The child arrived at 9:12 a.m. in New York City and weighed in at 7 lbs., 9 oz. and; she measured 20.5 inches in length.

"We are thrilled to announce the birth of our darling daughter,” the couple said in a statement, adding in more detail:

"Poppy is named after Jenna’s grandfather, George Herbert Walker “Poppy” Bush, a.k.a. Gampy. His nickname growing up was Poppy, and we are proud to name her after a man we so adore.

"Louise is in honor of our grandmothers’ middle names, Louise and Lewis. Mom and Poppy are healthy and well."

Jenna and Henry are also parents to a two-year old named Mia, who Henry also referenced in his statement:

"Jenna was fantastic throughout, and Mila can’t stop talking about her 'baby sissy.'"

We send our very best wishes to this newly-expanded family!
