CLEVELAND — There is a new addition to the 3News family!

On Wednesday, Front Row anchor Sara Shookman and her husband Angelo welcomed their new baby boy to the world. Luca Angelo James was born at 3:27 a.m. He weighs in at 8 lbs., 4 ozs., and checks in at 20 3/4 inches tall.

Luca is Sara and Angelo's second child. Their daughter Isla was born in 2020.

"We’re so thrilled to be adding to our family. Isla loves babies and can’t wait to be a big sister," Sara said when she announced her pregnancy on Front Row in November of 2021. "Angelo and I each have one younger sister. There’s no love like that sibling relationship."
