Celine's middle name, WeiZhen, means "truth alone" in Chinese. Per the same report, it's a sweet homage to Celine's great-grandmother, Jeanne.
Celine is Vlad and Marian's only child. Vlad told his fellow CBS Mornings co-hosts how excited he was to be a girl dad, adding, "We're blessed. It's so challenging for people to have children and we don't take it lightly. It's not easy, but we're very blessed."

Per an official statement from Neeraj Khemlani, co-president of CBS’s news and stations, "There will be more Vlad on “Talk of the Table” in addition to his signature ‘What to Watch’ segments. ... This recognizes and expands his contributions to the show, which is up 3 percent year-to-year with women 25-54 and is the only morning news program posting growth in any demographic."
Vlad has the full faith and confidence of many CBS execs, including Anthony Galloway, CBS News’s senior vice president of streaming, who said in an official statement, "From his early days anchoring what was once CBSN, to today where he co-hosts and contributes to several hours of programming across broadcast and streaming, Vlad wakes up every day with a sense of curiosity and unfettered energy that brings important stories to life across platforms."
