Reporter Laura Ling names daughter after Bill Clinton

Nearly a year after Bill Clinton helped free reporters Laura Ling and Euna Lee from North Korea, Ling has given birth to a daughter whom she named after the former President.

According to Yahoo! News, Ling named her daughter Li Jefferson Clayton. Li pays homage to the reporters sister "The View" co-host Lisa Ling and the middle name Jefferson is a tribute to Clinton as it is also his middle name. So what caused Ling to want to name her daughter after the man who helped her regain her freedom?

Ling was quoted as saying, "He has checked in on me several times to see how I'm doing and has been so concerned and caring. He's such a wonderful human being."
