BOSTON (CBS) – U.S. Sen. John Kerry is now a grandfather.

Vanessa Kerry, the youngest of Kerry’s two daughters, gave birth to a baby boy named Alexander Kerry Nahed, according to Boston.com.

In a statement to WBZ-TV, the 68-year-old Kerry expressed his excitement.

“Senator Kerry feels excited and blessed, proud of Vanessa and Brian, and safe to say it was an Easter they’ll always cherish as a family,” said Kerry spokesperson Whitney Smith.

Vanessa Kerry, 35, is married to Brian Vala Nahed, a neurosurgeon at Mass. General Hospital.

Sen. Kerry already has step-grandchildren through his second wife, Teresa Heinz-Kerry, the report said.
