U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth gave birth to a daughter Monday morning becoming the first sitting senator to have a baby while in office.
Duckworth had her first child in 2014 when she was serving in the house of representatives. She is 50-years-old and one of only 10 women in the history of the nation to give birth while in Congress.
Everyone else who had a baby while in office was serving in the House at the time.
Also, she also is a sponsor or co-sponsor of bills dealing with affordable child care, paid parental leave and other infant and maternal health issues.
