(CNN) – George W. Bush is going to be a grandfather.
The former president's daughter Jenna announced Wednesday she was "nervous and so excited" to be expecting her first child, due sometime in the spring of 2013.
"I'm a first-time mom, but it's something I've always wanted. I'm a teacher and I love kids," Jenna Bush Hager, 31, said on NBC's "Today Show," where she serves as a contributor.
She appeared on the show with her husband Henry Hager, whom she married in 2008 on her family's 1,600-acre ranch in Crawford, Texas. Hager said his wife would "instill wonderful values" on their new baby.
The former president, who phoned into the show along with his wife Laura, declared he was "fired up" about becoming a grandfather – but that he wasn't planning on changing any diapers in the near future.
"I'll be the guy in the Ford 250 driving around the ranch with the grandchild," George W. Bush said.
Laura Bush said she was "thrilled for Jenna and Henry and, of course, for George and me to have the grandchildren we've been really looking forward to."
In the months before Jenna's wedding four years ago, the first lady joked about potential names for their first grandchild
"George or Georgia ... Georgina. Georgette," she speculated.
And what will the new addition to the Bush clan call the former leader of the free world?
"Sir," the former president joked.

Why is this news?
The daughter of a war criminal and the worst president in US history got pregnant.
I'm sorry. Am I supposed to give a damn?
Why is everyone so hateful?never mind the politics,let's wish them luck
Welcome to the family Lair....
Thank you Namejsk-someone (you) is civilized...The rest of you "eat your hearts out..........
Congratulations, u both must protect ur pregnancy.
I just don't like the idea of the Bush genes moving into the future. This is not great news.
Why am I supposed to care?
So, the shrub's cutting is having a seedling.
Wow. How digusting the post here. Typical nasty liberal. Vile and rotten to the core.
There you go again, Democrats. Can always count on you to take the high road with civil and statesman like commentary.
I just don't see all the suppposed "hate" on here that the c[R]y-babies are talking about.
But I do wish someone could solve this mystery: how is it that G. Bush repeatedly screwed America, but it is his daughter who got preganant? That's a big red-state "Mission Accomplished" to all you slack-jaws!
Ah, another future President. Hope this one is a girl.
I didn' do it! Nope, it wasn't me!
Paternity test? No way!
I hope she can lay off the booze for 9 months.
Congratulations to the family!
Wow...vile little pathetic people on this site. I wish the Bush's well although I don't agree with all of their policies.
Awesome! Congrats Jenna. Love the way President Bush has handled all the criticism.....like a true gentleman. Saw him at the Ryder cup.....he's becoming a rock star!
I think you guys are rude, its not her or the childs fault what her father did . & if y'all are gunna be negative I think you should keep your remarks to yourself !
Jealous liberals. Your slip is always showing.
C'mon, folks, she's non-political. She's even married. Congrats. In 10 or 15 years the child will learn about his grandpa's doings.
Congrats to the Hagers as they begin this exciting new chapter in their lives. Best of luck for a healthy pregnancy, and here's hoping that Great Grandpa-to-be 41 recovers from his illness in order to see the newest addition to the family.
People be nice this has nothing to do with Bush being president I'm as blue as they come but I'm very happy for former President Bush and Laura and I hope his parents both stay healthy so they can enjoy there great grand son or daughter.
Now that is down to earth..past President and future grandfather... True American! F250 drivin around the grandson. I wish more had cajones like Grandpa (future). Congrats!
Lets see if Obama blames G. Bush for this
