PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Philadelphia meteorologist who went online to fight back against “haters” critical of her pregnant appearance has given birth to twin girls.

KYW-TV says Katie Fehlinger (FEH’-lin-jer) went into labor after her morning shift Tuesday and delivered the girls Wednesday afternoon.

Parker Janice was born at 12:58 p.m. She weighed 4 pounds, 15 ounces. Kaeden Faye arrived a minute later, weighing 3 pounds, 12 ounces

Fehlinger shot back at critics last week in a Facebook post, attracting national attention and support from thousands of people.

She wrote that the industry makes her an easy target for criticism. But she said it crosses the line to post “nastygrams” about pregnant women.

Fehlinger, a Lehigh Valley native, has been with the station since 2011.
