New dad Newsom says he's tired

New dad Mayor Gavin Newsom is trying to build stamina while balancing fatherhood, his City Hall duties and a gubernatorial campaign.

He appears to be handling it swimmingly so far.

Newsom’s actress wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom gave birth to daughter Montana Tessa Siebel Newsom on Sept. 18. Since then, the mayor has said numerous times Montana has had a profound effect on him.

We could tell. The sleepy-eyed mayor was visibly drained at the Second Annual Renewable Energy Finance Conference at the downtown Palace Hotel this morning.

Still, he was able to hide it rather well during a brief speech to a packed room in which he lauded The City’s green initiatives in recent years.

When the speech was done and Newsom and his entourage had swiftly slipped out of the conference room, we could tell the mayor was trying to keep awake amid a bustling schedule.

“Tired,” Newsom told The Examiner. “Last night was tough.”

As could be expected, he called the daddy experience an “unbelievable thing” — exhausting and rewarding at once.

But there is one drawback, he said. After many more sleepless nights, Newsom said he’s bound to slip up and say something he’ll regret in public. He said we should expect to have something to write about shortly.

“Trust me, you’re going to have some mistakes in the next few months,” Newsom said.

We’re certainly not complaining about those prospects.
