Another baby ‘M’ for Rep. Brian Mast

Brian Mast is barely a week into the new Congress, but he’s already added another title — fourth-time dad.

The Floridan Republican missed House votes this week, and on Thursday he revealed why. Baby Major arrived at 9.3 pounds, 20.5 inches, he tweeted.

The Army veteran and his wife, Brianna, have names that sound a lot alike. Now they’re passing that gift on to their kids, in the form of the letter “M.” Along with baby Major, the couple have three other young children: Magnum, Maverick and Madalyn.
