WASHINGTON, D.C. – D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has adopted a baby, she announced Monday night.

“It is with great joy and excitement that I share with you that late last year, I decided to begin the adoption journey,” said Mayor Bowser in a tweet.

The process happened much quicker that the mayor expected, and she is excited to announce she is now a mom.

Bowser says she is nervous and thrilled and will be taking the next week or so to enjoy time with her new baby.

The mayor says she will still remain in contact with her office.

“Please keep us in your prayers, and I thank you in advance for allowing us this private time,” said Mayor Bowser in her statement.
