SOUTH Korean journalist Eva Pilgrim has made a name for herself as an ABC News correspondent.
Pilgrim is considered one of the most recognizable news faces in America.
Who is Eva Pilgrim?
Pilgrim, 39, is a journalist, newscaster and TV presenter from Seoul, South Korea.
In 2002, Pilgrim started her career as a web producer at WIS-TV in Columbia, South Carolina.
She then went on to work at WVVA for over two years until 2006, where she started working at Fox Charlotte.
The 39-year-old joined the ABC News network in 2016 as a co-anchor after a six-year stint at WXIN TV.
She is currently a co-anchor on ABC News but has been featured in many news shows over the years, including ABC World News Tonight with David Muir, Good Morning America and GMA’s Weekend Edition.
She reported the historic visit of Pope Francis to the United States as well as the Sago Mine Catastrophe.
In November 2019, Pilgrim legally married her longtime boyfriend, Ed Hartigan, in Miami.
Unfortunately, the couple had to postpone their wedding ceremony due to the coronavirus pandemic.
When is Eva Pilgrim’s baby due?
On October 1, Pilgrim announced on Instagram that she had a baby girl.
“Welcome to the world little Ella,” she wrote. “She already seems to know what she wants… and she isn’t shy about voicing her opinion.
“Seriously obsessed with this little girl,” she concluded.
The anchor included the hashtag, September baby.
In July 2021, the 39-year-old ABC journalist shared her pregnancy news on Good morning America.
Pilgrim even took to Instagram to announce her pregnancy, uploading a sweet photo of herself in a purple outfit with her baby belly.
“So… this is happening! As we round the turn into the third trimester thought I’d share… Hubby and I have a baby girl on the way! Super excited and overwhelmed with gratitude at this little miracle,” Pilgrim said.
On September 4, GMA’s Janai Norman, Whit Johnson and Dan Harris held a baby shower special for Pilgrim live on the air.
Pilgrim shared a series of flicks on IG and captioned them: “All the feels. I can’t help but feel overwhelmed by the love my GMA family has shown me and baby girl. 💚 So grateful for these people.”
