Amy Coney Barrett thanks her husband and calls their seven children her ...

President Donald nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Saturday afternoon.

Barrett, 48, a married mother to seven and a former clerk to the late Justice Antonin Scalia, said she was 'truly humbled' by the nomination. 

If confirmed Justice Barrett will make history as the first mother of school-age children to ever serve on the Supreme Court. 

Barrett took the time to introduce her husband and seven children, who were seated in the audience, joking that it mades sense that was nominating her to join a bench of nine justices.

'As it happens, I'm used to being in a group of nine: my family,' Barrett said.

'Our children obviously make our life very full. While I am a judge, I'm better known back home as a room parent, car pool driver and birthday party planner. When schools went remote last spring, I tried on another hat. Jesse and I became co-principals of the Barrett e-learning academy. And yes, the list of enrolled students was a very long one. Our children are my greatest joy, even though they deprive me of any reasonable amount of sleep,' she said.

She revealed how her marriage of 21 years to husband, Jesse, was the bedrock of their relationship to provide their children the best upbringing possible, but noted that her kids believe him to be the better cook.

'At the start of our marriage, I imagined that we would run our household as partners. As it has turned out, Jesse does far more than his share of the work. To my chagrin, I learned at dinner recently that my children consider him to be the better cook. For 21 years, Jesse has asked me every single morning what he can do for me that day. And though I almost always say, 'Nothing,' he still finds ways to take things off my plate. And that's not because he has a lot of free time. He has a busy law practice. It is because he is a superb and generous husband, and I am very fortunate,' Barrett said.

Barrett's strong Christian ideology made her a favorite of the right but her involvement in a religious group sometimes branded as a 'cult' is set to be harshly criticized.    

In 2017, her affiliation to the small, tightly knit Christian group called People of Praise caused concern while she was a nominee for a seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. 

The New York Times reported that the practices of the group would surprise even other Catholics with members of the group swearing a lifelong oath of loyalty, called a covenant, to one another.
