Call it a political party! Canada’s Minister of Justice, Peter MacKay, and his activist wife, Nazanin Afshin-Jam MacKay, say they have never felt more complete since welcoming their son, Kian — pronounced “Key-on” — Alexander, on April 1 in Ottawa.

The best part of being with him is “watching him grow and change everyday,” says Peter. “He is always happy and smiling.”

And as they introduce him to the country on the pages of Hello! Canada, we can see how he’s earned their vote.

The four-month-old is an adorable, happy baby, and a carbon copy of his father, right down to his reddish hair, blue eyes and dimples. “I think the only things he inherited from me are his eyebrows, and his chin sort of looks like my grandfather’s,” says Vancouver-raised Nazanin. “I swear, when I’m walking around I wonder if people think it’s my baby!”

Not to worry; it’s clear she has the mother’s touch. “Sometimes I just look at him, his sweet face looking back at me, studying my face and smiling, and tears of joy run down my cheeks.”
