It’s a Boy!


My wife Kate and I are proud to share the joyous news that our son, Charles Francis Greenbacker IV, was born at 10:17pm last night. Everyone is doing quite well: mother and child are resting peacefully, and dad is over the moon.

Birth stats: 8 lbs 6 oz, 20.75 inches

Since there are already several “Charlies” in our family, we’ve chosen the nickname “Chase” for our little guy.

As I mentioned earlier, I’ve selected the My Father No. 1 as the “It’s a Boy!” cigars to mark the birth of my son. I figured the No. 1 was an appropriate choice for my first born, and there’s plenty of room in the series to start a tradition should my wife & I be fortunate enough to have more children. So, if you’ve got any of these great sticks lying around, please feel free to join me in a celebratory smoke!

– The Proud Papa

Charlie has been enjoying cigars since 2000 and generally prefers a medium-bodied, full-flavored smoke. A USAF vet, he currently works as a data scientist focusing on natural language processing and is pursuing a PhD in computer science in his spare time. Originally from Connecticut and now residing in Northern Virginia, Charlie is also a fan of football, science fiction, political philosophy, and single malt scotch. You can contact Charlie on Twitter @greenbacker.
