Dome Kwabenya MP Sarah Adwoa Safo and her husband Hanny Mouthiseb have welcomed their first child as a couple.
This was revealed by Minority Chief Whip Mubarak Muntaka during Adwoa Safo's appearance before Parliament's Appointments Committee on Wednesday, February 17, 2021.
Adwoa Safo who has been appointed by President Nana Akufo-Addo as the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection appeared for her vetting.
The Dome Kwabenya MP was spared a marathon vetting and relatively spent a short time answering questions.
It later turned out that the committee had considered the fact that Adwoa Safo was a nursing mother.
Speaking at the vetting, Muntaka indicated that he was not going to keep long with Safo because he "didn't want to deprive her baby."
Taking his turn to aks questions, Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu reiterated Muntaka's point and also promised to keep it short.
Notwithstanding the considerations from her colleagues, Adwoa Safo discharged herself creditably during her vetting.
The confirmation comes after rumours went viral on social media that the former Deputy Majority Leader had given birth.
While the MP had indicated in November 2020 that she was pregnant and was going to have a victory baby after the 2020 elections, no official communication has come from her since giving birth.
The birth of Safo and Mouthiseb's first child comes just a few months after the couple celebrated their first wedding anniversary.
As previously reported by YEN.com.gh, to celebrate their wedding anniversary, the MP shared photos and shower praises on her husband.
Adwoa Safo already has two children with Kennedy Agyapong.
