I just lost whatever respect I had for Ms. Kolber after reading that.

In no does she let the primary responsibility in her life, her child that she CHOSE to bring into the world, get in the way of her duties at ESPN. Career>family.

I am also still waiting for the reference to the father-errrrrrr- sperm donor. She dumps her child on her family and rambles off to the Suoper Bowl and we're supposed to fell good about this blatent neglect and somehow laud her for the "new paradigm of parenting?"

What she is doing is no different than the millions of unwed mothers in lower socio economic circles except she has no excuse as she is educated and has money. The child will face a harder road growing and developing despite those inherent advantages without a traditional family and her value system will be warped- as is her mother's- from the outset.

If Ms. kolber really wanted to do what is right for the child she would resign from ESPN, take a local job where she can be with her child more than 50% of the time, and make every attempt to raise the child in a traditional home with a loving mother and father.

Career>kid. Sad...

Nice article! It's great to hear about a professional who is able to juggle work with home life like this.

Ms. Kolber is living a life that not only fulfills her but provides her child with a loving environment. She's being true to herself. The only thing that matters is that she and her baby are happy. There are plenty of traditional families living sad and desperately dysfunctional lives.

So, who be the daddy??

Not saying he is but Brady Ackerman was running with her a bit a few years back.

Nice try to make something out of nothing. If you want to read a good article about parenting, having a professional career and making an impact read the one in the Orlando Sentinel about GM Otis Smith and his wife on raising a family and being with you children.
All you have here is a femal yuppy trying to play the role of a mother, being over paid and having the grandparents take on the parenting responsibilities. Get real

Ms. Kolber doesn't need a husband or the father to help her raise this child. She can support this child financially, and she's dedicated to being a mother and to her career. One of the idiots who posted earlier said Ms. Kolber "dumped" her child on family while she covered the Super Bowl. I am very certain that her parents are cherishing their time with their granddaughter. My 2-year-old niece's parents are married, and both have jobs that require some childcare. Two sets of grandparents switch off, and a third set of grandparents will babysit when asked. This little girl's is full of love and attention from her grandparents and her parents. Grandparents are a blessing in a child's life. My niece is well adjusted, confident, happy-go-lucky, and outgoing. As a single mother, Ms. Kolber is doing everything right! And you know that high divorce rate we Americans are known for -- the one that tears apart families and ruins children's lives? Yeah, that one. Ms. Kolber's child won't have to go through that pain, and this child will be fine without a father. I have done very well without a father, as have many of my friends whose fathers also left them. We have built successful, fulfilling lives, thanks to our mothers, not our fathers. In fact, it made me stronger and more capable of choosing a better husband.

We support you Ms. Kolber!

Omg! Seeing these shockingly spiteful, disparaging, misogynistic and frankly insecure remarks from these men would drive any normal woman to a turkey baster. Yikes.

It's ok for men reporters and athletes to go on the road and barely see their children, but when a women tries to do both then people talk about her. Bullshit.

Who cares? She looks good, does well at her job, and she didn't kiss that thieving bastard Namath.
