In October, Lisa revealed her pregnancy on the “Anderson Cooper” show, telling the silver fox, “I was trying to keep it quiet for a long time, but I”m starting to get to the point where it looks like I have this really big beer belly. I figured I”d better share it publicly.”

When reached, Ms. Ling”s rep told PEOPLE, “Lisa and Jett are resting comfortably. The proud parents are enjoying the first day of parenthood and are looking forward to bringing their daughter home.”
