Video: Blogger makes joyous announcement on wholesome late-night show

posted at 5:21 pm on June 7, 2013 by Mary Katharine Ham

Well, technically, it’s Greg Gutfeld who makes the announcement, but I was there. I figured it was about time, and appropriate since red-eyed is probably a pretty decent description of my life starting in August.

More from the show, starring the TV’s youngest commentator, below:

MKH is getting ‘punished with a baby.’

FANTASTIC!

sandee on June 7, 2013 at 5:38 PM

Great news after all this.

docflash on June 7, 2013 at 5:38 PM

Congrats MKH to you and your growing family!

I don’t know if this is a trend these days or what but my neighbors just had a “gender annoucement” BBQ. Something to consider if you want to continue to be a hipster.

Happy Nomad on June 7, 2013 at 5:39 PM

congratulations!!!!!

ted c on June 7, 2013 at 5:40 PM

Congrats, MKH! All the best to you and your future little bundle of joy!

PatriotGal2257 on June 7, 2013 at 5:41 PM

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!

CurtZHP on June 7, 2013 at 5:41 PM

Ha, thanks everyone! And, we’re not finding out the gender, so no hipster parties for us. Just a BIG surprise.

Mary Katharine Ham on June 7, 2013 at 5:41 PM

They know what causes that now……

SailorMark on June 7, 2013 at 5:41 PM

Congrats, MKH.

Sitting here with my 18 month old Patton asleep on my lap, you can’t even imagine the joy that awaits. Congrats on the “punishment.”

So half the nursery’s going to be pink, and the other half blue?

Steve Eggleston on June 7, 2013 at 5:48 PM

This is the BEST news, Mary Katherine. Congrats!

May we know when to expect Baby Ham?

Grace_is_sufficient on June 7, 2013 at 5:48 PM

Congratulation, and may the Lord bless you with a healthy, happy baby!

Kjeil on June 7, 2013 at 5:48 PM

The world can use an MKH-he or MKH-she.

BuckeyeSam on June 7, 2013 at 5:49 PM

We love babies around our house, and congratulations to you! I’ll only offer one word of warning to you: careful what language you use. I’ll never forget what happened one day as I was driving into Newark airport and a cab cut me off. I said something under my breath and thought I was safe until my three year old in the back carseat said, “Daddy, what’s an *******?” I passed it off as a kind of airplane, and thought i got away with it. But, no, he later asked his mother the same question, to my dismay.

Best wishes to you and your family!

MTF on June 7, 2013 at 5:49 PM

Congrats! That is awesome. Don’t stop at one though. We need to out breed the left! Have a bakers dozen, or two. :P

NotCoach on June 7, 2013 at 5:49 PM

Life will never be the same….hope it is as joyful as it was meant to be.

Don L on June 7, 2013 at 5:50 PM

Well, if you want to get any serious reading done… DO IT NOW.

darkpixel on June 7, 2013 at 5:51 PM

Congrats, MKH!

Gutfield, it’s never OK to call a baby or fetus “it.”

“Him or her” is good, or “the child.”

itsnotaboutme on June 7, 2013 at 5:52 PM

MKH is with squirrel?
Congratulations! Nothing better in life.

philw1776 on June 7, 2013 at 5:52 PM

Yay! And he or she can call me Babboo. :) Congrats!

Congrats to MK Hammer and hubby!!!..:)

Dire Straits on June 7, 2013 at 5:54 PM

Congrats MKH. Didn’t know you were married.

HotAirLib on June 7, 2013 at 5:55 PM

Congratulations, on the “mistake” you’re getting “punished” for, according to The One.

Best mistakes my wife and I have ever made. :)

funkengruven on June 7, 2013 at 5:55 PM

Congratulations Mary Katherine!

wren on June 7, 2013 at 5:55 PM

Congratulations.

And what better place to make such an announcement than a wholesome late-night show featuring a nude gargoyle and a dude who wants to marry his cat?

There Goes the Neighborhood on June 7, 2013 at 5:55 PM

Ah, thanks. It’s nice to hear some good news on a day like this. Many blessings to you and your family. Congratulations!

AZCoyote on June 7, 2013 at 5:56 PM

Resist We Much on June 7, 2013 at 5:53 PM

By the time you use it, it will have self-destructed :-)

For the record, I may or may not be driving a 1964 Pontiac GTO on my search for the 32nd Baskin-Robbin flavor to go along with my faceless facade.

Steve Eggleston on June 7, 2013 at 5:58 PM

Congratulations on joining the toughest but most rewarding job..EVAH!!!! Becoming a parent :-)

Congrats! I hope you didn’t promise Ed your first born for the job.

blammm on June 7, 2013 at 6:04 PM

Will you name the baby NeoKong…? Just kidding. I adore you. Congrats

NeoKong on June 7, 2013 at 6:04 PM

I’m thrilled for you, MKH. And while your child will have a right to his or her own choices (we hope), it would be great to have an MKH–The Next Generation in a couple of decades.

nkviking75 on June 7, 2013 at 6:06 PM

Bravo. That’s wonderful news. Wishing all goes well for you and your entire family.

Care to weigh in on the whole Megyn Kelly – Erick Erickson thing ?

mdavt on June 7, 2013 at 6:06 PM

Congrats. You’ll make a great Mom.

faraway on June 7, 2013 at 6:08 PM

Congratulations.

The NSA knew a month ago.

But did they bother to write?

At least slip a little more nursery furniture into your Google search results?

Sadly, no.

JEM on June 7, 2013 at 6:08 PM

Ha, thanks everyone! And, we’re not finding out the gender, so no hipster parties for us. Just a BIG surprise.

please please kiss it for me
mommy mommy i had a bad dream
please please sleep with me

mommy mommy tell me why
tell me tell me why you cry

i cry because you grow to fast
and i know this time can never last
one day soon you will grow
the time is coming this i know

one day soon i will see
an awesome sight in front of me
all grown up you will be
and the mommy i hear not meant for me

for now i hold you close to me
kissing that sweet little knee
i tuck you in and kiss your cheek
and then i watch you while you sleep

i’ll hold on tight while i can
because one day soon you’ll be a man

Congratulations MKH. being a mom is a truly awe inspiring thing. best of luck to you and yours!

From It’s a wonderful life:

George Bailey: Mary Hatch, why in the world did you ever marry a guy like me?

Mary: To keep from being an old maid!

George Bailey: You could have married Sam Wainright, or anybody else in town…

Mary: I didn’t want to marry anybody else in town. I want my baby to look like you.

George Bailey: You didn’t even have a honeymoon. I promised you…

[stops]

George Bailey: Your what?

Mary: My baby!

George Bailey: [stuttering] Your, your, your, ba- Mary, you on the nest?

Mary: George Baily Lassos Stork!

George Bailey: [still stuttering] Lassos a stork?

[Mary nods]

George Bailey: What’re’ya… You mean you’re… What is it, a boy or a girl?

Mary: [nods enthusiasticly] Mmmm-hmmm!

If a girl, I recommend naming her Candy Diane.

Yes, Candy D Ham, I went there.

The_Livewire on June 7, 2013 at 6:43 PM

I didn’t know she was married.

TX-96 on June 7, 2013 at 6:43 PM

“a little tiny person inside you” –Greg / “camera ready” – Mary Katharine :)

Congrats Mary Katharine – whoo hoo!

inviolet on June 7, 2013 at 6:44 PM

With a last name like Ham; you could totally screw up your child for life by giving it the wrong first name. :)
