PROVIDENCE, R.I. (FOX Providence) - Providence Mayor Angel Taveras can soon add a new title to his resume.
The Providence Journal reports he is going to be a dad.
Taveras tells the paper his live-in girlfriend, Farah Escamilla is expecting in early January.
The baby is the first for the 40-year-old mayor.
He tells the paper he is "really excited" about the news.
Taveras says the couple does not know if they are having a boy or a girl, and the mayor didn't say whether marriage is in his future.
Mayor Taveras was a guest co-host Friday morning on The Rhode Show.
