The lack of a new Daily Show last night was not a sign that the show had gone into yet another of it's weeklong vacations. Turns out Jon Stewart and his wife Tracey had their baby daughter Saturday night.
The named her Maggie Rose, a tribute to the unofficial folk anthem of Australia, "Waltzing Maggie."
On a related note, I heard a report a couple of months ago about which double stroller the Stewarts bought, but I haven't posted it. The sales guy at the baby store was shooting his mouth off about it, and frankly, it felt really invasive. It's not like he's buying Lotrimin Ultra or anything, but still, a man shouldn't have to worry that his purchases are discussed so freely after he leaves. And anyway, I'm sure the paparazzi are staked out outside Villa Stewart, so the minute the clan tries to sneak out for waffles, they'll be ours forever.
Uh, I think his wife helped: A Baby Girl For Jon Stewart [people]
