NEW YORK -- Jane Pauley, a star of the NBC 'Today' television show, gave birth Friday to twins, a boy and a girl.

'Both mother and infants are fine, in perfect health,' an NBC spokesman said.


'The children have not been named yet.'

The boy was born at 7:06 a.m. and weighed 5 pounds 15 ounces. The girl was delivered at 7:11 a.m. and weighed 5 pounds 4 ounces.

The twins are the first children for Miss Pauley, 33, a native of Indianapolis, and cartoonist Garry Trudeau. They were married in 1980.

Miss Pauley joined the 'Today' program in October 1976 when Barbara Walters quit to go to work for the ABC televison network.

Trudeau won a Pulitzer Prize in 1975 for his cartoon strip 'Doonesbury,' which was turned into a musicial comedy currently on Broadway.

Trudeau telephoned the NBC control room in New York shortly after 8 a.m. EST to report the births and anchorwoman Connie Chung, substituting for Miss Pauley on the 'Today' show, reported the births at 8:30 a.m.
