Marylyn Welcomes Newest Member of NTV Family


He's a real firecracker! Turns out somebody wanted to enter this world with a bang, as Marylyn Barnett welcomed Anson John on the Fourth of July.

Marylyn and her husband welcomed their baby boy at 6:22 p.m. He weighed in at 7.2 pounds and is 19.75" long.

Mom and baby are said to be doing well, but probably didn't expect fireworks in their honor.

Anson was officially due in a few days, but the countdown had been on -- as NTV asked viewers to guess when he'd make his debut.
