The Democratic lawmaker announced the arrival of Maile Pearl Bowlsbey Monday, making Duckworth the first USA senator to have a baby while in office.

Duckworth on Monday welcomed Maile Pearl Bowlsbey, her second child with her husband Brian Bowlsbey, her office said.

Pearl Bowlsbey Johnson was Bryan's great Aunt, an Army Officer & a nurse who served during the Second World War.

"I've had multiple IVF cycles and a miscarriage trying to conceive again, so we're very grateful", she told The Sun-Times.

Duckworth had her first child in 2014, when she was serving in the House of Representatives.

There are plenty of trolls, of course, who still think that motherhood is incompatible with politics, or any other career for that matter. Her office confirmed the birth.

Some employees returned to the building to help first responders gain access to the facility, YouTube revealed Wednesday. The 36-year-old man remains at San Francisco General Hospital but his condition has improved, the hospital says.

In his address, Duckworth thanked his family and the medical team.

Duckworth said last month that she is working with party leadership to change Senate rules in order to allow her to bring her baby onto the Senate floor while the chamber is in session. Duckworth is a retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel and double amputee whose Black Hawk helicopter was shot down in 2004 during the Iraq War. "When my new daughter is born, I'll be able to take paid time to care for her, but most people aren't so fortunate; they have to rush right back to work".

The statement said that the senator and her family were doing well.

When Duckworth came home, she entered politics, serving as director of the Illinois Veterans Affairs and as an Assistant Secretary of Veterans Affairs in President Barack Obama's administration.

"Parenthood isn't just a women's issue, it's an economic issue and one that affects all parents-men and women alike", Duckworth said in her statement Monday.
