Jenn Hobby, former "Bert Show" host and now mid-day jock at country station Kicks 101.5, had her first baby this past Saturday.

On her Facebook page, she announced the birth:

Lauren Louise Rivera. 6lb 13 oz. 19 inches long. We are in love.

The announcement Saturday had received nearly 10,000 "likes" on Facebook out of her 23,000 fans.

Hobby, 36, married principal Grant Rivera , 38, in November 2010 and said on air while still with the Bert Show that they began trying to have a baby from the get go.

“I was honest off the bat with him that I wanted kids and he was on board,” Hobby said in an interview after the show.

After going the regular route, they went to a fertility specialist Dr. Mark Perloe and discovered she had a cervix problem. Once that  issue was fixed, she was able to get pregnant. Her due date was April 18, 2013. The baby beat that date by five days.

From Eminem to Garth Brooks to One Direction, fall offers colossal concert choices

To call September “super” would be like calling Garth Brooks “a country singer.” It’s a lot bigger than that.
