Her partner is not the only person Bush has soft-launched on her social media.

Shortly after her "baeday" post, the politician posted her children on Mother's day, captioned "Happy Mother's Day! Sending an extra special shoutout to all the single mothers. I celebrate you every day. Grateful to my babies for making me a mama."

Representative Cori revealed that she suffered severe health complications during both of her pregnancies that nearly resulted in the deaths of her children in testimony during a congressional hearing. 

According to People, Bush recounted her desperation to keep her newborn alive. 

She remarked, "Every day, Black women are subjected to harsh and racist treatment during pregnancy and childbirth. Every day, Black women die because the system denies our humanity."

Luckily, Cori was able to fight against the odds and now has two children who have grown up to be in their 20s and she keeps her followers updated about her children through her social handle
