Anastasia Michaeli is 1st MK to give birth during tenure

The history has been made in Tel Hashomer maternity ward on Saturday night. Not only Ms Michaeli is the first MK to do it, but the child is the family's number 8. They are going for a football team, obviously.

Some male MKs seem to be slightly annoyed by a young, inexperienced and female to boot MK besting them.

The Knesset speaker, Ruby Rivlin, was picked up by the microphone (see above) that wasn't turned off, mumbling "Yes, we can..." several times after the news of the baby reached the Knesset.
