Journalist Ling, 39, is the host of the OWN program Our America with Lisa Ling. She and her husband of nearly six years, biotech firm president Paul Song, 47, celebrated the birth of their first child, daughter Jett, in March. Ling has chronicled her journey to motherhood with PEOPLE, and now shares her thoughts on the eve of Mother's Day.
Although this is my very first Mother's Day as a mother, it's only been eight weeks, so I still have a lot to learn. Fortunately though, I have an extraordinary person to whom I can look up – my mother Mary.
There are times when the words thank you are simply unable to express the degree of appreciation one has for someone else; that is how grateful I am to my mother.

Hey, I'm Kate Hogan, the style news editor at PEOPLE.com. I had the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes on Anderson Live Wednesday, acting as blogger of the day and live-Tweeting from New York City's CBS Studios.
It was a busy morning for us at PEOPLE (we debuted Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's wedding photos!) but it was a busy morning for Anderson Cooper, too: His co-host for the day, Lisa Ling, revealed that she's expecting a baby girl!
We got to break the news but that wasn't all ...

For Lisa Ling, hearing that 60 Minutes journalist Lara Logan had been brutally sexually assaulted in Egypt hit home.
"When I first heard the story I was devastated," Ling, whose TV-reporter sister Laura Ling was held captive for five months in a North Korean prison in 2009, said on Wednesday's The Wendy Williams Show. "I have never met her, but she does incredible work and I wish her and her family well and hope that she comes back strong because her work is really unique. She's a very courageous woman and I wish her well."
Referencing her sister's experience, Ling said journalists generally understand the dangers they face – but sometimes, the unexpected happens.
