DALLAS (AP) – Former President George W. Bush has spoken with pride about becoming a grandpa and his delight at getting acquainted with his newborn granddaughter.
New mom Jenna Bush Hager (HAY’-gur) was smiling as tears ran down her face Thursday during the Dallas dedication ceremony for her father’s presidential center. She was seated in the audience with her husband, Henry Hager, as Bush described spending time with his first grandchild.
Margaret Laura “Mila” (MEE’-luh) Hager was born April 13 in New York City. New mom Jenna Bush Hager is a contributing correspondent for NBC’s “Today” show.
The former president says the baby was named for both grandmothers.
