Tweet of the Day: Romney has another grandbaby

(CNN) - While the world's eye was on the royal baby Monday, plenty of other children came into the world, including Mitt Romney's latest grandchild–also a boy. "#22," he notes in his tweet.

In a nod to Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, Romney said his family is also "royally blessed."

The new Romney baby belongs to Romney's son, Josh, and his wife Jen. In February, Craig Romney and his wife, Mary, had twins.

Romney has five sons.

    To Malory Archer:; You just had to push your politics inti this article. Why can't there be a story that doesn't go off on a weird tangent.
    Mr. Romney and family: Congratulations, while I may disagree with your political positions, I want to present my best feelings to your family, from one grandfather to another.

    I still think people should have to file for a reproductive license, and noone should be allowed more than two. Period.
    Hate to break it to you but if you learned anything in school you would know that it takes 2.3 children per couple to simply keep the population what it is (this was an exercise in my statistics course)!!!! If everyone only had 2, the human race would go extinct at some point in the future!

    From the side that says news is too negative, I guess I couldn't fault CNN for posting something positive. Even though it is just a tweet. Congrats to the Romneys – I look forward to having kids of my own one day.

    "life isn't fair I can't success which collecting my welfare check crowd" What does this even mean? I can't success? Maybe he meant to say "I can't succeed." Totally agree, but then he goes on to say "which collecting my welfare check," which makes no sense at all. I guess he gets a welfare check because of his aphasia?

    You know exactly what I was saying, a couple typos big deal.......

    To Family Values:
    As I have said before, does everything have to revolve around peoples political agenda? Can there not be an article in which people blame Obama, Bush, or whoever? Personally I thin it's all Nixon's faul, or maybe Truman's.

    This grosses me out. If we all procreated at the rate of this family...ick! I find it disrespectful to planet to crank out babies like they are jelly beans. Hey, I find it disrespectful to the babies that are already here, to keep cranking out more. It is like the ones they have already are not "enough". Stop it already. Love the babies you have!

    You must have a lonely and sad life if 4 children per family is too much......Romney has 5 boys and each as 4 or 5 to make 22. I feel sorry for you. I come from a family of 7 kids and love every minute of it!!! Family dinners are a blast as are family trips etc!

    There is no such thing as a 'tweet pf the day,' they are all self-serving, narcissistic cries for attention.
