Secretary of Transportation has been on extended paid paternity leave since August, his office revealed Thursday night to Politico, finally answering the question of “Where is Mayor Pete?” that has been being asked as the nation has become mired in a supply chain crisis. Buttigieg and his husband Chasten became the parents of twins two months ago. A Buttigieg spokesman told Politico that while he is doing some work, Buttigieg intends to “continue to take some time over the coming weeks to support his husband and take care of his new children”
Pete Buttigieg posted a photo last month of the couple sharing a hospital bed while holding the newborns.
“Chasten and I are beyond thankful for all the kind wishes since first sharing the news that we’re becoming parents. We are delighted to welcome Penelope Rose and Joseph August Buttigieg to our family.”
