But the couple, Mary and Gabe, explained that they were on their way to the hospital for a 9 a.m. c-section appointment.

A United States mayor had his morning turned upside down when a couple asked him to marry them just 45 minutes before the bride was due to give birth. But Mayor Pete was not "woofing" anyone, he told CNN's Van Jones that he first encountered Glezman on Hinge.

Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg, unknown to most Americans just weeks ago, announced Monday that his campaign raised $7 million in the opening months of 2019.

The 37-year-old mayor shared in the post that while "unstructured time is rare especially these days", after running into the couple in the hallway and hearing their request only 45 minutes before their appointment, he said, "Obviously there's only one answer to that question".

He Wednesday the couple right away. Mary Jones, he noted, had her paperwork for the wedding with her hospital papers, and they had come to the mayor's office hoping he'd officiate.

The rings weren't yet ready, so an enterprising staffer found a ribbon to substitute.

"Congratulations to the newlyweds and new parents, and welcome, Jade, to this unlikely and lovely world!"

The couple later sent him a photo of their newborn daughter, Jade.

"It's moments like this that I'll miss when my term as mayor comes to an end", he wrote, publishing a picture of the baby girl.

That Buttigieg is first out of the gate suggests his team is confident about the grassroots support he is receiving, even though he has not officially entered the race to see who will win the Democratic nomination and challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.

Maybe US politics could use someone who appreciates sweet moments like these.
