Entertainment correspondent Courtney Friel returned today to Fox News after almost four months of maternity leave. In her first appearance back on FNC since giving birth to her son Cash Hudson Evans (other than her emergency reportage of the Japanese tsunami on March 11), Courtney covered the X-Factor auditions in Newark, New Jersey, for Fox & Friends. Introducing the bonny blonde, F&F co-anchor Brian Kilmeade announced,”Courtney Friel has been scrambled off maternity leave: She’s now back full-time.”*
And, indeed, she was. Dressed to impress, Courtney wore a sleek black-leather-jacket-and-matching-ebony-pants ensemble. Strategically hiding a few baby pounds underneath or not, the sexy former Maxim model was buoyant, beautiful, and non-bloated. As she had promised her fans, she had “pop[ped]…[her]…little baby out” and had returned “in a few months”–none the worse for wear.
Welcome back, Courtney!
