Andrea Jenkyns announces the birth of her son: Clifford George

On Wednesday during the Prime Ministers statement on Article 50, West Yorkshire MP Jason McCartney, announced to the House of Commons that Andrea had given birth to her son, Clifford George.

The Prime Minister conveyed her congratulations and sent her best wishes to the new parents.

Andrea and her partner Jack are excited to welcome their first child to the world. Clifford was born a healthy weight of 7 lbs and 6 oz.

Clifford is named after Andrea’s late father who sadly died in 2011 of a hospital based infection and was the driving force behind her entering politics. Andrea said:

‘At the age of 42 I am overjoyed to announce the birth of my first son, Clifford George. Following a challenging pregnancy, which involved several stays in hospital, I am relieved to finally welcome my beautiful boy to the world and I am excited to become a Mum for the first time. Becoming a mother is such a moving and life changing experience and I am overwhelmed by the love and protection I feel towards my little boy.’

‘Being on the Committee on Exiting the European Union and an enthusiastic campaigner for leaving the EU I am surprised and proud to welcome my “Brexit Baby” to the world on the same day as Article 50 is triggered’.

Andrea will be taking some time off to recover from the birth of her first child and has arranged for her office to remain open as usual to support any issues that constituents may have.
