Cathy McMorris Rodgers Welcomes Daughter Brynn Catherine

House Republican Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) welcomed a baby girl on Sunday.

Rodgers announced the birth of her daughter Brynn Catherine on Monday, posting a photo of the newborn on Instagram:

"Welcome Brynn Catherine! (Born at 6:19 am on Nov. 24, weighing 7 lbs. 6 oz.)," Rodgers' Instagram says. "Nothing compares to the miracle of bringing a new life into the world. She's beautiful and seems to be taking it all in stride. Our hearts are full."

In a July statement about the pregnancy, Rodgers said she was due in December. According to Roll Call, she is the only woman to have given birth twice while serving as a member of Congress.
