FRANKFORT, Ky. — Kentucky State Treasurer Allison Ball, a native of Prestonsburg, has given birth to her second child.

Ball and her husband, Dr. Asa James Swan, welcomed the 6 pound, 15 ounce girl last Tuesday. Her name is Marigold Sophia Swan.

Ball said her son Levi was excited to meet his little sister.

Ball made history in 2018 by becoming the first statewide elected official in Kentucky to give birth while in office. Since then, former Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes and Lt. Governor Jacqueline Coleman have also had children while in office.

Now, Ball becomes the first statewide office-holder to give to two children while in office.
