On Saturday, a former US VP, Mike Pence, and his wife, Karen Pence, tweeted the birth of their first grandchild. The proud grandparents shared pictures of their family’s new addition, a granddaughter named Avery Grace Pence.

The twitter post featured a photo that included Karen, her husband in a Camp David sweatshirt and the couple’s oldest son, Michael Pence, who is seen holding the newborn.

Mike Pence, is reportedly scheduled to speak at an event hosted by a Christian non-profit organisation in South Carolina next month, his first public remarks after leaving office.
