Speaker John A. Boehner is famous for being a softie when it comes to “the children,” so we can’t imagine what kind of tears of joy he shed at the birth of his first grandchild, whose arrival was announced to the world on Thursday afternoon via Twitter:
It’s a boy! Very excited to announce the birth of my first grandchild, Alistair Lane. Both baby & mother are doing well.
