Patrick Kennedy is a daddy
Congratulations to Patrick Kennedy and his wife Amy! According to an email from his brother, Ted Kennedy Jr, the couple had a boy last night at 5:30pm. Here’s the complete message-
On Behalf of Patrick, Amy, Harper and the rest of the family, I am proud to announce the birth of Patrick and Amy’s child, Owen Patrick Kennedy. He was born April 15th at 5:30 p.m. weighing 6 pounds, 15 ounces and measuring 19 1/2 inches long. Patrick, Amy and the baby are doing well. Harper is happy to be a big sister. Owen stopped crying only when he was in his big sister’s arms.
At this time, Patrick asks for patience with communications as he and the family adjust to their newest addition. More information to follow with best contact information, baby pictures, and updates.
Best personal regards,
Back when Patrick Kennedy launched his first course at Brown University, he said he’d Skype with the class if his new baby kept him from teaching.
I have a call out to Brown to see if he’ll be telecommuting today. More details later.
UPDATE: Just got a call from Brown. Kennedy will NOT be Skyping with the class today, but he might be available for media inquiries. We’ll see about that.
