U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth has made history… becoming the first sitting Senator to give birth while in office.
Duckworth and her husband Bryan Bowlesby have announced the birth of their second child, Maile Pearl Bowlesby.
She’s named for Bryan Bowlesby’s great aunt, an Army officer and nurse who served during World War Two. A statement from Duckworth’s office says mother and baby are doing fine.
