The Associated Press headline reads, “War Reporter now fighting baby drama.” There was certainly the skulky and narcissistic way out of her “unplanned” pregnancy, which would have spared public humiliation and career concerns, but CBS News reporter Lara Logan chose the heroic option:

Lara Logan, the chief foreign affairs correspondent for CBS News, tells The Washington Post she is pregnant, and the father is a married federal contractor whom she met while stationed in Iraq.

Logan’s relationship with Joseph Burkett – who’s in the midst of a divorce from wife Kimberly, with whom he has a 3-year-old daughter – has made media headlines, including the front page of the New York Post.
Logan is going through a divorce from estranged husband Jason Siemon, a Chicago-based energy lobbyist whom she married in 1998.
“Nobody likes to read about themselves like that, especially the way it’s been sensationalized,” [said] Logan, 37…. “I hated it. But I’m just going to rise above it and keep going.”…

Logan, whose pregnancy was unplanned, told the newspaper her due date is in January, and she’s “looking forward to being a mom.”…
The reporter – known for her intrepid war coverage – was promoted to CBS’ chief foreign affairs correspondent last month….
Logan, a contributor to 60 Minutes, has won numerous reporting accolades, including an Emmy and Overseas Press Club Award.
