Darlene Ensign gave birth early Wednesday to a baby boy, Michael, at a Las Vegas hospital.
Ensign, a veterinarian before being elected to his seat representing Southern Nevada, said the baby arrived ahead of schedule and the doctor was not able to make it in time. He said he delivered the baby himself with the help of a nurse.
The Ensigns have two other children, a 5-year-old boy and 2-year-old girl.
