It’s been known for a while that [US] Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and his husband Chasten have been in the process of adding two children to their family, and on Saturday they posted a photo of the two of them holding Penelope Rose and Joseph August.
Chasten and I are beyond thankful for all the kind wishes since first sharing the news that we’re becoming parents. We are delighted to welcome Penelope Rose and Joseph August Buttigieg to our family. pic.twitter.com/kS89gb11Ax

This elicited comments such as:
Why are these two twats sitting in a hospital bed?
Did they throw the surrogate mom onto the floor?
Birthing people. The struggle is real.
It’s the optics.
Like they did the work.
Oozingly progressive virtue signalers in love with their image.
