“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,” Bush said in a statement posted to his Facebook page.

“We met our beautiful granddaughter today. Jenna and Mila are healthy. And our family is elated.”

Mila was born at 8:43 p.m. on Saturday in New York City.

The good news comes just a few weeks before a big moment for the 43rd president. On April 25, Bush will dedicate the George W. Bush Presidential Center, home to his presidential library and the George W. Bush Institute, on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.
