Wollondilly MP Jai Rowell and wife Belinda have welcomed a new bundle of joy into their family.
Chase was born on Friday, March 2 after an emergency caesarean.
Mum and bub are recovering well.
Chase weighed in at 3.850 kgs, 49cm and 37.5 cm head circumference.
Mr Rowell said he was looking forward to taking his new son home shortly now that he had graduated from the special care unit.
He has already changed three nappies and is prepared for many sleepless nights.
“All in all it has been a long journey but very exciting,” Mr Rowell said.
“Older brothers Will and Menzies are very excited.
“As I always say, the best job I will ever have is to be their dad.
“Family is awesome.”
