Fans watch Ginger Zee report the weather on Good Morning America, but when she’s not on TV, she’s raising her little family with her husband, Ben Aaron (real name: Benjamin “Ben” Aron Colonomos). The ABC News personality and former host of Pickler and Ben share their two sons, Adrian and Miles.
Ginger and Ben experienced first-time parenthood when they welcomed their eldest son, Adrian, in 2015. The couple, who married in 2014, welcomed their youngest son, Miles, three years later in 2018.
The Dancing with the Stars grad’s little men are still toddlers, but Ginger can’t believe how quickly Adrian and Miles are growing up. “Lost this morning – tears as the boys go to school,” she wrote on Instagram in August 2020. “Parents worry at level 10,000. I know they will be fine – and school is good – I just love them so much.
Ginger always shares sweet glimpses into her life as a mom. Whether she’s tucking her kids into bed at night or playing silly games around the house, there’s no doubt that the author of Chasing Helicity Through the Storm is always entertained by her toes.
In late October, Ginger shared the cutest photo of the sibling duo posing in trendy outfits. “Seriously falling around here…” He joked in the caption. Later in November, he uploaded the cutest snap while holding Miles’ hand. “There’s still something baby about her little hand,” said Ginger. “I appreciate every last second I have while she’s still soft.”
However, like most parents, Ginger’s days are full of ups and downs. While motherhood isn’t always rainbows and butterflies, being a mom is “the best thing [she] could have done in [her] life,” she told MLive in 2017.
The former Hearts of Heroes presenter also said she hopes to be a good role model for her children. “I think there are a lot of new moms who say, ‘I don’t know if I can do this,'” she told the Chicago Tribune in 2015. “Women get asked that all the time. ‘How are you going to do all this?’
“It’s just subject,” Ginger continued. “We just do it. There’s no question of, ‘How are you going to do it?’

Adrian Benjamin Colonomos
Ginger and Ben welcomed their first child, Adrian Benjamin, on December 19, 2015. “Meet my little love – Adrian Benjamin!” The proud mom took to Twitter to introduce her little bundle of joy.
Adrian already seems to have quite the personality, as he often appears on his mother’s Instagram. In early November, Ginger uploaded a hilarious clip of her son discussing her work from home.
“Adrian was waiting for us to start a new experiment and @samwnek recorded it in the studio,” she wrote in the post. “He loves my son.”
On social media, Ginger announced that her son has been practicing martial arts for over a year. According to her posts, she also likes playing with her younger brother, cooking with her mother, and fishing.
Miles Macklin Colonists
The famous couple welcomed their second son, Miles Macklin, on February 9, 2018. “8 pounds, seven ounces, 21.5 inches,” Ginger simply captioned a black and white photo of Miles’ tiny hand after he was born.
Like Adrian, Ginger likes to post pictures of her youngest baby. In August, Wiedermann uploaded a snap of Miles with garden tools laid out.
“Dreams do come true… this girl’s favorite things in life include backpack lawnmowers and leaf blowers,” she joked. Miles also participates in karate with his brother and enjoys modeling fashion outfits on his mother’s Instagram.
Ginger and Ben’s love for their children is no secret. The famous couple shared a picture of Miles with the caption, “Love knows no boundaries.”
Adrian was born in 2015, followed by Miles three years later. According to Ginger, they plan on having more kids. So far, they have had two successful pregnancy experiences and couldn’t be happier.
