“For some time now, Chastain and I wanted to increase our family. We are excited to announce that we are parents!” The 39-year-old minister, one of the stars in the Democratic primary for the 2020 presidential election, wrote on Twitter.
The former White House nominee and former challenger to Joe Biden added.
Chasten Glezman Buttigieg shared the same text on Instagram, adding an icon that represented a bottle.
Pete Buttigieg is the former mayor of South Bend, a middle town in Indiana.
Almost unknown to the general public, when he submitted his presidential nomination in April 2019, this ex-military man, passing through Afghanistan, witnessed an impressive journey.
Today he is “the first openly LGBT person to be appointed to a permanent position in the Presidential Office,” according to the Victory Institute.
For a while, Chastain and I wanted to grow our family. We are happy to share that we have become parents! The process is not over yet and we are grateful for the love, support, and respect for our privacy that has been given to us. We can’t wait to share more soon.
