The Bert Show’s Kristin Klingshirn welcomed a baby boy James into the world Monday.

She had a scheduled C-section.

Klingshirn, 41, kept her Instagram announcement short but sweet: “He’s here... and so worth the wait.”

The Bert Show is a 20-year-old syndicated show based out of Atlanta on more than 25 stations and heard locally on Q99.7.

Klingshirn married her long-time boyfriend Bart Mattingly in 2017 and immediately tried having a child but didn’t have any luck.

They went to an infertility specialist, who told them that they only had a 3% chance of conceiving on their own so they opted for in vitro fertilization.

After a first-round failed, the second time was a charm, and last October, she told radio listeners she was pregnant.

Her baby James’ room was designed with a Winnie the Pooh theme, and Mattingly built custom-made bookshelves. She also held a virtual baby shower for the Helping Mamas charity in Norcross.

While Klingshirn is on maternity leave, Cassiday Proctor, a former Star 94 morning host who now works in Kansas City, will handle entertainment buzz duties on the Bert Show in the interim.
