Brandi Briggs Delivers: Dave’s New “Valentine”

February 15, 2012

Logan: “Isn’t she lovely?” Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Dave Briggs and his wife Brandi welcomed their newest daughter, Logan Briggs, to their family yesterday, Valentine’s Day. To the tune of Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely?” this morning, F&F co-anchor Brian Kilmeade announced the birth of Logan as producers aired the “Shot of the Day,” a lovely sleeping Logan wearing a cute pink hoodie and swaddled in a cozy baby blanket. Dave and Brandi’s literal bundle of love weighed 6 lbs. 11 oz. Logan is the youngest of three: her sibs include older sister Emerson and big brother William. Her doting dad dubbed her “my Valentine.”

Dave, remember that bottle of Dom that you “promised” on F&FW Sunday to give Brandi if she had it on Valentine’s Day: she certainly deserves it. Congratulations, Dave and Brandi!

[Author’s aside: Yesterday, Dave gave his Twitter followers the real scoop, Tweeting, “Briggs boys are officially outnumbered! Baby Logan is my Valentine, 6 lbs-11 ounces, 20.5 inches. http://lockerz.com/s/183869846.”%5D

Update: Dave revealed Logan’s middle name on F&FW this morning (February 19): it is Pauline. F&FW – 02/19/12 (@ 6:03 a.m. ET)

Update 2:┬áCarpe Diem correction. Even though Dave announced the birth of Logan in a Valentine Day Tweet and called her his Valentine, she was actually born a day earlier. After the “Shot of the Day,” actually multiple pics of Dave’s newborn, Juliet queried, “She was born the day before Valentine’s Day, wasn’t she?” Dave answered, “She was born on Monday. Yeah, we almost had a Valentine baby.” F&FW – 02/19/12 (@ 7:33 a.m. ET)

Jacko: F&F’s Faux Facts

June 26, 2009

Today Fox & Friends’ “News by the Numbers” seemed more like “Michael Jackson Fan Fiction” by Steve Doocy.* In this segment “dedicated to the career of Michael Jackson,” Steve claimed that Jackson was the “only artist ever to get in twice” into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and that Jackson’s thirteen Grammys and number one hits were both “record-setting.” Not quite.

As to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Steve, at least, forgot Paul McCartney who was inducted as a member of the Beatles and as a solo artist.** With regard to Grammys, Stevie Wonder with 22 surpasses Jacko (13) as a solo male artist.*** Likewise, pertaining to record number one singles, Elvis Presley, Rock & Roll’s King, with 17 bests Pop’s King (13).****

Speaking of records, who was fact-checking F&F’s record today?

[There is no doubt that Michael Jackson was an incredible talent. As his life is memorialized, there is no need to over-hype. Appreciate him for he was: another great conflicted artist.]
