Jenna Bush Hager Welcomes Baby Girl With A Long, Lovely Name!

PUBLISHED ON 04/15/2013

The former first daughter, Jenna Bush Hager , and her husband, Henry Hager , became proud parents to a darling little girl with a long, historical and very family-oriented name on Saturday, April 13th in New York City!

The Today show correspondent and her husband chose Margaret Laura "Mila" Hager for their sweet new addition and in case you were wondering, baby's girl's name is every ounce as American as her family roots! Baby girl Hager was named after her grandmothers, and I've got to hand it to her: she's got some options when it comes to choosing which name she'll go by. I'm a little partial to Margaret for when she's an adult, but I'm pretty taken with Mila. It's unique, cute and a far cry from some other celebrity name picks. Not hard to pronounce, either. Survey says yes to Mila!

Little Miss Mila is also the first granddaughter for former President George W. Bush and grandpa — and grandma! — couldn't be more excited at the arrival of their granddaughter. The Prez said in a statement, "Laura and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our grandchild, Margaret Lauare 'Mila' Hager." He went on to say, "We met our beautiful granddaughter today. Jenna and Mila are healthy. And our family is elated."

Grandpa George hasn't exactly been mum on the topic of grandchildren, either. In 2010, he told AARP Magazine that he was, "a little disappointed it hasn't happened yet. But the more disappointment I show, the less likely it is things are going to happen on the time table I want." Geez! Talk about an impatient Pop! I'm sure the moment he first laid eyes on that sweet little girl, it was worth the two-year wait!

And here's the proof: they posed for this super sweet photo just hours after she was born and you can just see the excitement on grandpa's face:

Were your parents impatient when it came to grandchildren?
