The couple already has a son, Caspian Julius, who is 2½ years old and is nicknamed “CJ.”
As with CJ’s birth, Polis is revealing few details, saying the birth would remain a private family matter.
Rep. Polis’ sister Jordanna Schutz explains the origins of the family name “Barucha”:
My great-great aunt, Kasha Barucha, fled to the U.S. to protect her family after being active in the movement for increased civil rights & liberties and democratic representation during the 1905 Russian Revolution. Barucha means blessing. It is a good day to celebrate two blessings: my new niece, and the promise of “Inalienable Rights” to “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness”- Happy 4th!*
*(To Boston people, happy belated 3rd!)
Congratulations to Rep. Polis and his growing family. We’d send flowers, but being the 3rd wealthiest member of Congress (and founder of ProFlowers.com), they’re probably good to go.
