Lou Canellis Wife/ Family

FOX News sports anchor Lou Canellis and his wife Monica have a goal to help the childless couple who doesn’t have kids. The couple knew that Monica couldn’t bear her biological child on her own and as a woman, she became emotional to accept her fate. When they went towards the hospital in the hope to adopt a child, the fertility doctors encouraged them for surrogacy, not for adoption.

The childless couple had a sense of relief after they knew about surrogacy and did gestational surrogacy. The surrogate mother became ready to carry the baby using a donor egg and Lou’s sperm. With the help of a gestational surrogate, Lou and his wife Monica welcomed their baby girl named Georgia Kailani Canellis in May 2018. They prefer to call their little bundle of joy with a name of ‘Gia.’

The sportscaster is a proud father and often gushes about his little daughter on social media. During the late January 2019 when Pizza Hut used the adorable little Gia in its national advertisement, Lou became gratified towards his first born child who is the ‘official pizza of the Super Bowl.’

He and Monica are married since June 2005. During his decade anniversary on 11 June 2015, the Oak Lawn native shared their wedding throwback picture and labeled his wife as his ‘partner in crime, best friend, and soulmate.’ Lou gushed that the couple went through life struggles and his wife had shown him what it means to be a partner.

His wife Monica worked in the real estate business and served as an executive assistant in the music industry. She was referred to as a social planner, and the Chicago native returned to her hometown from Atlanta setting the groundwork for real estate. The real estate developer has involved herself in social and charitable organizations like ‘Stimulus Social Club.’ With Lou and her daughter Gia, the family-of-three are residing in the Museum Park area of the South Loop.

The sale price also included three garage spaces.

Lou Canellis Cubs In Mesa

Article by Lou Canellis; 

The Cubs haven’t played a game yet this year, but they’ve already hit a home run with some kids from the Chicago area.

Nine children with serious health issues were headed to Arizona Tuesday to join the Cubs at spring training camp.
The kids and their families took off from O’Hare, kicking off a “Kids, Cubs and Cactus” road trip.

“It’s really a dream come true for her and a dream come true for us,” said Dan Greyson

Dan and Olivia Greyson are among the patients and parents from Advocate Children’s Hospital who say baseball truly is the best medicine.

“I’m really excited and I really can’t wait to meet all the Cubs players,” Olivia said.

FOX 32: Who do you really want to see?

“Kris Bryant,” Olivia said.

“It’s incredible. The fact she gets to do something like this is unbelievable. And to be able to see them the year after they win the World Series?” Dan said.

Saida Trznadel, 11, couldn’t believe it when she learned she’d be meeting the Cubs.

“First I thought my parents were teasing me because they tease me so much. I was like, ha, good one. What? And then I started freaking out. I’m like what?” Saida said.

The Cubs and American Airlines are picking up the tab for the trip: 35 people, including the kids, their parents, some nurses and even a doctor.
