Twins For Pete & Chasten Buttigieg!

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg and husband Chasten shared the news this morning they are now the proud parents of twins!

“Chasten and I are beyond thankful for all the kind wishes since first sharing the news that we’re becoming parents,” wrote Pete in a Saturday morning tweet. “We are delighted to welcome Penelope Rose and Joseph August Buttigieg to our family.”

Last month, Pete and Chasten shared they would soon become parents after a long journey through adoption.

Today’s news makes Pete Buttigieg the first-ever out gay parent in the U.S. Cabinet. Earlier this year he made history when he became the first out gay person confirmed by the Senate for a seat in the U.S. Cabinet.

The couple began dating in 2015 and married three years later in 2018.

Congratulations to the Buttigieg family!
