The daughter of former U.S. president George W. Bush and her husband, Henry Hager, become first-time parents to a baby girl, Margaret Laura Hager.
George W. Bush and Laura Bush are officially grandparents after their daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, gave birth to a baby girl named Margaret Laura 'Mila' Hager. The former president of U.S. shared the happy news on his Facebook page.
"Laura and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our grandchild, Margaret Laura 'Mila' Hager. Mila, daughter of Jenna and Henry Hager, is named for her grandmothers," he wrote. "She was born last night [Saturday], April 13, at 8:43pm in New York City."
The new grandfather was very excited about the new addition to the family. He added, "We met our beautiful granddaughter today. Jenna and Mila are healthy. And our family is elated."
Jenna and husband Henry got married in 2008. The contributor of NBC's "Today", announced her pregnancy back in December during the show. "I'm a first-time mom, but it's something I've always wanted. I'm a teacher and I love kids," she said at that time. Her father jokingly added, "I'll be the guy in the Ford 250 driving around the ranch with the grandchild."
This is a big month for the Bush family. On April 25, the 43rd president will open his presidential library on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
