The couple were introduced by a mutual friend over nine years ago and became domestic partners in New York’s City Hall three years later.

Sweeney, who has roots in Donegal, published her first novel, "Among Other Things, I’ve Taken Up Smoking" in 2007. She works full time in the Center for the Humanities at the CUNY Graduate Center.The couple frequently travel home to Ireland where the majority of Murray’s family are based.

When she called her parents in Stepaside, Co. Dublin to deliver the good news and exciting tale, her mother’s response was appropriate.

“My mother said, ‘God bless her…isn’t it great that it happened to quickly,’” revealed Murray.

Just a week old, Finn’s first trip to Ireland is already being planned.

“We will bring him home at Christmas,” the Dubliner told the Irish Voice.
