An arrival on Monday:
Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-PA, 8th District) issued the following statement today on the birth of his son:
“Jenni, Maggie and I couldn’t be happier to welcome John Martin 'Jack' Murphy to the family this morning. Jack was born at 9:15 AM, weighing in at 7 lbs, 14 ounces and 21 inches long. He's in the neonatal unit right now, and we’re thankful to the nurses and doctors at Lower Bucks Hospital for taking good care of him. Jenni did great and is resting comfortably. Please keep the little guy in your prayers.
“Jack is named for his grandfather, Jack Murphy, a Vietnam-era enlisted Navy Veteran, and great-grandfather Henry Martin, a U.S. Navy captain who served in World War II. We’re thrilled that he’s here- and although he's named after two Navy men, he'll be joining me in cheering for Army over Navy in Philly in a couple weeks and for the Phillies tonight.”
