Kristi Capel is an American television newscaster who currently appears in Fox 8 morning. I think her name might be familiar to few people as she made the headline in 2015 because of her racist comment towards Lady Gaga’s performance at the 87th Academy Awards.
Capel used the word “jigaboo” live on air, which is an offensive slang for a black person to describe Lady Gaga’s performance. She remarked saying, “You can really hear her voice with all the jigaboo music that she does, whatever you want to call it.” And that comment didn’t set well with people and she was criticized for it but, later she apologized for her mistake. However, that is all in the past now. Let's find out about Kristi's husband and newborn baby.
Kristi gave birth to an adorable little boy back in August of 2016. The official page of Fox 8 gave us an update about her newborn baby and released an official statement about it.
The happy couple welcomed their newborn baby into this world on August 6th, 2016 at 5:15 am on a Saturday. The baby boy weighed 8 pounds 13 ounces according to the website.

They decided to name the baby boy Duke Edward and Kristi also explains how they decided to name the baby Duke.
“I had that name at the back of my mind for a long time but I was just trying to sell Hal on it and he likes it.”
She also added,
“It’s a name I’ve kind of liked for a while, so I don’t know.”
Kristi also has an older daughter Kyndal who was born on September 1st, 2013 and Kristi said her husband Hal named their daughter. Kyndal just adores her little brother and Kristi says that she can’t get enough of him and has been very good.
There is no much information about Kristi’s husband but, from what we could gather about her husband, Kristi is married to a man named Hal. They are college sweetheart and have been married since 2007. Kristi enrolled at Evangel University in Springfield where she played volleyball and that is where she met her husband Hal. Hal also attended the same university. Hal asked Kristi out on a date on Valentine’s Day and then rest as we all know is history.
