Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colorado) has announced that she will be a grandmother at 36 next month when her 17-year-old son’s partner gives birth to a son.
Boebert revealed this family news at a women’s breakfast during the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland that ended last weekend, where she received a “mothers of influence” award. Boebert addressed women and men at the breakfast after accepting the award.
“I’m going to tell you all for the first time in a public setting that, not only am I a mother of four boys, but, come April, I will be a ‘Gigi’ to a brand new grandson,” she said.
Boebert’s son Tyler, when she talked with him about becoming a grandmother, pointed out that Boebert made her own mother a grandmother at 36 and he suggested it was “hereditary,” Boebert told those at the breakfast.
She then praised the values of “rural conservative communities” where teen pregnancy rates tend to be higher, she said, “because we value the preciousness of life.” Boebert has challenged abortion laws and told conference participants that she and her husband have been concerned about whether her son and his partner would “choose life…….And they did.
