As the Bush family commemorate the loss of an adorable member of their family, they find joy in welcoming the newest member.


Iconic first lady Barbara Bush's granddaughter, Lauren, and her husband, David, gave birth to their second baby, Max Walker Lauren, on April 19.

According to Liftable, the Bush family welcomed the newest member of the family, who was reported 7 pounds and 8 ounces at the time of his birth, into the world only two days after the sad demise of Barbara.

The close timing of these two significant events in the Bush family suggested some meaningful connection between the two happenings.

Barbara's son, Neil Bush, took to social media to share a wonderful photograph of him along with his mother and daughter, Lauren, highlighting the significance of the situation.


In his Facebook post, he wrote that he would always be thankful that he was allowed to say a 'proper goodbye' to his mother. He then addressed the fact that only two days later, his daughter had given birth to a beautiful baby boy.

'The circle of life. God is good,' Neil's Facebook post read.

Barbara passed away due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and congestive heart failure. It was reported that in days prior to her death, Barbara already had a feeling that 'her days were numbered,' so she had decided to stop her treatment.


When she passed away, she was amid her family members and the loved ones.

The source suggested that Lauren had always shared a special connection with Barbara growing up. The two were close and granddaughter should be happy that her son came into the world only days after the special lady's passing.

In the honor of her grandmother, Lauren posted a tribute on Instagram. Putting up a photograph of Barbara, Lauren wrote in her post that many things in her life were fostered in her by her grandmother including her 'love of reading, puzzles, and travel.'
