Video of a TV correspondent as her child interrupted a live television broadcast has delighted sections of the internet, with many drawing parallels with a similar moment from 2017.

In the new MSNBC clip, NBC News correspondent Courtney Kube can be seen discussing the ramifications of changing US policy in Syria, only to be interrupted by her child.

“Excuse me … my kids are here,” Ms Kube says with a smile after her son walks up and reaches out to her. “Live television.”

The MSNBC crew quickly cut away to a graphic of the Middle East, and Ms Kube finished discussing the situation in northern Syria — where Kurdish allies of the United States are being bombed by Turkey after Donald Trump removed American troops.

The moment caught the attention of some on social media, with many applauding Ms Kube’s deft handling of the interruption.

The incident prompted comparisons with a 2017 BBC interview with professor Robert E Kelly, in which he was interrupted by his two children, who are then ushered out by his wife, as he was discussing South Korean politics.
