(WASHINGTON) — The newest member of an American political dynasty was born on Monday — the same day that the whole world was fixated on the birth of the royal baby.
On Tuesday, former presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced the birth of his 22nd grandchild via Twitter, joking about the baby’s now-famous birth date.

Like his British counterpart, whose birth facts were displayed on a golden easel, the newest member of the Romney clan is also a boy, however Romney did not announce a name.
The baby’s father, Josh Romney, contemplated running for a House seat in 2008 and lieutenant governor of Utah in 2009. On the campaign trail, Josh is best known for driving the ‘Mitt Mobile’ through all 99 counties in Iowa during the 2008 primary campaign.
