State Rep. Paul Scott, R-Grand Blanc, and former staffer having baby
GRAND BLANC, Michigan — State Rep. Paul Scott said today he's going to be a father soon.
Scott, R-Grand Blanc, said he and a former staff member will be welcoming a son together in a couple weeks.
Scott was most recently re-elected to the 51st state House seat, which represents southern Genesee County, referring to himself as a conservative "21st century Republican."
"This is the greatest thing that's ever happened to me," he said of the baby.
Scott said he and the mother, Amanda Grove, are in a strong relationship. She left his legislative office in May before working on his campaign for secretary of state, he said, which ended in August when he lost the five-way race for the Republican nomination.
There are no plans for marriage at this point, but Scott said "you never know what's going to happen in the future."
Scott said the baby will have two "loving parents."
"This has been an incredible experience," he said.
