There's a new addition to the family for Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro. He and his wife Erica welcomed their second child - and first boy - Cristian Julian Castro, who was born on Saturday in Washington, D.C.

Cristian's arrival was followed by a congratulatory phone call from President Obama. Secretary Castro, who is also the former mayor of San Antonio, Texas, said the baby and his mother are doing well. The Castros have a 5-year-old daughter as well.
