Mayor Luke Ravenstahl's office today revealed that he and his wife, Erin, are expecting their first child this fall.

"Erin and Luke Ravenstahl announced today that they have a proposed solution to Pittsburgh's declining population," the mayor said in an official release. "A joyful and grateful Erin and Luke are pleased to announce that they are expecting. (Post-Gazette, D. Majors)

Erin attributed the development to the mayor having had a "pervasive and consistent modus operandi," and of operating "under the cloak of wedlock."

Congratulations to the happy couple.

  2. BTW, Bram, get rid of the baby photo. Way too much, way too soon.
