Former presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg and his husband Chasen welcomed their first children together, twins Penelope Rose and Joseph.

"Chasten and I are beyond thankful for all the kind wishes since first sharing the news that we're becoming parents. We are delighted to welcome Penelope Rose and Joseph August Buttigieg to our family," the post reads, showing them both holding a twin each and gazing into each other's eyes.

Last month, the Democratic politician announced that his family would be growing.

"For some time, Chasten and I have wanted to grow our family. 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," he tweeted.

The secretary of transportation, who is also the first openly-gay Cabinet member in U.S. history married his husband in 2018.
