Lt. Gov. Austin Davis and Second Lady Blayre Holmes Davis released the following statement:
“The Second Lady and I are thrilled to announce the arrival of our daughter, Harper. We are grateful for the doctors, nurses and our doula for their care over the past nine months and during the delivery. They supported Blayre throughout her pregnancy and ensured her birthing experience was empowering.
“Black women are nothing short of magical, and I know that today more than ever.
“We will be spending the coming weeks caring for and bonding with our daughter. We will treasure this time, which is so vital for an infant and new parents. Parental leave is something every new parent should have access to.
“We appreciate all of the prayers and well wishes we’ve received, and we thank the good people of Pennsylvania for your love and support.“
