The proud grandpa has been preparing for Jenna Bush's baby by painting some artwork to hang around her room. According to CBS News, Jenna Bush's baby will have a portrait of Jenna's cat, Bernadette, hung above her crib; a landscape featuring a "baby tree" from his Texas ranch; and a still life of the ranch's stone cross where the Hagers were married in 2008.

President Bush said he was "fired up" for his first grandchild.

"I'll be the guy in the Ford 250 driving around the ranch with the grandchild," he said. President Bush also released an official press statement regarding Jenna Bush's baby girl.

"Laura and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our grandchild, Margaret Laura 'Mila' Hager...She was born last night, April 13 at 8:43 p.m. in New York City. We met our beautiful granddaughter today. Jenna and Mila are healthy. And our family is elated," President Bush said in the statement. 

Margaret Laura 'Mila' Bush is named after Jenna and Henry's grandmothers, a family tradition for the Bush family who named Jenna and her twin sister Barbara after their grandmothers. Jenna Bush's baby will also be the second great-grandchild of former President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara; Jeb Bush Jr.'s wife Sandra gave birth in 2011 to Georgia Helena Walker Bush.
