On Tuesday, Quebec Liberal Party (QLP) electees Marwah Rizqy and Greg Kelley officially became members of National Assembly. Then, they officially became parents.

Rizqy made the announcement on Twitter Thursday morning.

"[Greg Kelley] and I present to you Gabriel Kelley," she wrote. "A little in a hurry like his mother, but as calm as his father… for now."

Married since the fall of 2021, the couple were the first sitting-members to wed in the history of the National Assembly.

Both we re-elected in Quebec's Oct. 3 election, Rizqy for the Saint-Laurent district in Montreal's Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough and Kelley for the Jacques-Cartier district on Montreal's West Island.

On Tuesday, the pair were sworn along with other members of the QLP -- however, their oaths took place virtually as Rizqy was scheduled to give birth at any minute.
