The former First Family has welcomed their first grandchild.

Former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush confirmed the new addition Sunday on Facebook.

“Laura and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our grandchild, Margaret Laura ‘Mila’ Hager,” he writes. “Mila, daughter of Jenna and Henry Hager, is named for her grandmothers.”

The couple’s daughter arrived at 8:43 p.m. on Saturday, April 13 in New York City.

“Jenna and Mila are healthy. And our family is elated,” Bush writes.

Prior to welcoming her new addition, the Today contributor didn’t know the sex of her baby.

“I really love the relationship I have with my mother,” Hager, 31, previously told PEOPLE at her baby shower, “so to have a daughter would be special.”

However, there’s still no word on what the little one will call her grandparents.

“My grandfather and my father’s grandfather were both called Gampy, so maybe it will be Gampy,” she recently told PEOPLE, adding with a laugh, “but my father did also say he wanted to be called Jefe, which is chief in Spanish.”
