Workers' Party Member of Parliament (MP) Raeesah Khan announced the birth of her second child on Jan. 2, 2021.
The Sengkang GRC MP shared a photo on Facebook and Instagram of herself and her husband holding the newborn baby.
The birth of Raeesah's child came less than two days after fellow Sengkang MP He Ting Ru announced the birth of her third son.
Raeesah shared that the name given to the baby is "Ayla", which is a feminine name that means "light", "earth", "born of knowledge" in Hindi.
She described having a "rocky start" at the start of labour, but she and her baby are both well.The 27-year-old is already a mother of one boy and she occasionally shares about parenting on Twitter.
I’m most proud of how I parent, and work hard at it everyday. Huge believer in conscious parenting and letting children set their own boundaries. pic.twitter.com/eBZQyfmcuc— Raeesah Khan (@RaeesahKhanwpsg) September 26, 2020
since my son was born I’ve made a conscious effort to buy books that talk about identity, Intersectionality and social justice. His favorite book right now is A is for Activist. pic.twitter.com/tkyEKjZgOO— Raeesah Khan (@RaeesahKhanwpsg) July 1, 2020
As the two Sengkang MPs go on maternity leave, the rest of WP's team and other members in the party will stand in for them for house visits, estate walks and meet-the-people sessions during this period.
