(SACRAMENTO) – Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes (D-Corona) became the first California legislator to give birth to triplets while serving in office when she gave birth to two boys and one girl last week. Assemblymember Cervantes issued the following statement:
“My wife and I are blessed to welcome our three newborns into the world. We are deeply grateful for the love and support from our family, friends, and the medical team who have been with us on this exciting journey. We look forward to celebrating the holidays with the three newest additions to our family. At this time, we ask for your prayers and well wishes.”
Assemblymember Cervantes is the first openly LGBT California state legislator, and fourth California state legislator, to give birth while serving in office. She looks forward to joining the millions of Californians who balance parenthood and profession when she returns to our State Capitol to continue serving California’s 60th Assembly District:
“I am proud to be both a parent and a public servant, and remain committed to continuing to fight for the hardworking families of the 60th Assembly District,” Cervantes continued.
Assemblymember Cervantes and her family are in good health and appreciate respect for their privacy during this time.
