S.F. mayor, assistant welcome a baby girl

San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown is a new dad — at age 67.

Carolyn Carpeneti, 38, the mayor's chief fund-raising coordinator, gave birth Sunday to Sydney Minetta Brown, a 6-pound, 8-ounce girl.

"I am overjoyed at the arrival of this beautiful baby girl," Brown said in a statement.

He has been separated from his wife, Blanche, for 20 years. Brown has said he does not plan to divorce or get remarried. He has three grown children and two grandchildren.

Brown said he now hopes to protect the privacy of both mother and child.
