No. 3 for McMorris Rodgers will be a first

U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and her husband Brian Rodgers are expecting their third baby in December.

A reader called to ask if that will make the Eastern Washington Republican the first member of Congress to have a third child while in office. We suspected so, because she was the first member of Congress to have a second child while in office in 2010.

But you never know about members of Congress, so we checked with her staff just to make sure. They say she will be the first to have a third child while in Congress.

McMorris Rodgers has a girl

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers gave birth to an 8 pound, 4 ounce baby girl just after midnight today in Washington, D.C.

McMorris Rodgers, who is among the House Republicans’ leading users of social media, announced the birth with a message on Twitter and a Facebook post headlined “It’s a girl.”

“Brian and I are overjoyed by the birth of our daughter,” she wrote. “Both the baby and I are doing well at the hosptial.”

Their son Cole is 3 1/2. McMorris Rodgers is the first member of Congress to give birth twice while in office.
