This little guy got his name, well, … you read it, but we’d like to hear where you got your nickname…

WLS-Ch. 7 morning news anchor Judy Hsu gave birth this morning to a baby boy as she and her husband rushed to the hospital on the inbound Eisenhower Expressway, the station reported.

“We were heading down the Eisenhower,” Hsu said during the station’s 11 a.m. news broadcast. “At a pretty fast speed.”

“I said, ‘Do you need to pull over?’ Judy said, ‘I don’t know!’ ” Tracy, her husband, said.

“I didn’t know. I think I was in denial the whole time. I did not want to pull over on the side of the expressway. But the time came, and I knew the baby couldn’t wait. I said, ‘OK, I think we better pull over and call 911,’ ” Hsu said.

The couple’s baby came into the world at about 3 a.m. near the Cicero Avenue exit. They named him Alexander James but — fittingly — his nickname will be “Ike.”
