Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan asks WGN reporter to have a baby

CHICAGO — Reporter Ana Belaval hosted a Smashing Pumpkins listening party at the Adler  Planetarium during the WGN Morning News Primetime Special Wednesday, and band frontman Billy Corgan had an interesting proposal for her — having a baby.

Here's the conversation:

Corgan: "When you're ready to have another, just let me know."

Belaval: "Oh no, that's closed. Factory closed!"

Corgan: "Since this is the 'primetime edition' can we go a little more adult?"

Belaval: "I take that very personally, that factory is closed, if you want to go somewhere else, go right ahead!"

Corgan and Belaval have known each other for years. Back in 2013, he even serenaded her live on WGN.
