PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman is now a mother.
Hoffman announced on Twitter Thursday that she and her husband welcomed their first child, Clara Emlyn Hoffman, this week.
“We are all healthy and so happy to be starting this amazing new chapter,” Hoffman wrote.
And now we’re a family of three! This week, we welcomed Clara Emlyn Hoffman to the world. We are all healthy and so happy to be starting this amazing new chapter.— Kathy Hoffman (@kathyhoffman_az) November 18, 2021
Hoffman said she'll be on maternity leave through the end of the year “welcoming my little one home and into the world."
Hoffman, a Democrat, faces a difficult re-election fight when she returns to work in 2022.
