I am proud to announce that my second son, Micah Damien Vasta, was born at a healthy 8lbs 7oz, 53cm, on Saturday, 7 February, at 1.40pm.
My wife Fang is doing well, and our son Zachary is overjoyed at the arrival of his new baby brother.
We have received so many kind words from the community. We are blessed to be able to raise our children among such caring people in the electorate of Bonner.
I look forward to returning to work in the coming weeks, doing my utmost to represent other families and the rest of my constituents in my electorate, and getting on with the job of government.
I thank my colleagues and friends in the community for their well wishes and support at this joyous time.
