Katie Couric Becomes A First-Time Grandma After Daughter Ellie Welcomes Baby Boy

Katie Couric has added a new title to her résumé: grandma! The iconic journalist’s 32-year-old daughter Ellie welcomed her first baby with her husband Mark Dobrosky on Mar. 23 and Katie took to her Instagram to share photos of the newborn. “John Albert Dobrosky was born on his due date, Saturday, March 23rd at 8:23 am, just shy of seven pounds. He will be called Jay in honor of his maternal grandfather. Albert is after Mark’s paternal grandfather. Mom and Dad (Ellie and Mark) are over the moon (it was a full moon) I am thrilled to have my first grandchild; Carrie can’t wait to be a cool Aunt and Molner is enjoying handing out cigars. We feel so blessed,” she captioned the sweet post. The 67-year-old journalist was married to Jay Monahan from 1989 until 1998 when he died from colon cancer at only 42 years old. Their daughters, Ellie and Carrie, were only 7 and 2 years old when he passed, so Katie explained how her first grandchild’s name honors his late grandfather!
