Jenna Bush Hager Gives Birth to a Baby Girl!
Jenna Bush Hager and her husband Henry welcomed a daughter to their family Saturday night.
"Both my girls are healthy and well," said new dad Henry Hager, who referred to himself as "the proud papa." Hager said his daughter arrived a little early but is a healthy 6 pounds, 15 ounces and measures 19 1/4 inches long.
The new baby's grandfather, former President George W. Bush, is equally as excited, saying that he and his family are "elated."
Bush said in a statement, “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. She was born last night, April 13, at 8:43 p.m. in New York City. We met our beautiful granddaughter today."
This is a first child for Jenna Bush Hager, and the first grandchild for former President Bush and his wife.
Jenna announced on the “Today Show” in December that she was expecting her first child. At the time, she said she was "nervous and so excited" about the pregnancy.
The former president, who phoned into the show along with his wife, Laura, declared he was "fired up" about becoming a grandfather but that he wasn't planning on changing any diapers in the near future.
"I'll be the guy in the Ford 250 driving around the ranch with the grandchild," he added.
