Gov. Ron DeSantis and First Lady Casey DeSantis announced via their Twitter feeds Thursday that they are expecting their third child.
“[email protected] and I are thrilled to celebrate our 10-Year anniversary by announcing that our young family is growing! The latest addition to the DeSantis crew will arrive next year. Madison and Mason are so excited to have another sibling,” Casey DeSantis announced.
“@FLCaseyDeSantis and I are overjoyed and grateful to God for blessing us with another precious gift. Looks like the Governor’s Mansion will have to stay baby-proofed for a little while longer,” the governor followed up.
The DeSantis’ daughter, Madison, was born in 2016 and Mason, their son, followed two years later.
There was no word on whether the new baby would be a boy or a girl. Press aides to the governor said no updates were planned immediately.
The child would be the fourth born to an incumbent Florida governor, according to the late House clerk Alan Morris’ Florida Handbook. The first was Elizabeth Hutchinson Broward, daughter of Napoleon Bonaparte Broward, in 1906. Claude and Erika Kirk had two children while he served in office – Claudia in 1968 and Erik Henry in 1970.
