The Longest Shortest Time

EPISODE #18: I’ve Got News 4

Ellen a few days before delivery

Ellen a few days before delivery

Thirteen days before Ellen’s due date, I check in with her and the baby’s father, Tim. The imminently expectant parents reflect on the alternate reality they’d be living if it weren’t for “Bean,” and how to play the game of Being Awesome at Being Adult.

UPDATE: Between the time that I talked to Ellen and Tim and the airing of this episode, baby Bean was born! Fiona Jane came into the world on May 19th, weighing in at 8 lbs, 14 oz. Please join me in welcoming Ellen and Tim to The Club. I can’t wait to hear how things are going, and to continue to bring the story of their journey to LST. Stay tuned.
