    Congressman Joe Kennedy and Wife Lauren Welcome 2nd Child

    There is a new addition to the Kennedy family in Massachusetts.

    Democratic U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy and his wife, Lauren, announced the birth of James Matthew Kennedy on Wednesday.

    Kennedy said on Twitter the baby was "doing great" and has already received his first gift — a New England Patriots jersey from his grandfather, former U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy II.

    The congressman missed the final votes in the House this week on the Republican tax overhaul bill to be with his wife after she went into labor. He has been sharply critical of the bill.

    It's the couple's second child. A daughter, Eleanor, was born just about two years ago.
