Coleman made the announcement during a Democratic dinner on the eve of the Fancy Farm picnic, calling her baby the “newest member of team Beshear-Coleman.”

Coleman is on the ticket with Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andy Beshear. She and her husband held a onesie with a Beshear campaign logo across the chest.

Coleman is an educator and basketball coach and predicted her baby will be “an awesome shooting guard.”

The candidate for lieutenant governor will get time in the limelight Saturday during stump speeches at the Fancy Farm picnic – Kentucky’s biggest political event.
