AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas land commissioner candidate George P. Bush has become a father.
Spokesman Trey Newton said Bush and his wife Amanda had their first child, a boy named Prescott Walker Bush, Monday afternoon.
Bush is son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and grandson of former President George H.W. Bush. Another former president, George W. Bush, is his uncle.
Newtown said the baby is a third generation Texan and joked that “George P. looks forward to his son carrying on his tradition . of playing baseball for the Rice Owls.”
A Spanish-speaking attorney and consultant based in Fort Worth, Bush is considered a rising star among conservative Hispanics.
Long active in politics, Bush announced in March he was running for land commissioner, which administers state-owned lands and mineral resources.
