Pete Buttigieg recently welcomed newborn twins with his partner, Chasten.
Buttigieg married Chasten in 2018 in South Bend, Indiana.
President Biden appointed him to U.S. Secretary of Transportation.
The appointment makes him the first openly gay man to hold a Cabinet position.
He took parental leave in August in order to care for his newborn twins.
Tucker Carlson took issue with this, saying, “Paternity leave, they call it, trying to figure out how to breastfeed. No word on how that went.”
Buttigieg clapped back, explaining that taking care of a child is not a vacation; it’s work.
He describes parenting as “the most demanding thing I think I've ever done.”
Despite the struggle of parenthood, Buttigieg is still happy to be a father and says he catches himself grinning half the time.
