Rep. Brad Wenstrup scored his first child Saturday, welcoming his 6-pound, 15-ounce son, Brad Robert Wenstrup Jr. to the world in Cincinnati.

The Ohio Republican told HOH earlier this year that he and his wife, Monica, were on board for a “surprise” birth, deciding they’d rather find out whether it was a boy or girl at the time of delivery. But the newly minted pop appears to have slipped right into doting parent mode.

“I can fully understand, even more than I did before, the need to not only protect and defend, but to nurture and provide for one that follows us. Monica and I have always felt called to try to leave the world at least a little better than we found it,” Wenstrup declared in a release. “Brad renews that commitment for us.”

Per his office, Wenstrup is planning to spend a week in Ohio with his newly expanded family before returning to one of the least productive congresses in history.
