Molly Henneberg: Back From Maternity Leave

April 24, 2012

Molly: “Baby Jacquelyn…I miss her.” Today, FNC correspondent Molly Hennenberg was warmly welcomed back from her maternity leave by Happening Now co-anchor Jenna Lee. After Molly’s report (on Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s controversial trips home), Jenna queried, “Molly, where have you been by the way? Welcome back! It’s been a while since we’ve seen each other.”* Radiant, Molly answered, “Thank you, Jenna and Jon [Scott]….It’s so good to see you both. I’m back from maternity leave. And, it’s wonderful to see everybody again.”

Meanwhile, as HN producers ran a pic of Molly holding her darling new daughter, Jenna inquired, “We have some photos just to share with our viewers so they know we’re not kidding. You have a cute little baby there….What’s her name?” Joyfully, Molly proclaimed, “Baby Jacquelyn. Her name is Jacquelyn Amanda. And, I miss her, and she’s just the sweetest little baby.”

Subsequently, as a second photo of a lone blue-eyed, brown-haired Jaquelyn in her pretty pink lace dress and then a third of her with her proud papa [Marine Capt. Chris Nagel] at the park aired,  Molly animatedly remarked, “Thanks for putting up the pictures of me. First-time mom knows, it’s, it’s a joy!” In response, perhaps, eagerly anticipating her own future maternal bliss with her new military stud hub [Navy SEAL Leif Babin], Jenna declared, “I love the picture of your husband and your little girl in matching sunglasses….That’s a great shot….The little girl is darling.”

Your “new Redskins fan” is darling indeed, Molly. Congratulations to you and Chris!

FNC’s Molly Henneberg Preggers

August 31, 2011

“A new Redskins fan later this year.” FNC correspondent Molly Henneberg announced her pregnancy this morning on Fox & Friends. As her 8:32 a.m. ET report from the White House ended, the life-long, DIEHARD Washington Redskins fan joyfully asked, “Did I tell you all that my husband [Marine Capt. Chris Nagel] and I are expecting a new Redskins fan later this year?”

When the co-hosts had clapped and had offered their hearty congratulations, co-anchor Gretchen Carlson asked, “What’s your due date?” Radiant, Molly answered, “December 25th, Christmas Day!” Later, she disclosed, “It’s a little girl. We’re going to name her Jacqueline after my mom.”

Congratulations, Molly and Chris!

Kelly: Brian, “O-tay, Buckwheat!”

October 20, 2008

FNC Washington correspondent Kelly Wright did not exactly relish being called the new Molly Henneberg, the name of his blond white Washington bureau colleague, a die-hard Washington Redskins fan. After Kelly complained of Washington being “dissed” with no Redskins game news, Brian Kilmeade said that he would put him on if he “cut the highlights.” Steve Doocy asked, “Is he the new Molly Henneberg?” Brian replied, “He is the new Molly, baby!” Kelly retorted, “Oh, tay, Buckwheat,” mimicking the controversially stereotypical black character in Hal Roach’s popular children’s series.

Seeming to sense some possible racial implications to the exchange, Steve raised his eyebrows and shook his head. However, without thinking Brian responded, “At least it’s not Stymie,” another black “Our Gang” character. After Steve gave him the eye, Brian quickly added, “I no longer go by the nickname Spanky,” a white main child actor in the show. Coming to Brian’s aid, Steve joked, “Not at work, at least.” Perhaps, oblivious to any subtext, Gretchen Carlson just hid her face in laughter.
