“Chasten and I are so grateful for all the good wishes we’ve received since we announced we’re becoming parents,” the 39-year-old transportation minister tweeted on August 17.

His message received more than 200,000 “likes” around 20:00 GMT. Parents of twins respond with funny congratulations and pictures of their babies.

Pete Buttigieg is the former mayor of South Bend, a medium-sized town in Indiana. Almost unknown to the general public when he submitted his candidacy for the Democratic presidential primary in April 2019, this ex-soldier who passed through Afghanistan had a meteoric career.
