ABC News anchor Elizabeth Vargas gave birth to her second child Wednesday, and she expects to be back at work later this year.
The 43-year-old Vargas and her husband, singer-songwriter Marc Cohn, welcomed Samuel Wyatt Cohn into the world at a New York hospital on Wednesday. Samuel weighed 7 pounds, 9 ounces at birth, and both he and his mom are "incredible," Cohn tells ABC.
The couple also has a 3-year-old son named Zachary.
Vargas is expected to return to her co-anchor duties on newsmagazine "20/20" sometime in the fall. She was an anchor of "World News Tonight" for a few months earlier this year but decided in May to step down; Charles Gibson now is the nightly newscast's anchor.
Late last year, Vargas and Bob Woodruff were named co-anchors of "World News." In January, however, Woodruff was badly wounded while traveling with a U.S. Army unit in Iraq. He continues to recover and has spent some time in the ABC newsroom in recent weeks.
Vargas' departure from "World News" in May raised some eyebrows, but she has insisted she made the decision on her own. In addition to co-anchoring "20/20," she's also expected to host prime-time news specials upon her return.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
