Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg marked his Christmas Day celebration by tweeting out a photograph of himself with his husband, Chasten, and their adopted twin babies.
“From our family to yours, Merry Christmas!” Buttigieg said in the tweet.
The photo showed Buttigieg and his husband sitting on a carpet in front of a Christmas tree with each one of them holding one of the twins.
The Guardian published a story in December about the announcement Buttigieg and his husband had made about their adopting of twins.
The story said in part:
“Pete Buttigieg and his husband have announced the birth of adopted twins.
“In a post to social media on Saturday, the US transportation secretary and former candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination said: ‘Chasten and I … are delighted to welcome Penelope Rose and Joseph August Buttigieg to our family.’ The Buttigiegs announced last month that they were engaged in the adoption process.”
