Laura and George W. Bush are officially grandparents. Their daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, gave birth to Margaret Laura ‘Mila’ Hager last night in New York.
The proud grandparents issued a statement this morning, saying that they were “elated” to meet Mila.
Laura and George W. said: “Laura and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our grandchild, Margaret Laura ‘Mila’ Hager… She was born last night, April 13, at 8:43pm in New York City. We met our beautiful granddaughter today. Jenna and Mila are healthy. And our family is elated.”
This is the first grandchild for Laura and George W. and the first child for Jenna and Henry Hager. The entire family has been looking forward to meeting Mila.
Jenna said: “I’m a first-time mom, but it’s something I’ve always wanted. I’m a teacher and I love kids.”
Mila arrives just in time to see the opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Center. The presidential center, which will house the George W. Bush library and museum, will be dedicated on April 25. The center will open to the public the following week on May 1.
