Lauren Boebert, a Republican representative from Colorado, shared exciting news for her family at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Women’s Breakfast event in Maryland. During her acceptance speech for the Mothers Influence Award, presented by the conservative group Moms for America, Boebert announced that she will become a grandmother in April.
“I’m going to tell you all for the first time in a public setting, that not only am I a mom of four boys, but come April, I will be a grandmother to a brand-new grandson,” she exclaimed.
Boebert and her husband, Jayson, are thrilled about the new addition to their family. She revealed that her son Tyler, who is 17 years old and the father of the baby, broke the news to her.
Boebert joked about her age and how her son reacted to her becoming a young grandmother. “Tyler, I’m going to be a 36-year-old grandmother,” she told him. “Well, didn’t you make Granny a 36-year old granny?” he replied. “I said yes, I did,” Boebert laughed. “He said, ‘Well then, It’s hereditary.”
Boebert keeps her belief against abortion
Boebert, who strongly opposes abortion and believes that life begins at conception, shared her biggest fear regarding the news. “It wasn’t what people were going to say, it wasn’t how they were going to react,” she said. “It was whether or not Tyler and his girlfriend would choose life.” Boebert and her family are proud of their decision to keep the baby.
During her campaign, Boebert spoke about her decision to drop out of high school to raise her son. “I was a brand-new mom, and I had to make hard decisions on successfully raising my child or getting to high school biology class,” she explained.
“And I chose to take care of my child.” Despite not following the typical education path, Boebert obtained her GED and was a great student.
