Who is Amy Coney Barrett? Amy Coney Barrett is married to fellow Notre Dame Law graduate Jesse M. Barrett.
Her husband was a former federal prosecutor and assistant United States attorney in the Northern District of Indiana.
Jesse is currently a partner at SouthBank Legal in South Bend, Indiana.
According to his website, he specializes in commercial litigation, internal investigations, and the defense of white collar crime.
The couple lives in South Bend.
How many children do they have?
Amy Coney Barrett and her husband have seven children, ranging in age from eight to 19.
In order of age, they are Emma (19), Vivian (16), Tess (16), John Peter (13), Liam (11), Juliet (9) and Benjamin (8).
Two were adopted from Haiti and one child has Down syndrome and special needs.
Jesse Barrett spoke to a court commission in 2017 about his children and said, “Emma is 16. The apple of the first eye”.
Vivian is 13. Vivian is our miracle. Vivian joined our family … She was born in Haiti.
She came home when she was 14 months old, and she weighed 11 pounds and was so weak that she was told she might never walk or speak normally.
Today Vivian is a track star, and I assure you she has no trouble talking.
Tess, who sits next to Vivian, is also 13 years old. Both in 8th grade. She is one of the most compassionate and determined people I know.
John Peter is 10. He was born in Haiti. He joined our family in 2010 when he was three years old after the devastating earthquake.
Liam is eight. Typically curious 8 year old. And Juliet is our feisty 6 year old.
“Benjamin, our youngest, is five. He has special needs. That poses unique challenges for all of us.
“But I think all you need to know about Benjamin’s place in the family is summed up by the fact that the other kids unreservedly identify him as their favorite sibling.”
Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who is reportedly part of the People of Praise group, has replaced Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the United States Supreme Court.
What is People of Praise?
People of Praise is a small, close-knit Christian group.
The Barretts and their families are said to be members of the group for life.
Group members swear a lifelong oath of loyalty, proclaimed a covenant, to each other, and are assigned and responsible to a personal adviser, called a “head” for men and a “maid” for women, the New York Times reports.
These advisers are said to provide direction on important decisions, including who to date or get married, where to live, whether to take a job or buy a home, and how to raise children.
The group is also said to teach that husbands are the heads of their wives and should take over authority over the family.
Founded in 1971, the community “grew out of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement that began in the late 1960s and adopted Pentecostal practices such as speaking in tongues, belief in prophecy and divine healing,” NYT reports.
Amy Coney Barret, an American attorney and lawyer who serves as a circuit judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. She is the first and only woman to occupy a seat in Indiana on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. She is also a professor of law at Notre Dame Law School, where she taught civil procedure, constitutional law, and legal interpretation.
On September 26, 2020, she was nominated by President Donald Trump to replace late Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She has been on the list of potential nominees of President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court since 2017. She was reportedly one of three finalists – and the only woman – to be considered by Trump as Kennedy’s successor.
Amy Barret Second Amendment
Barrett has argued that while the government has a legitimate interest in denying gun ownership to criminals convicted of violent crimes, there is no evidence that denying guns to non-violent criminals promotes this interest. This was after plaintiffs of postal fraud and the majority convicted of the criminal expropriation laws as “essentially related to a major government interest in preventing gun violence.” Barrett argued that the law violated the Second Amendment.

Emma is 16. The apple of the first eye. Vivian, right next to Emma, is 13. Vivian is our miracle. Vivian joined our family … She was born in Haiti. She came home when she was 14 months old, and she weighed 11 pounds and she was so weak she was told she might never walk or speak normally. Today Vivian is a track star, and I assure you she has no trouble speaking. Tess, who sits next to Vivian, is also 13 years old, both in grade 8.

Our four children are at home with friends and intrepid babysitters. John Peter is 10. He was born in Haiti. He joined our family in 2010 when he was three years old after the devastating earthquake.
Liam is eight. Typically inquisitive 8 year old. And Juliet is our spunky 6 year old. Benjamin, our youngest, is five. He has special needs. This poses unique challenges for all of us.
