Congressman Wenstrup announces birth of first child

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Congressman Brad Wenstrup and his wife, Monica, announced the birth of their son, welcoming him into the world on Saturday, November 9th.

Brad Robert Wenstrup, Jr., weighing 6 pounds, 15 ounces, and born in Cincinnati, is the couple's first child.

"I can fully understand, even more than I did before, the need to not only protect and defend, but to nurture and provide for one that follows us. Monica and I have always felt called to try to leave the world at least a little better than we found it. Brad renews that commitment for us," said Wenstrup.

Wenstrup will spend time with his family this week and resume his legislative responsibilities from home before returning to Washington.

The Wenstrup family will continue to reside in Southern Ohio.
