Former first daughter Jenna Bush Hager welcomed a second child on Thursday, a girl named after Jenna’s grandfather, former President George H.W. Bush. But instead of a variation on “George,” the new baby’s name is “Poppy”—H.W.’s nickname as a child.

Poppy Louise Hager weighed in at 7 lbs., 9 oz., and mother and child both appear happy and healthy. Jenna introduced her grandfather to his great-granddaughter via FaceTime, which she told the Today show was a very emotional experience.

Hager, a special correspondent for the morning program and an editor-at-large for Southern Living (a Time Inc. publication), shared a photo of herself and husband Henry with baby Poppy on Instagram on Friday, commenting, “We are in LOVE.”
