Polis announces birth of son


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.
