23 Mostly Terrible Name Suggestions for Pete Buttigieg’s New Baby

Pete Buttigieg is a dad now, CNN reports.

The Transportation Secretary and onetime Mayor of South Bend, Indiana—who famously but unsuccessfully ran against Joe Biden in the most recent presidential election cycle in the hopes of becoming the first openly millennial president in the history of the United States—tweeted on Tuesday that he and his husband (pictured above) now have a child together.

“For some time, Chasten and I have wanted to grow our family,” reads Buttigieg’s post. “We’re overjoyed to share that we’ve become parents! The process isn’t done yet and we’re thankful for the love, support, and respect for our privacy that has been offered to us. We can’t wait to share more soon.”

“Some news!” Chasten added in a quote tweet.

“Being a parent has been one of the great joys of my life,” Interior Secretary Deb Haaland said in a tweet of her own. “Congrats to you and Chasten on this terrific news!”
