DALLAS (AP) — Former President George W. Bush has become a grandfather.

His twin daughter Jenna Bush Hager (HAY'-gur) 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" (MEE'-luh) Hager.

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

The former president says the baby was named for her grandmothers.

He says he and former first lady Laura Bush met their "beautiful granddaughter today," adding, "Jenna and Mila are healthy. And our family is elated."

This is a big month for the family. The George W. Bush Presidential Center will be dedicated April 25 on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
