MERRIAM, Kan. (AP) -- Congressman Kevin Yoder is a new father.

The northeast Kansas representative announced on his website that his wife, Brooke, delivered the child Thursday at Shawnee Mission Medical Center in Merriam. The girl, named Caroline Lucille Yoder, measured 20 inches and weighed 6 pounds, 1 ounce.

Yoder says mother and baby are healthy and resting at home. He described the baby as a "true blessing" and said he and his wife "couldn't be happier" to add Caroline to their family.
