Rep. Herrera Beutler announces pregnancy via Facebook page

"A few years ago when I was newly married and recently elected to Congress, I remember fielding some speculation as to whether or not I was 'expecting.' Well… my husband Dan and I are thrilled to announce that this fall, there will be yet another person in Southwest Washington who will — for their entire adult life — get to explain 'No, no, it’s pronounced Butler.' That’s right — we’re expecting a baby!" she wrote.

She did not indicate when the baby is due.

The two-term lawmaker is a former aide to Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.).

McMorris Rodgers, who has had two children while in Congress, announced her last pregnancy — in August 2010 — via Twitter.
