West Virginia first lady Cathy Justice has unveiled a doll in her likeness.

The doll introduced at a ceremony Wednesday will become part of the First Ladies of West Virginia Collection at the state Culture Center in Charleston.

The doll made by Washington D.C.-based artist Ping Lau features Justice in her inaugural ball gown.

Gov. Jim Justice sent out a tweet, saying he was ecstatic about the new doll.

“We got to unveil Cathy’s first lady doll today, and it knocked me off my feet!” the governor’s tweet said. “The good Lord has blessed me with a beautiful wife, and dollmaker Ping Lau did such a good job showing Cathy’s sweet heart. Florie Hirsch did a great job on the dress, too!”
