Weeks after opening up about his son's health battles, Bret Baier and his family surprised fans on Fox's "Special Report" with heartfelt season greetings.
Bret Baier is best known as the host of Fox News Channel's "Special Report with Bret Baier." The reporter used his show to wish fans a wonderful Christmas alongside his family and shared the clip on Instagram.
On December 25, the 50-year-old uploaded the footage of his family's appearance on "Special Report" which captured Bret with his wife Amy and their sons — Paul and Daniel dressed in formal attires in a snowy background.
The Baier's heartfelt message came a day after Amy shared a picture of the family on Instagram. The image captured the mother-of-two in a red dress while her husband and sons wore similar navy-blue suits.
Baier stated that his son's journey inspired his 2014 book "Special Heart: A Journey of Faith, Hope, Courage, and Love."
The thoughtful and amazing post received several comments from fans who wished the family a merry holiday as the reporter's wife captioned the photo with the words:
"Wishing you a bright and Merry Christmas!"
These precious family posts came weeks after Paul, the firstborn son of the Baier family had his fourth open-heart surgery. Earlier in December, the father-of-two shared the news on Instagram alongside a picture of himself, his wife, and their son.
Paul had his fourth open-heart surgery at the Children's National Hospital in Washington. The 13-year-old was born with five congenital heart defects and received his first open-heart surgery a few days after his birth.
The father-of-two revealed to sources that he was initially excited about his son's birth until the doctor explained Paul's medical condition. He has endured ten angioplasty surgeries, and his father hoped this would be his last.
Baier stated that his son's journey inspired his 2014 book "Special Heart: A Journey of Faith, Hope, Courage, and Love" and also praised his son for being a warrior throughout his medical battles.
Earlier this year, the Fox News anchor began broadcasting from home amid the pandemic and confessed to sources that working from home was a challenge. The reporter wasn't only worried about his sons but also their dog, Coco.
Baier stated that he was happy to spend more time with his family despite the challenges of working from home. However, he and his wife were cautious about protecting their sons, especially Paul, who is vulnerable due to his medical condition.
