State Sen. David Suetterlein, R-Roanoke County, has welcomed a new constituent to his district — and his family.

On Friday morning, his wife, Ashley, gave birth to a baby boy — the couple’s fourth child. “23.25 inches, 9 lbs, 14 oz, and unquantifiable happiness!,” Suetterlein posted on Twitter. The child’s name is Daniel Robert Suetterlein.

Knowing the birth was imminent, Suetterlein left Richmond late Thursday after a Senate Transportation committee. “Mark Obenshain was kind to present two bills late that night in House General Laws for me,” Suetterlein said.

By Monday, Suetterlein was back in Richmond, where the House of Delegates passed, by a wide margin, his bill to make public the votes of the state parole board.
