FW successor and fellow Philly Clayton Morris. As CD noted, the F&FW alum and great failed to acknowledge Clayton for the second time consecutively on the show (as his replacement host). To make matters worse for Clayton,  his regular F&FW co-host Dave Briggs did not mention him either.

Today, F&FW producers seemed eager to assure Clayton and his fans that they meant no slight. At mid show today, Mike appeared to make light of his conspicuous omission: as the third hour began, he joked, “Hi, everybody! By the way, I guess I should say [that] I’m Mike in for, uh, what’s the guy’s name? Uh, Clayton.” As Mike then chuckled, Dave tried unsuccessfully to suppress a smile. Looking over at Mike, he answered, “His name is Clayton Morris on vacation this morning.”

Feigning ignorance, guest co-host Ainsley Earhardt “earnestly” asked, “Where is Clayton?” Slapping his knee for effect, Dave replied, “Clayton is out West in an undisclosed location.” Grinning at the intended intrigue, Mike interjected, “Is that right? In a bunker?” Dave replied, “I’ll just say out West with his wonderful wife and child. And, we miss them.”

Mike, bravo for your belated hat tip to Clayton.

[Author's aside: As to Clayton's whereabouts, no great mystery: He, his wife Natali nee Del Conte, and son Miles are camping in California on a family vacation.]

Clayton: “My Beautiful Wife Natali”

December 26, 2010

Unveiled! Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris finally introduced his new bride Natali Morris nee Del Conte to his F&FW audience on Christmas Day. Almost five months ago, co-anchor Dave Briggs had teased viewers with her identity when referring to the mother of Clayton’s newly arrived child as merely Natali. More recently, approximately two weeks ago, Clayton briefly displayed an album of his son Miles (which included photos of Natali with Miles) but made no mention of Natali. However, yesterday, Clayton proudly showed off Natali to his F&FW fans and proudly proclaimed her to be “my beautiful wife Natali.”

In the final segment of the 2010 Fox & Friends Christmas edition Friday, producers aired holiday photos of the on-air co-hosts’ respective families. When a photo of a duo of diminutive dogs with bows in their hair ran, Ainsley intoned, ” Here are my babies. That’s Sacks Fifth Avenue on the left and Sassy Girl on the right.”* Then, as a pic of Dave and his family appeared sitting in front of the Christmas tree, Dave declared, “My family, my wife Brandi, my beautiful kids, Emerson and William. Merry Christmas to you guys!” Subsequently, as a photograph of Clayton (holding Miles) and Natali standing in front of the Christmas tree aired, Clayton announced, “And, there’s my beautiful wife Natali and my first little bundle of joy Miles on his first Christmas.”

Yes, Clayton may have appeared to have wait a wee bit long to introduce his new wife Natali to all of the Fox & Friends Weekend family. However, perhaps, appropriately, Clayton waited until this season of love and Advent to introduce her. Regardless, Merry Christmas, Natali!

Clayton: Natali Who?

December 12, 2010

“My son [Miles Benjamin Morris] here.”* And, his mother by his side is, Mr. Morris? Sorry, Fox & Friends fans, still no introduction necessary, apparently. Interestingly, F&FW co-host Clayton Morris seems to be taking the Prince Charles tact when it comes to introducing his new wife Natali Morris nee Del Conte to his F&FW fans.

As the reader may remember, Mediaite.com reported in April that it had received a “tip” that married F&FW co-anchor Clayton and a certain guest, Natali Del Conte, were having an affair; that this same Natali was rumored to be pregnant with their love child; and that Clayton’s then wife [Sara Batterson] had filed for divorce. Since then, Clayton and Natali have both acknowledged the birth of their son Miles (July 27) and have subsequently married (October 20). However, in the author’s memory, Clayton has never disclosed on Fox & Friends that Natali Del Conti is his wife. (N.B. During a Clayton-diaper-changing segment shortly after Mile’s birth, co-host Dave Briggs appeared to begin Natali’s introduction to the F&FW audience for Clayton by crediting Natali by first name for sending in the video.) Today, when given a perfect opportunity to do so, Clayton avoided it.

During a segment entitled “Gadget Gift Guide: Clayton’s Top Tech Picks for Mom” with co-anchors Dave and Alisyn Camerota, Clayton touted MacBook Air with an app iLife that helps one generate photo-albums. Picking up one such album, Clayton commented, “I created this one of my son here.” Subsequently, pointing to the album named “Miles Benjamin Morris 2010″ (with a darling cover photo of Clayton’s son), Aly interjected, “Now, see, I want this but I want it with pictures of Miles because he’s the cutest baby in the world.” Proudly opening up the album for the viewers to enjoy, Clayton displayed three more photos (one of Miles alone and two others of him with his loving mom Natali). Oddly, of his beautiful new bride Natali, Clayton uttered nary a word.

At least, not yet.

Clayton Weds Natali

October 21, 2010

Today  CNET news anchor Natali Del Conte announced that she and Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Clayton Morris tied the knot yesterday. During CNET’s 404 Podcast, the beautiful bride also revealed that they had wed in a “very little ceremony” at city hall during her lunch break. As to her new hubby, she proudly proclaimed, “He is an amazing father [to their almost three-month-old son, Miles Benjamin Morris]….He’s a better father than I ever, ever could have imagined.” Blissfully, she gushed, “I’ve been so lucky!”

Best wishes, Natali, and congratulations, Clayton!

Natali: “My Baby Boy Miles”

August 1, 2010

Clayton is his father. Sunday CNET TV anchor Natali Del Conte confirmed Sunday that she is indeed that “Natali” that is the mother of Clayton’s child, Miles Benjamin Morris. In a Tweet yesterday evening, Natali stated, “My baby boy Miles made his first network TV appearance today! He’s a star!! http://bit.ly/9xZpvv” In this missive, she linked to the Fox & Friends Weekend video entitled, “Welcome Miles Benjamin Morris! Clayton shares photos and home movies of his newborn son.”

In that clip played on F&FW Sunday morning, Clayton is shown at home changing the diaper of his son for the very first time. Co-anchor Dave Briggs stated that the video had been sent in by Miles’ mother and identified her only as “Natali.” Even though viewers may have had little question as to her identity, Natali herself removed all doubts Sunday evening in her Tweet.

Welcome, Miles!

Natali: Morris’ “Mamma Mia”

July 31, 2010

Clayton’s baby boy: Miles Benjamin Morris. As Fox & Friends Weekend began this morning, co-host Clayton Morris joyfully showed off photos of his newborn son and himself to his co-hosts, Alisyn Camerota and Dave Briggs, and to his F&FW audience. As he did, the now single Clayton expressed his elation at being a father but never showed a photo of the mother of his child nor even mentioned her. However, later, during the show, Dave let the cat out of the proverbial bag by naming her twice.

Of course, fans of Clayton have long had a good idea of the name of his presumed paramour. On April 12, Mediaite.com disclosed that it had received a tip that a married Clayton had a relationship with CNET anchor, Natali Del Conte and that she was rumored to be pregnant with their love child. (Further, the source indicated that Clayton’s wife Sara Batterson Morris had started divorce proceedings.) On June 20 (Father’s Day) on F&FW, Clayton revealed, “I’m going to be a new dad”: Only a day earlier, Natalie had Tweeted, “My mom and sister are throwing me the baby shower of the century today.”

However, recent tweets by Clayton, Natalie, and tech friend Ryan Block appeared to conclusively identity Clayton’s lady. On Monday (July 27), Clayton joyfully Tweeted, I’m better than ever. Had a son a today. Was at hospital all day. Trying to finally sleep now.” On Tuesday (July 28), Natalie Tweeted, “Excited to take my son home from the hospital today. That’s right, it’s a boy! Healthy and handsome!” Tellingly, the very next morning Wednesday, Clayton Tweeted, “I was supposed to be in today but just had my son. First night home from hospital.” Then, Thursday, in a now deleted Tweet, Ryan Block wrote, “Still catching up from Seattle, but belated congratulations to @natalidelconte and @claytonmorris on the arrival of Miles!”

If Clayton or Natali’s more casual followers were still unaware of their apparent love child, Dave Briggs appeared intent on spreading the word to them. In the final hour of F&FW, Dave and Aly seemingly surprised Clayton with footage of him changing Miles: Dave added that Miles’ mother Natali had sent in the video. If the viewer missed it the first time, Dave repeated her name. Perhaps, at the behest of Clayton, Dave began the introduction of Natali to his F&FW viewers.

Even though neither Clayton nor Natali have yet acknowledged that they have a child together publicly, to the author’s knowledge, it appears pellucidly clear that they do indeed share a son–and his name is Miles Benjamin Morris.
