Chasten Buttigieg marks New Year with photo of Pete and their twins at White House

Pete Buttigieg’s husband, Chasten, has marked the arrival of the New Year by posting a new photo of the couple with their twins on social media.

The accompanying caption read, “2021 brought with it many challenges, but it also gave us a lot to be grateful for. #HappyNewYear, friends. Here’s to a peaceful and joyful 2022!”

The photo shows Chasten and Pete holding twins Penelope and Joseph (nicknamed ‘Gus’).

2021 was certainly a very eventful year for the couple. Not only did Pete Buttigieg get a cabinet role in the White House as Secretary of Transportation, but the men adopted their newborn kids at the start of September.

Of course, besides the challenges any first-time parent encounters (including rushing one of their kids to hospital when he fell ill at Halloween), there’s been the ongoing Covid pandemic and associated supply chain problems for the Biden administration to deal with.

On Twitter, the picture has prompted over 75k likes and a similar number on Instagram. Many praised the image.

Some even posted their own family photos.

This wasn’t the only family photo the Buttigiegs shared over the holiday. They both posted a festive one on December 25th to wish people a merry Christmas.
