KENDALL (CBS4) – Cynthia Demos, anchor of the 5:30 p.m. newscast on CBS4 News and CBS4 News on TV33 at 10p.m., is the proud mother of a new baby girl.
Baby Brooke Rubino is a bundle of joy for Demos and her husband Matt Rubino. Brooke is their first child.
She was born January 4th at 7:58 pm at Baptist Hospital weighing in at a healthy 6 pounds, 15 ounces and19 and half inches long.
At less than a day old, Brooke has no idea about the hours leading up to her delivery which began Monday after Demos finished the 5:30 p.m. newscast on CBS4.
“I did the 5:30 show. I went home for dinner and I never came back,” said Demos to CBS4’s Jorge Estevez who visited her in the hospital.
Demos had begun what would become 18 hours of contractions.
“How would you describe them”, asked Estevez.
“Painful, very painful,” said Demos with a laugh.
How did dad Matt Rubino do during mom’s contraction marathon?
“Did she hit you or blame you”, asked Estevez.
“Actually she was nice, thanks to the epidural,” said Rubino.
But when Brooke was ready to meet her parents it was magical for mom.
“Someone told me you are never going to experience this level of love until you actually have a baby, and they are absolutely right,” said Demos.
It was great for dad, too.
“I just couldn’t believe it. After nine months, to actually see her and hold her and that she was o.k., that mattered,” said Rubino.
