On February 9, 2023, Peter took to Instagram to announce his new baby. He captioned the picture saying, "Meet Bridget Blake Doocy! Asked [Joe Biden] for tips about being a new dad, at the WH holiday reception. His advice: “Hold her tight.” Will do!"

Peter also talked to People right before Father's Day about being a parent.

He told them, "Don’t know how any parent raised a child without Google, and the ability to quickly look up any possible question about a baby. Or, without Instagram, for that matter... For the last 14 years, I’ve constantly leaned on my dad for advice about the right way to approach my job. Now, I’m always leaning on him and my mom about raising a kid...I had no idea how stress-free the work part is, by comparison!”
