NBC News Reporter's Son Adorably Interrupts Mom's Live Broadcast

NBC national security correspondent Courtney Kube had a live-TV moment on Wednesday when her son wandered on-set as she reported on the developing situation between Turkey and Syria.

He then appeared at Kube's elbow, reaching up for her while saying, "Mommy", as she struggled to finish her sentence.

Professor Kelly was discussing the impeachment of South Korea's president Park Geun-hye in March 2017 when his daughter Marion, then four, and son James, then one, burst into the room.

"Excuse me, my kids are here!"

The BBC's video on Twitter of the incident now has over three million views.

A producer at the Washington DC studios eventually made the smart decision to cut to a map of the Middle East so Mrs Kube could get someone to take her son away.

Any parent who's had to bring their kids with them to work these school holidays will sympathise with Courtney Kube, a TV journalist in the USA whose young son wandered onto the set while she was broadcasting live.
