Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

San Francisco Mayor and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom got a new job this afternoon: father.

Newsom and his wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom announced the birth of daughter Montana Tessa Newsom early this afternoon.

The due date for the couple's first child was later next week, but Newsom broke the news on Twitter today that the mother-to-be was on her way to the hospital and soon posted that the baby girl had arrived.

Despite the flurry of baby talk on Newsom's Twitter feed today, the last update hints that the tweets might taper off a bit:

"Jen is doing great.. Not sure she is happy I am on Twitter.." he posted at 2:21 p.m.
