“It’s a girl!”
That’s the tweet Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers sent out this afternoon, announcing the birth of her second child.
In addition to being one of just eight members of Congress to give birth while in office, Congresswoman Rodgers became the first to give birth twice while in office. Her son Cole was born in April 2007.
The baby girl was born at 12:21 am this morning, December 1st, and weighed 8 pounds, 4.5 ounces.
“Brian and I are overjoyed by the birth of our daughter,” Congresswoman Rodgers said on Facebook. “Both the baby and I are healthy and doing well at the hospital. We look forward to bringing her home soon.”
