https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirsten_Gillibrand

Kirsten Elizabeth Gillibrand (née Rutnik; born December 9, 1966) is an American politician and the junior United States Senator from New York, in office since 2009. Previously she served in the United States House of Representatives, representing New York's 20th congressional district, from 2007 to 2009. She is a member of the Democratic Party. Gillibrand was sworn in on January 26, 2009; at 42, she entered the chamber as the youngest senator in the 111th Congress.

Her maternal grandmother is Dorothea "Polly" Noonan, founder of the Albany Democratic Women's Club, as well as a leader in Albany Mayor Erastus Corning's powerful political machine, which lasted for more than 40 years.

She has Austrian, Scottish, German, and Irish ancestry.[7]

"In 2008, Gillibrand was the sixth woman to have a child while serving as a member of Congress. She continued to work until the day of Henry's delivery, for which she received a standing ovation from her colleagues in the House the next day."
