Have you ever met someone with the exact same name as you?

The CBC's Alana Baker got that chance — and quite an honour — when parents Corrina and Leif Baker named their newborn daughter Alana after seeing the reporter on CBC Calgary's TV newscast.

"We liked the name Alana and then we were watching the news one night," explained Corrina.

"And we were like, 'Whoa, that must be a sign.'"

Baby Alana Baker joins sister Julia, 4, and brother Logan, 22 months.

She was born July 15, making her four-weeks-old. Along with Baker's parents, we here at CBC News figured that she was plenty old enough to follow in her elder's footsteps.

So Alana Baker, Sr. stepped aside to let her namesake try her hand at journalism.

"In this industry, there's always someone younger and cuter waiting to take your place," she laughed.

Our newsroom had a great time putting together a fun story about the new addition.
