Pleasanton's U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Dublin) and wife Brittany celebrated the birth of their second child last month, a baby girl named Kathryn.
"Meet Kathryn Watts Swalwell -- we'll call her 'Cricket.' Mama and baby are doing great. And I'm thrilled that for the first time as long as anyone can remember in my family, a male had a girl. #YearOfTheWoman," the congressman said on social media after his daughter's birth.
The baby girl -- whose formal name is Kathryn Watts Swalwell and is nicknamed "Cricket" -- was born on Oct. 24 in Washington, D.C., two weeks before voters re-elected her father to a fourth term in Congress.
Named in honor of Brittany's mother, Kathryn Swalwell weighed in at seven pounds and 13 ounces and was 20.5 inches tall at birth. She is a year and a half younger than her brother Nelson.
A 38-year-old Dublin native, Congressman Swalwell represents the 15th District, which includes Pleasanton, San Ramon, Dublin, Livermore, Union City, parts of Fremont, and the unincorporated areas of Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, Sunol, Ashland, Cherryland and Fairview.
