Secretary of Transportation Pete Butigeg and his husband Chasten are celebrating the arrival of two bundles of joy instead of one.
The first openly homosexuals confirmed in the Senate as a cabinet shared last month that the couple became parents after seeking adoption.
“I can’t wait to share it sooner,” he tweeted.
Butigeg shared more on Saturday and tweeted photos of Chasten and him hugging their newborns, respectively.
“Chasten and I have been grateful for all sorts of wishes since we first shared the news that we will be parents,” the secretary wrote in his personal Twitter account. “
He did not give any other details about the baby, such as whether they were twins.
Butigeg, 39, has publicly spoken about his desire to be a father since the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination campaign.
Butigeg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and Chasten, 32, married in June 2018. Butigeg’s father, Joseph, died six months after the wedding.
