    Keilar was born in Canberra, ACT, Australia. Her father Glenn is Australian, and her mother Miriam was American. The Keilars were stationed in Australia at the time of Brianna's birth. In 1982, Keilar and her family moved to the United States and settled in Orange County, California. Keilar graduated from Mission Viejo High School in 1998, where she was voted homecoming queen in her senior year. Keilar graduated in 2001 from the University of California, Berkeley, where she was admitted into the Phi Beta Kappa Society. She received her dual bachelor's degrees in Mass Communications and Psychology in 2001.
    In July 2016, Keilar announced that she was engaged to Fernando Lujan, a director on the National Security Council at the White House. During CNN's New Year's Eve special on December 31, 2016, Brooke Baldwin announced that Keilar and Lujan had married the previous evening in Las Vegas. She gave birth to a baby boy named Antonio on June 8, 2018.

    Lujan is a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army Special Forces.

    Might I suggest your avatar. Have you shown her your picture of your giant (rooster)? You might impress her with that.

    Bodhi (internally groaning): Yeah? What kind of artist?
    Lily: A balloon animal artist!

    I wonder if her weight gain was related to her pregnancy. At any rate - she's still easy to listen to and does a good job. I thought her bio was interesting, which is why I shared it here.

    The weight gain has progressed long after her child was born. She's fortunate in being one of those people whose weight doesn't show in the face that much. Probably the stress of her husband's being deployed has more to do with it than pregnancy...

    Wow - you've really kept up with her weight situation - I'm impressed!

    She still looks like she'd be a fun date. Not while married of course.....especially to an Special Forces Lt. Colonel!
