Statue of Liberty Reopens Today, July 4th, !





The Statue of Liberty is ready to face the masses, reports CNN's Pamela Brown.

Back in October 2012, Hurricane Sandy forced Lady Liberty's closing just a day after her 126 year anniversary.  While the status itself was unharmed, storm surge socked Liberty Island. Bricks were ripped up, docks destroyed and garbage everywhere.

CNN got rare access for the reopening, all the way to her crown, and up 377 steps. Check it out!

World Awaits Future King or Queen

The Duchess of Cambridge could give birth at any moment.

In anticipation, well-wishers and the media are already gathered outside the hospital where Catherine will deliver the royal baby.

CNN’s Max Foster
has details live from London.

“With the royal baby possibly due any day and the spotlight of the world's media fixed firmly on this hospital, final preparations are taking place both inside and out,” Foster reports.

From where William needs to park when the Duchess goes into labor to the official announcement once the baby is born, everything is set. The sex of the baby will be announced at Buckingham Palace.

“A piece of paper of notification will be placed on an easel in the middle of the forecourt," Foster reports, "and it will be the official notification to the world that a new prince or princess has indeed been born.”

The world may be waiting and watching for the royal birth, but it was not too long ago that we similarly looked forward to the fairytale royal wedding of the Duke and now-Duchess.

"New Day" co-anchor Kate Bolduan traveled to London recently to document the  journey taken by the royal couple, from the alter...to parenthood. Take a look:

Adam Sandler Crashes "New Day" Barbecue on 4th of July!

Actor and comedian Adam Sandler was walking through Columbus Circle with his kids after a long flight from Africa, when he stumbled into Anchor Chris Cuomo and our "New Day" Fourth of July barbecue.

Cuomo gave him an opportunity to plug his latest film, but he wanted to focus on today's holiday.

"'Grown Ups 2,' that's happening, we don't have to talk about it," says Sandler.  "We can talk about America today. America. Good place. Happy Birthday."

Happy Birthday America and Happy Fourth of July from Adam Sandler and the "New Day" family!
