The expectant star noted that she is “feeling great and [the] baby is healthy.”

Al adopted Courtney in 1987 with his ex-wife, Alice Bell. After moving on with Deborah, the couple welcomed daughter Leila, 24, and son Nick, 20.

The journalist’s family has had a tumultuous year, with Nicholas starting college in August 2022 and Al suffering a major health scare three months later.
