With a privilege to report a royal wedding, Shirleen Allicot brings an insight into the glorious opportunities prevailing in the world of journalism. The co-anchor of Eyewitness News This Morning and Eyewitness News at Noon on WABC, Shirleen has enjoyed a blossoming journalistic career grabbing every opportunity that comes her way by both hands.
With her professional life heading in the right direction, the same can be said about her personal life as well. Happily married to the man of her dreams, Shirleen plays the role of a wife just as beautifully as she does that of a reporter.
Her career progress goes alongside her progress in personal life with the journalist now becoming a mother as well. Despite the increased family roles, she remains to balance her commitment between her professional and personal life.
Wedding Vows With Husband Going Strong
Not one to publicize her personal life, Shirleen has managed to flaunt her married life just enough. The reporter seems to be successfully leading her married life as per the looks of her social media.
Enjoying holidays with her husband Jesse together, the married couple celebrated their wedding anniversary on 25th June 2018. Safe to assume that her wedding vows remain intact as the couple seems to be sharing an endless love for each other.
Born at the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, with her parents residing in the United States when she was at the age of 3 months, the American reporter has had a faithful relationship with her husband.

The reporter for the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Shirleen has found his prince in life. With a wedding not as grand as that of the royal family, she hopes her love story can at least be on the same page or even exceed that of the royal couples.

Almost a year on, she and her life partner's relationship continues to flourish. The secret might be in their tendency to taunt each other online.
For instance, when Jesse left for Vegas in December 208, she Instagrammed a very risque image with the star of Aquaman Jason Mamoa as a means to get back at him for leaving her alone.
Parents Baby Girl Of Age Almost Two
Shirleen, in an already appealing life, added one more spark of joy on 15 March 2017 when she and husband Jesse welcomed a baby daughter Shayla together. The reporter shared her happiness in her Facebook account on 18 March 2017, confirming the good news.
“Talk about a girl who respects deadlines! Our little one waited out the storm Tuesday and arrived right on time, March 15th! Shayla Joëlle already made her television debut on Eyewitness News at Noon yesterday (go, girl!). She's her daddy's twin and loves to eat and sleep. 3 days into parenthood, Baby Shay continues to amaze us and we can't stop staring at the precious little person we created. If you have any advice for this new mommy, who hasn't slept in 3 days, please share!”
Allicot, a perfect wife in her self, now has one added responsibility in the form of a mother. However, not one to back down from challenges, she seems to be engaged in her new found role. Going by her social media account, she could not be any happier.

A reporter set in her ambitions to reach the top of her game, Shirleen Allicot remains to be continuously supported by her husband, and now has one extra motivation to pursue her dreams, in the form of her baby girl Shayla.
Expecting Baby Number Two With Husband
Her motivation to match her ambition undoubtedly saw a likely boost when she learned about becoming pregnant for the second time back in October of 2018.
However, Shirleen didn't reveal about her pregnancy until three months later in January of 2019. She announced the news of her expecting the second daughter with her husband, Jesse on live TV while hosting The Feed.

A relatively exuberant Shirleen even recieved pink and blue flowers as well as congratulatory kisses from her male co-hosts upon the grand revelation. Interestingly enough, she's due to hit the labor in the same month as GMA Day co-host Sara Haines, who's expecting her third baby with her husband.
The ABC Eyewitness News anchor's unborn child will join her sister Shayla, who got into all the school she and her partner Jesse had applied.
