Rep. Jared Polis, D-Boulder, and his partner Marlon Reis announced today, Sept. 30, the birth of their first child, a baby boy. The baby, born weighing 8-pounds 12-ounces, is named Caspian Julius. Both parents and newborn are reportedly doing well.
In the birth announcement, Polis and Reis wrote, “Baby has learned to cry already!”
The couple announced that they were expecting a baby back in June, but declined to reveal whether they were becoming parents through adoption or surrogate pregnancy.
Polis is one of few openly gay members of Congress.
