As California Democrats converged here for their annual convention Friday, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom offered this unimpeachable reason for his absence: His child’s birth.

Dutch William Siebel Newsom, born Friday in San Francisco, is the fourth child of Newsom and his wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom.

An announcement from the lieutenant governor’s office said the town of Dutch Flat “is a special place for the Newsom family, holding both historic and contemporary significance.”

The lieutenant governor, a candidate for governor in 2018, is expected to address delegates in a video on Saturday. Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer, a potential candidate, spoke at a welcome reception Friday.
