“Happy Father’s Day soon to you [Clayton Morris]: Soon enough it will be Happy Father’s Day for you.”* So declared Fox & Friends colleague Dave Briggs to co-host Clayton as a beaming co-anchor Alisyn Camerota gave Clayton her rapt attention. Biting his fingernail and grinning sheepishly, Clayton confirmed, “To me. Isn’t that crazy? Yeah, I’m going to be a new dad.”
Smiling, Clayton bent down on the curvy couch, saying, ” I got a new gift actually already…. Check this out.” When he proudly displayed a baby jumper with his fave Phillies emblazoned on it, Aly cooed, “Oh, my gosh. That’s adorable.” Interjecting, Dave asked, “Now we don’t know boy or girl yet, right?” Clayton answered, “No, don’t know boy or girl so we have to get neutral colors and a lot of dots.”
In response, Dave promised, “I will get some Rockies, Red Sox gear on the way for little Morris.” Aly kiddingly added, “I’ll get some pink stuff.” Turning serious, she stated, “We’re very excited about a new member of the Fox & Friends family. Concurring, Dave exclaimed, “Congratulations!”
Interestingly, Clayton, apparently now divorced from Sara Batterson, failed to mention the mother-to-be of his child. However, yesterday Clayton’s rumored paramour Natali del Conte (who is expecting her baby in August) Tweeted, “My mom and sister are throwing me the baby shower of the century today. Big production at the Del Conte house today.” Like Clayton, Del Conte does not know if her baby is a boy or a girl according to del Conte’s response to a Twitter follower. N.B. To the author’s knowledge, neither Clayton nor del Conte has publicly confirmed rumors that Clayton is the father.
