George W. Bush is a grandfather after his daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, welcomed a healthy baby girl on Thursday [August 13]. The good news was announced on Friday’s “Today Show.”
Ex US President's daughter gives birth to baby girl
Jenna Bush Hager named her daughter Poppy Louise Hager, in honor of her father and former president George Herbert Walker ‘Poppy’ Bush, a.k.a. Gampy.
Jenna - who's the younger of the fraternal twin daughters of the 43rd U.S. President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush - named her daughter Poppy Louise Hager, in honor of her father and former president.
Poppy came in at 7 pounds, 9 ounces, and measured 20.5 inches. And how does her name connect to her great-grandfather? Well, Bush’s childhood nickname was “Poppy!”
The little girl is now the second great-grandchild for the former president and wife Barbara Bush, and, of course, the second grandchild for George and Laura Bush. Bush Hager and husband Henry Hager are already the proud parents of Mila, 2.
The Hagers say in a statement, ''We are thrilled to announce the birth of our darling daughter. Poppy is named after Jenna’s grandfather, George Herbert Walker ‘Poppy’ Bush, a.k.a. Gampy. His nickname growing up was Poppy, and we are proud to name her after a man we so adore. Louise is in honor of our grandmothers’ middle names, Louise and Lewis. Mom and Poppy are healthy and well.”
