Former Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions is Donald Trump‘s Attorney General. Sessions and his wife, Mary Blackshear Sessions, have three children – Mary Abigail Reinhardt, Ruth Sessions Walk and Sam Sessions.

On February 8, the Senate confirmed Sessions as the new U.S. Attorney General. He has recused himself from all investigations related to Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential campaign due to his own role as an adviser for the Trump campaign.

Here’s a look at Sessions’ children.


1. Mary’s Husband Paul Is a Commanding Officer on the U.S.S. Alabama Submarine

Mary Abigail Reinhardt is married to Paul Reinhardt, the Commanding Officer, Blue Crew of the U.S.S. Alabama submarine. He graduated from the University of Virginia in 1997 with a B.A. in Government and was commissioned through the Naval ROTC program.

Paul became commanding officer in December 2014, taking over from Commander Brad Terry.

“I know I have some big shoes to fill. We will continue to improve upon what you and the crew have already established,” Reinhardt said during the ceremony, AL.com reports. “I am truly humbled and honored to be your commanding officer. It is an awesome responsibility to be in command – especially on the finest submarine in the fleet – and one I do not take lightly.”

The U.S.S. Alabama crew famously chants “Go ‘Bama, Rol Tide!” before boarding, which is why the University of Alabama donated 350 t-shirts to the submarine crew.

“Both Alabama Blue and Gold crews sincerely appreciate The University of Alabama’s generosity and the continued support of our sailors, the Navy, and all of our men and women in uniform,” Reinhardt said at the December ceremony. “The t-shirts will be worn with pride. Roll Tide!”


2. Mary’s Son Jim Beau Was Born With a Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia & His Left Lung Was Smaller Than it Should Have Been

In July 2011, the University of Florida Health Post reported that Mary and Paul’s son Jim Beau Reinhardt, was diagnosed with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia during the 34th week of gestation.

When he was born, Jim Beau was missing half of his left diaphragm, forcing many of his vital organs to push his heart to the right side of his chest. That crowded his lungs, so his left lung is half the since it should be. His condition would have been a death sentence several years ago, but treatments have made it possible to overcome.

Jim Beau was also born with tetralogy of Fallot, which allows blood with low oxygen levels to move throughout the body. Because of these two conditions, he had two major surgeries within a year of being born.

“There are always some long-term health concerns with CDH babies, just in terms of their development,” Paul told UF Health. “He’s probably a little bit behind, but probably no different than any other CDH baby.”


3. Sam Sessions & His Wife Angela Have 4 Children

During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in February 2016, Sessions announced the birth of his 10th grandchild, Nicholas Montgomery Sessions. Nicholas is the fourth child of Sam Sessions and his wife, Angela.

Nicholas was born weighing 7 pounds, 12 ounces.


4. Sam Sessions Followed His Father’s Footsteps Into Law & Is a Lawyer in Birmingham

Sam Sessions followed his father into law, attending the University of Alabama School of Law from 2007 to 2010. He also has a B.A. in political science from Auburn University, according to his LinkedIn page.

From 2005 to 2007, Sam Sessions worked as a compliance officer at Morgan Keegan. After earning his J.D., he was hired by Wallace, Jordan, Ratliff & Brandt LLC in Birmingham.

According to his LinkedIn page, Sam Sessions focuses on “areas of construction law, agricultural and food law, landlord/tenant law, insurance law, and general civil litigation.”


5. Ruth & John Walk Welcomed Twin Daughters in 2014

According to the Ashland Place United Methodist Church newsletter for August 21, 2014, Ruth and her husband, John Walk, welcomed twin daughters that month – Janna Turner Walk and Phoebe Montgomery Walk. The couple are also parents to daughters Gracie and Hannah. Their twins were born on August 18 and weighed 6 pounds each.

In total, Sessions has 10 grandchildren – Jane Ritchie, Alexa, Gracie, Sophia, Hannah, Joanna, Phoebe, Jim Beau, Lewis, and Nicholas.

My only reservation about Sessions taking the post as Attorney General is that the Senate will lose its most diligently-honest member.

Real Americans have spoken. We hated paying for Obamacare. ($500 a month for what, exactly? My healthcare covers nothing!) We hated seeing our hard earned tax dollars pay for illegals, welfare leeches, and Muslim refugees. (They should be used on a border wall and new infrastructure!)

The govt breaks everything it touches, which is why we need to let the free market do its job. My auto insurance is just 25 bucks a month from Insurance Panda. My internet is just $30/month from ATT. Capitalism works!

Go Trump!

and the biggest is he won’t be a corrupt black racist black panther like eric holder or a corrupt black nyc racist “deal maker” with clinton loretta lynch.
Hopefully the AG will once again represent the US constitution and bill of rights rather than using race based hatred and persecute whites.

You brought up great points–the last two AGs were black and corrupt to the core. They also focused almost exclusively on targeting whites and the police.
These should show any thinking person that they indeed represent the person and his/her/its beliefs that appointed them–obama.
Soon, the ‘lost years’ of obama, filled with racial division and racial strife, endless corruption and nepotism will be over. America’s long nightmare will soon be over when the racist obama and his racist cronies finally……just…..slither away. Their bank accounts are full and their friends “organizations” are flush with taxpayer cash. Now they need to go.

You demons can’t be serious calling blacks racist? You’re truly of your father the devil, a liar and a murderer from the beginning. The white man has killed more people of color than your own white population.
