Iraq war veteran Track Palin and bride Britta Hanson welcomed a baby girl over the weekend, according to Us Weekly.

The exciting birth news comes three months after the couple’s wedding, which took place in Hatcher Pass, Alaska. Journalist Joe McGinniss, a one-time neighbor of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and her family, reported Monday that the former vice presidential candidate became a grandma again. According to McGinniss, the child has been named Kyla Grace Palin.

“I don’t yet know when Sarah will sell the first pictures to PEOPLE,” McGinniss wrote.

Last month, Gawker reported that Hanson had recently published a Facebook photo of herself with an apparently pregnant stomach and surrounded by gift bags and diapers. Beneath the snapshot, Hanson’s Facebook friends had posted congratulatory messages to the presumed mom-to-be. The gossip news outlet also discovered what appeared to be Hanson’s online baby registry, which stated that the couple had a female infant on the way. (Sarah Palin’s son Track expecting child)

Track, the 22-year-old eldest child of Sarah, is an Army Reservist and his spouse Hanson studies nursing at the University of Alaska. The newlyweds were high school sweethearts.

When Track and Hanson tied the knot in May, the Hansons and Palins expressed immense happiness over the union.

“Our families couldn’t be happier,” the bride and groom’s families said in a joint statement. “These are two hard working, humble, active, studious young adults who grew up together. We’re tickled that after two decades of friendship we proudly witnessed their marriage, knowing their new life together will be blessed.”
