    Former President George W. Bush has become a grandfather. One of his twin daughters, Jenna Bush Hager, gave birth to her first child, a daughter, on Saturday night in New York City. 

    The former president announced the birth in a statement Sunday. The baby's name is Margaret Laura "Mila" Hager. The former president said the baby was named for her grandmothers. 

    Jenna Bush Hager is a contributing correspondent for NBC's "Today" show. She's married to Henry Hager. 

    Bush said, "We met our beautiful granddaughter today. Jenna and Mila are healthy. And our family is elated."

    The couple had kept the sex of their child a secret.  Jenna Bush, while speaking with Matt Lauer recently, said no matter what sex the child was, she was expecting a Rangers fan.
