Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen (D) is confirming a 24-year-old woman with whom he exchanged tweets on the night of the State of the Union address is, in fact, his daughter, whom he only learned about three years ago. Cohen, 63, is unmarried and has no other children.

Cohen sent -- then deleted -- tweets to a Houston woman, an aspiring model and actress -- including one that read, "Nice to know you were watchin SOTU Happy Valentines beautiful girl. Ilu."

On the Internet, "Ilu" typically stands for "I love you" or "I like you."
