The new arrival was born in New York City, weighing 7lbs 9oz.

“We are thrilled to announce the birth of our darling daughter,” the couple said in a statement.

“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 was fantastic throughout, and Mila can’t stop talking about her ‘baby sissy,’" Henry added.
