(Newser) – Get ready for the next member of the Bush dynasty. Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of George W. Bush, has announced that she is pregnant with her first child and due in the spring, reports CNN. She made the announcement with husband Henry Hager on the Today show, where she is a contributor, saying that she's "nervous and so excited" because "it's something I've always wanted. I'm a teacher and I love kids."

Soon-to-be-Grandpa and Grandma Bush called in to the show, with the former president saying he's "fired up" about his first grandchild, and cracking that the kid will call him "sir." "I'll be the guy in the Ford 250 driving around the ranch with the grandchild," he added. As for names, Laura Bush had some ideas four years ago on the occasion of Jenna's wedding: "George or Georgia ... Georgina. Georgette."

The child is not responsible for the sins of the father, grandfather or great-grandfather. If the child commits the same sins when he/she is a grown adult however, all bets are off.
