Photos tweeted by Trudeau's official photographer showed the Prime Minister wearing a white stetson and holding little Justin-Trudeau Adam Bilal at the rodeo and festival in Alberta. Their two older children, four-year-old Naya and three-year-old Nael, came with them.

The family chose to name their newborn after the prime minister as a thank you gesture to their adopted country.

According to a report in CBC News, on meeting the prime minister baby Trudeau's mother said, "It was actually very good, it was wonderful".

Ms Hammoud told CBC it was an awesome experience to meet the man who inspired their son's name and who made their new life possible.

The Secretary of State was supposed to send the voter commission the data Friday, but that's been put on hold after a series of lawsuits were filed.

In Ontario in February, another Syrian couple named their newborn Justin in tribute to the prime minister.

Over 40,000 Syrian refugees have been resettled in Canada - the commitment to bringing them to Canada was one of Trudeau's first actions after winning the federal election.

'I was a little bit shocked... when he says that, I smile a little bit, a small smile, then I say, "yes, there is no problem, it will be like a small thank you for Justin Trudeau"'. "In Syria, we name the boys like the parents, like my father's name or my husband's father's name, but now it's by appreciation for Justin Trudeau, we name him like this".

Their smallest family member, Justin-Trudeau Adam Bilal, was born in May at a healthy seven-and-a-half pounds.
