Born: A daughter, to political PR guru Risa Heller, in New York on Tuesday. . . just days after the first-time mom wrapped up a whirlwind gig handling PR for Anthony Weiner during his Twitter-sex scandal. The congressman brought on Heller (a veteran flack for Chuck Schumer and David Paterson) to advise him the day he confessed to lewd tweets — at that point, only eight days before her due date — and she stayed on until his resignation, thanks to baby Vivian Jason Toohey’s late arrival. Now that’s crisis communications! Dad is Ryan Toohey, managing director at FTI Consulting.
