This angelic lil Asian baby is undoubtedly being spoiled rotten by “Auntie Oprah”. Can you guess who her telejournalist mommy is? It should be a cinch.

Hit the flip for the answer!

That precious baby is Jett Ling Song, the daughter of OWN’s “Our America” host Lisa Ling.

Via US Weekly reports:

Lisa Ling is a mom at last! After suffering miscarriages in 2010 and 2011, the TV journalist and her oncologist husband, Paul Song, proudly welcomed a little girl, Jett, on March 8. Married since 2007, the couple share exclusive pictures of their daughter in the May 20 issue of Us Weekly.

“We weren’t trying,” Ling, 39, says of getting pregnant in the summer of 2012. “My travel schedule is erratic, and I only saw Paul once a month, so it was a shock. We had considered adoption, but we got very lucky. We believe this is the child we were supposed to have.”

Given their history, the spouses spent the first few months fearing the worst. Then the baby moved for the first time. “It was incredible — I had never gotten far enough along to feel like anything was in there,” Ling explains. “Paul and I stayed in bed all weekend with our hands on my stomach. It was such a miracle.”

The host of OWN’s Our America With Lisa Ling delivered her daughter via C-section because the cord was wrapped around her daughter’s neck. “When they held her up, it was probably the most triumphant moment in our marriage,” Ling says. “It was like, ‘We made that screaming beast and we’re responsible for her for the rest of our lives!’ It was an incredible bonding moment.”

“When I left the hospital with Jett, the whole world looked different to me,” she adds. “I’ve always been into my work and wanted to do work that I could be proud of. Now, I want to do work that she can be proud of.”

Ling and Song, 47, chose the name Jett for a variety of reasons, the California native explains. “I’m a huge fan of martial arts and Jet Li, so I loved the name Jett,” the new mom tells Us. “It also reminds me of Joan Jett and bada$$ women rockers.”

We love it! Jett is definitely a badazz name and with her high achieving parents there are no doubts that baby is gonna grow up to do big things.

Can you imagine all the shwag and hookups Oprah is sending that kid’s way?
