FRANKFORT, Ky. (KT) - The youngest female statewide officeholder in the country has now become the first Kentucky constitutional officer to give birth while in office.
Kentucky State Treasurer Allison Ball welcomed a baby boy, Levi Adrian Swan, on Tuesday, her office announced. He weighed 6 pounds and 15 ounces and was 20.5 inches long.
“Asa and I are excited to welcome our son into the world. We are thankful for this blessing from God and grateful for our family, friends, Dr. Cornelia Poston, and the staff of Norton’s Healthcare in Louisville for all their support during this exciting season,” Ball said.
The baby’s middle name, Adrian, is after Treasurer Ball’s great-uncle, Adrian Lafferty, a Korean War veteran and businessman from her native Floyd County in eastern Kentucky.
The child is the first born to Ball and her husband, Asa James Swan. Ball’s office said the family is doing fine.
