The little girl, who weighed just over 8 pounds and measured 20 inches long, was born at 9:17 a.m. CST in San Antonio.
“Both mother and daughter are healthy and happy,” the Texas Democrat announced via a statement. “We are grateful to the staff at the Methodist Hospital and to all who have kept our family in their prayers. ”
