Rep. Lauren Boebert is a Republican, and she is going to be a grandmother.
The Colorado congresswoman told the news at the Women’s Breakfast event at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland on Saturday.
Moms for America gave her the Mothers Influence Award, and in her speech, she said, “I’m going to tell you all for the first time in public that I’m not only the mother of four boys, but I’m also going to be the grandmother of a brand-new grandson in April.”
She also said that she and her husband Jayon are “so excited to welcome this new life.” She told how she reacted when her 17-year-old son Tyler, the father of the baby, told her the news.
“Now, if you have young children who are giving birth, you probably have some questions and fears,” she said. “When I told my son Tyler that I was going to be a 36-year-old grandmother, he said, ‘Well, you made Granny a 36-year-old grandmother, didn’t you?'”
“I said yes, I did,” she said. “He said, ‘Well, then, it’s in the family,'” she said.
Boebert ended her speech by saying that one of her biggest worries wasn’t what “people were going to say,” but whether her son and his girlfriend, who was pregnant, “would choose life.”
She said, “And they did.” “We’re so happy for them.”
During her campaign for Congress, she spoke out against abortion, saying that “life begins at conception” and that she will “always defend life.”
In a 2020 interview with The Durango Herald, she went into more detail about these beliefs and talked about how they affected her choice to quit high school to raise Tyler.

She said, “I was a brand-new mom, and I had to choose between raising my child well and going to high school biology class.” “And I decided to look after my child.”
She also said, “I didn’t go through the usual schooling, but I did get my GED.” “I did well in school. I had great grades. I loved being there, but I was just starting a family and had other things to do.
