Congratulations to the Duckworth family on the birth of their daughter.



Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) delivered her second daughter on Monday — making history as the first U.S. senator to give birth while in office.

Duckworth named her daughter Maile Pearl Bowlsbey, after her husband Bryan Bowlsbey’s great aunt, who was an army officer and a nurse who served during World War II, the senator said in a statement. The Illinois senator has one other daughter, Abigail.

Congratulations to her family. That's pretty amazing at age 50.
Totally.

My mom was two months shy of 45 when I was born. And then had two more of my brothers over next three years after that... :)

My grandmother had her last baby at age 50. The last one out of 11. She didn't even start menopause until she was 60.

Best wishes for the Senator!! :)

I'm exhausted and I don't have a new born, a toddler and a full time job. Congratulations to her and her growing family. She is a better woman than I could ever be, at 50 no less.
