For the first time, the current US senator becomes a mother during her official duties. Tammy Duckworth (Tammy Duckworth) gave birth to a baby, staying on the post.
A Democrat from Illinois gave birth to the daughter of Mile Pearl Bowlesby on Monday. She and her husband Brian Bowlesby, as well as their eldest daughter Abigail, met the arrival of a new member of the family together. According to Duckworth, former Sen. Daniel K. Akaka, a Democrat from Hawaii, “was able to bless” the child until his death last week. “He came up with names for both our daughters, which means he will always be with us,” says Duckworth.
Duckworth announced her pregnancy in social networks in January and in an interview with The Chicago Sun-Times described her struggle for pregnancy. Both daughters were conceived by artificial insemination. She states that her experience as a mother formed her legislative goals and gave her “an important perspective in the halls of Congress.”
Tammy Duckworth was a military man. On November 12, 2004, as part of the crew of the Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk participated in the Battle of Fallujah, the helicopter was shot down and Duckworth lost both legs as a result of the injuries.
