Roll Call politics reporter Kyle Trygstad announced the birth of his first child, Michaela Rayne Trygstad, on Friday afternoon.
“Mom and baby are doing wonderfully,” Trygstad, who covers Senate races, said in an email just a couple of hours after his daughter was born at 3:07 p.m.
“She’s born into a proud journalism tradition with grandpa Carl Cannon and great grandpa Lou Cannon,” Trygstad added.
Michaela clocked in at 9 pounds, 7 ounces, and is 21 inches tall. Trygstad’s wife, Kelly, was almost named Michaela, and the couple loved the name.
She arrived approximately one week late — ironic for Trygstad, who has not missed a deadline in years.
