Kate Bolduan is co-anchor on 'New Day' alongside Chris Cuomo and news anchor Michaela Pereira weekdays at 6am ET.

When she's not on-air, Kate can usually be found at the gym, spending with family and goofing around behind-the-scenes at 'New Day.'

Oh and also getting ready for baby! She and her husband are also expecting their first child in October.

Here, Kate shares 10 things you didn't know about her:

1. I'm left-handed but I play all sports right-handed

2. I have a unique talent of being able to fall asleep anywhere, any time

3. I would eat cereal for every meal if allowed

4. My parents were told they were having a boy, so my room growing up was all blue with trains and teddy bears for years

5. I grew up in an apple orchard

6. I can barefoot waterski

7. I studied in Madrid, Spain where I learned to speak Spanish

8. I've never seen any of the Star Wars movies (though I hear they're pretty good)

9. Ketchup goes with everything

10. My family nickname is Kway Wayne because I was obsessed as a child with Dwayne Wayne from A Different World. I even owned several pairs of flip-up sunglasses

Biden says presidential decision will come next summer

By Kate Bolduan and Producer Lindsay Perna

Producer Elizabeth Stuart contributed to this report

Vice President Joe Biden joked this week that being able to drive his Corvette – is one good reason not to run. But, when asked to give another good reason not to run, Biden responded simply.

“I can’t.”

“There may be reasons I don't run, but there's no obvious reason for me why I think I should not run,” he said in the interview with Kate Bolduan on CNN’s “New Day.”

Biden went on to say he would make a decision “realistically, a year this summer.”

Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX) Discusses the Security “Ring of Steel” Around Sochi

All eyes are on Russia in the few weeks left before the Olympics begin in Sochi. Athletes and tourists visiting for the games are faced with increasing concerns over terrorist threats in and around what President Putin calls the “Ring of Steel.” Officials there (and here in the U.S.) are already on high alert after recent suicide bombings in Russia killed nearly forty people last month.

Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX), Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, was on New Day today and said Russia's security is the "most impressive" in Olympic history. We asked him what he’d tell his constituents if they want to travel to the games. Rep. McCaul didn’t recommend what to do one way or another, but did say we need to realize “nothing is ever safe….I think if we let the terrorists detract us from attending and enjoying these games we’re letting the terrorists win.”  He also did acknowledge “ this Olympics is different” because of the proximity of the terrorists to the site of the world event.

McCaul says he isn't aware of direct threats against U.S. athletes competing in the games – but, adds "there are threats."

His biggest cause for concern:  whether Putin will take up President Obama's offer of "full assistance" in added security and technology that can detect and counter IEDs. McCaul says Russia needs to improve its intelligence sharing, saying they haven't been “quite as candid with us." 

All of this….and we’re just 16 days to the start of the games.
