Alexandria’s Monika Jones Chapman and her husband City Councilman John Taylor Chapman welcomed their son into the world in the early morning hours of Saturday, Feb. 8.
John Taylor Chapman II was born at 2:44 a.m. and weighed in at 7 pounds, 11 ounces. The kid already has a few nicknames, including JTC II, Deuce and Baby J.
Mom and the baby are doing fine and all family will return home today from Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington. At night, the boy slept in a crib next to his mother and his father, who slept on a hospital sofa bed.
“He was quiet, very quiet,” Chapman said of his son’s birth. “He’s doing very well now, passing all his tests.”
The couple, who married last March in Richmond, got to the hospital at around 3 p.m. on Friday. They called their folks on the way and met them there.
“She (Monika) was having pain most of that day, so I stayed home because I figured something was up,” Chapman said.
Mayor Justin Wilson congratulated the couple on Twitter and Facebook.
Congrats to my colleague @j_chapman99 and Monika on the birth of their son!

Chapman added that he still plans on attending Tuesday night’s council meeting, but “we’ll see.”
“Obviously if I’m not there you’ll know why,” he said.
