"We're so excited to share that we are expecting a baby this fall and we cannot wait to meet our precious bundle of joy, Stefanik, now the No. 3 House Republican, also wrote in the post Saturday.
Stenfanik became chairwoman last month, after her conference voted to remove outspoken Trump critic Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney.
House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy and Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise, the conference's No. 1 and No. 2 respectively, each posted a congratulatory message on Stefanik's announcement.
