On this bittersweet anniversary, the Kennedy family has reason to celebrate: The first photos of its youngest member have emerged, 50 years after the death of President John F. Kennedy.

Nora Kara Kennedy was born on Nov. 19, joining the ranks of a family that includes one president, three senators, four members of the House of Representatives and one ex-boyfriend of Taylor Swift. Her father, former U.S. representative Patrick Kennedy, is the son of longtime senator Ted Kennedy, which (if you’re keeping track) makes her the great-niece of JFK.

The world got its first look at baby Nora on Thursday, as her parents held a press conference at the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in New Jersey.

“As we celebrate the birth of our daughter alongside our wonderful families, we honor the memories of those never far from our thoughts and turn a bittersweet time a whole lot sweeter,” Patrick Kennedy told the assembled media.
