Transcript for Instant Index: Steve Martin to Be a Dad; Robin Roberts on Cover of People
And something to celebrate at the top of our "instant index" tonight. Listen closely to a wonderful song, which has new meaning. ♪ Daddy played the banjo ♪ ♪ beneath the tree ♪ the song is called "daddy played the banjo" and it's a kind of lullaby written and played by steve martin. Well, today he and his wife anne confirmed they are parents for the first time. And tonight, we send baby love. And as his song says, happiness around a childhood moon. And all of america got creative today after senator marco rubio created a kind of watergate, they're calling it, during his big rebuttal to last night's state of the union. In the short time that I've been here in washington, nothing has frustrated me more than false choices like the one the president laid out tonight. Diving for the water there. One viewer tweeted, "we all just watched the next saturday night live opening skit." And also today, poland spring posted this picture of a water bottle, quote, reflecting on its cameo. Rubio had a sense of humor, telling george stephanopoulos today, "god has a funny way of reminding us we're human." And as you know, robin roberts will be back at the "gma" anchor desk one week from today. And tonight, there she is, ra gracing the cover of "people" magazine, talking about the dark times and the light ones during her recovery from her bone marrow transplant. She says doctors had warned that at some point, she might feel like she was dying, and, indeed, there was a moment, quote, "i was in a coma-like state. I truly felt I was slipping away, then, I kept hearing my name." She says she thanks all of you for your prayers and support and she is returning to her true self, which, I can say, is radiant. And back next week. And be sure to let you know what you love for our "instant index" every day.
