UPDATE: Earlier today, CNN anchor Poppy Harlow announced that she gave birth to her daughter, named Sienna, on Sunday evening.

"Sinisa and I are thrilled to welcome our daughter Sienna into the world," Harlow told TVNewser. "We feel incredibly blessed and are over the moon with excitement!"


Harlow, who is expecting a baby girl in the spring, had a scare Monday morning when she passed out on air. The anchor began slurring her words before she passed out, but once she came-to she took to Twitter to inform her followers that she was going to be OK. "Thank you all for your concern and messages! I am ok! Passed out briefly and am with the doctor now," she wrote. "So thankful to our amazing CNN team."

She wasn't on-camera when she passed out—a graphic covered her—but colleagues could be heard in the background responding to the surprising incident.

About an hour later, Harlow turned to Twitter once again to clear up the status of her unborn child. "Update from the hospital -- our little girl due this spring is doing just fine. Was a scare but we are both ok. Thank you all so much!" she added. Thank goodness!

She also addressed viewers on-camera, where she chalked the scary moment up to feeling overheated.

"For all of you on Twitter who are asking if I'm okay, thank you so much," Harlow said when she returned. "I got a little hot, and I passed out for a moment. I am fine."

Feel better, Poppy!

Harlow isn't the only notable to suffer some scary complications during pregnancy. Kim Kardashian had some struggles throughout her first and second pregnancy, but thankfully she and her children turned out just fine, too.
