Cindy Morales will give birth to her own grandchild later Thursday.

Morales offered to serve as a surrogate for her daughter, Emily Jordan, after cervical cancer forced doctors to remove Emily's uterus to save her life. It was a gift neither Emily nor her husband, Mike, could have anticipated.

Robin Roberts Mother Passes Away at 88

Mother of 'Good Morning America' anchor Robin Roberts dies at 88. TODAY

Please join us in praying for Robin Roberts and her family.

 

These are tough days for Robin Roberts. The "Good Morning America" anchor's mother, Lucimarian Tolliver Roberts, died Thursday at the age of 88, her co-anchor George Stephanopoulos announced on the show Friday.

The sad news follows Roberts' announcement that she will be taking a medical leave to undergo a bone-marrow transplant after being diagnosed earlier this year with myelodysplastic syndrome, a disease of the blood and bone marrow.

The 51-year-old had originally planned to start her leave after today's show but announced Thursday that she'd begin it a day early so she could fly home to Mississippi to be with her ailing mother.

On the show Friday, Stephanopoulos said that Robin "wanted to get home a little early to say goodbye to her mom. She made it home just in time."
