BABY-BOY JOY FOR QNS. POL
By MAGGIE HABERMAN, NY Post
Queens Councilwoman Melinda Katz, a leading contender for city comptroller, has given birth to the baby boy she conceived through in-vitro fertilization.
Katz, 42, delivered the baby on Saturday morning, she told The Post.
She will raise him on her own.
Baby Boy Katz - yet to be named - was a little over a month early, and weighed in at 4 pounds, 8 ounces, Katz said.
"He took me a bit by surprise . . . but I'm feeling great and the baby is healthy and beautiful," said the councilwoman.
The only woman running for comptroller, she said she will stay close to home over the next month with the baby, but will keep up on what's happening in her district and in the council through staffers.
