Jenna Bush Hager has named her newborn in honor of her famous grandfather, George HW Bush. Problem: It's a girl. Solution: Meet Poppy Louise Hager, who entered the world this morning at 7 pounds, 9 ounces in New York City, reports People. In a statement, the 33-year-old and husband Henry Hager explain that "Poppy" was the elder George Bush's nickname growing up. "We are proud to name her after a man we so adore." The middle name honors their grandmothers, Louise and Lewis. Poppy has a big sister, 2-year-old Mila. (Read more George HW Bush stories.)
