Donald Trump became a grandfather for the eighth time when his daughter Ivanka gave birth to a baby boy on Sunday. "Jared and I feel incredibly blessed to announce the arrival of Theodore James Kushner," she tweeted. The Guardian notes that other Twitter users didn't take long to point out that Trump may not be overjoyed by the choice of name, since Theodore is often shortened to "Ted," though GOP rival Ted Cruz's real name is Rafael Edward. Last week, Trump told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee that his daughter was about to have a "beautiful Jewish baby."

Cruz and Trump kept firing accusations at each other on Sunday, reports USA Today. Cruz—who blamed "Sleazy Donald" for a National Enquirer story accusing him of having multiple affairs—told Fox News Sunday that it is "frankly disgusting to see a candidate attacking the spouse of another," referring to Trump's targeting of Heidi Cruz. Trump, meanwhile, continued to blame Cruz for an anti-Trump super PAC's use of a racy photo of Melania Trump. When Trump—ordered by Cruz to "leave Heidi the hell alone"—was asked on ABC's This Week about his threat to "spill the beans" on Cruz's wife, he said, "There are things about Heidi that I don't want to talk about. You could look, but I don't want to talk about them." (Read more Donald Trump stories.)
