Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and his husband, Chasten, are celebrating the arrival of not one — but two — bundles of joy.
Last month, the Senate confirmed the first openly gay person for a Cabinet post. The couple shared that they had adopted after becoming parents.
He tweeted, “We can’t delay to share more soon,”
Buttigieg tweeted more Saturday, sharing a photo of Chasten holding a newborn and him tweeting it.
“Chasten, I and all those who have sent us kind words since we shared the news about our parents becoming parents, are truly grateful,” the secretary wrote via his Twitter account. “We are thrilled to welcome Penelope Rose & Joseph August Buttigieg into our family.”
He did not reveal any other information about the babies, including whether they were twins.
Since his 2020 campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, Buttigieg (39) has spoken out about his desire to be a father.
Chasten, 32 year old, and Buttigieg (the former mayor of South Bend in Indiana) were married June 2018. Six months after the wedding, Joseph Buttigieg, Buttigieg’s dad, died.
