“My wife, Katie, and I are very excited to announce the arrival of our first child, Dakota Faye Miller. She was born Saturday, Dec. 5 at 10:27 p.m. just in time to root our Spartans on to victory! Dakota was born a healthy 7.7 lbs. and 20 inches.

“The past 12 months have been pretty intense, starting with my election to represent Warren and Center Line in Lansing, and my marriage to Katie on Dec. 13, 2014. My wife has been extremely supportive of my efforts as I have traveled to and from Lansing and throughout Southeast Michigan, during her pregnancy, fighting for my constituents. We feel truly blessed to welcome our healthy daughter into the world. With so much ugliness currently in the world, Dakota brings us a great sense of hope and motivation to make the future bright.”
