Mayor Morrissey and family welcome new son
Mayor Morrissey and his wife Stacy welcomed the latest addition to their family at 8:12 a.m., Tuesday, May 7. Their baby boy weighed in at 8 pounds, 9 ounces and is 20 3/4 inches long.
The Morrisseys had some setbacks and a scare that morning when complications were experienced by mother and baby during and after the delivery. The family is happy to report that Stacy is now doing fine, but their new baby boy will likely remain in the Neonatal ICU for at least two days.
“We are so proud of our new baby,” Mayor Morrissey said. “We’ve been through a lot over the years, and it’s been a long day. We’re so happy that our little guy is doing better this afternoon. He had initial distress but is making good progress. We expect him to recover fully, but we appreciate the continued prayers for our baby. God continues to bless us, and we are so grateful for the love and support we have received.”
Mayor Morissey was to remain at the bedside of his wife and newborn child during, but he continues regular contact with the Mayor’s Office.
“We are waiting to name our boy until Mom and Dad are able to spend a few minutes together with him,” added Mayor Morrissey.
