The Houston meteorologist’s family got a little bigger over the long holiday weekend. On Sunday, ABC 13’s Rachel Briers announced that she had recently given birth to her second child, a girl named Lane. Briers had her first daughter, Tenley, back in March 2020, and in August of this year, she posted on social media that she was pregnant with her second, writing, “THIS TWISTER HAS A SISTER! Briers baby girl will be born in January 2023.” New photos shared by Bryers over the weekend show Tenley, now almost 3, holding her new sister in her arms.
About two weeks ago, Briers prepped ABC 13 audiences for her upcoming maternity leave via Instagram, informing viewers that they would “start to see less” of her as her baby “is coming very soon.” Meteorologist Alan Shoemaker of KRGV Channel 5 News in the Rio Grande Valley is temporarily filling in for Briers.
