The Bush family announced the latest addition to their family on Friday, introducing Poppy Louise Hager to the world, accompanied by a beaming picture of delighted grandparents George W. and Laura Bush.
"Laura and I are overjoyed to meet our second grandchild today. Poppy Louise Hager entered the world yesterday in New York City, but we consider her an honorary Texan,” the Bushes announced in a statement.
Poppy Louise is the daughter of Jenna Bush Hager, her second child with husband Henry Hager.
The Bush statement said that Jenna and Henry chose the name Poppy as a tribute to former President George H.W. Bush, who was given the nickname as a child.
“We are grateful to God – and to Jenna and Henry – for this beautiful, healthy gift of life,” the statement said.
