WASHINGTON, DC. - Washingtonians: Meet the first baby of the District — and on national television, no less.

Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) introduced her daughter Miranda to a national audience on Thursday in an interview with “Today” host Hoda Kotb.

The five-minute segment included the first-ever public images of Miranda Elizabeth Bowser, who was in the mayor’s arms as she greeted Kotb in her Northwest Washington home. The 14-week-old baby was later seen cooing in a pink dress and lying in a crib in a room adorned with giraffes on green wallpaper, the mayor’s campaign color.

Bowser, who is 46 and unmarried, said she embraced adopting a child as a single mother.

“I did feel like that part of me was missing, and I knew that I had a lot of love to pour into a child. And I didn’t know how long the process would take,” said Bowser, later adding:

“The message I hope to send is that families are made in all kinds of ways and they are all special. And we should celebrate family in whatever way that children are loved.”
