Pregnant NBC TV anchor Natalie Pasquarella's water broke on live TV but don't go looking for a dramatic video. A nondescript, nervous laugh is all that you will see when you watch the exact moment when the anchor's water broke on live television. Till the feed finishes, there is nothing else that gives away the life-changing moment.

Natalie, a news anchor with NBC News 4 in New York, was live in the middle of the discussion about Twitter’s plan to increase its character count. The scene shifted from the Twitter feed to the studio where Natalie can be seen sitting in the company of three more panelists.

The 35-year-old then lets out a laugh, and hands over the question to a fellow panelist. As other news anchors point out in the clip below, that laugh was the precise moment when Natalie knew that the baby was coming! And she didn’t so much as flinch, but calmly waited for her live to end before letting the others know that she was going into labour.

Watch the video here:


She was taken to the hospital by News 4 New York at 11's executive producer and others, where she met her husband, Jamin.

While he did arrive about a month earlier than expected, after a 13-hour-long labour, Natalie and Jamin became parents to a healthy baby boy. They named him Jamin James Pastore.

In this heartwarming photo Natalie shared on Instagram three days ago, she thanks everyone for their wishes.
