Lauren Boebert, a US Congresswoman, has announced that her 17-year-old son Tyler and his girlfriend are expecting a child next month.
Boebert, 36, made the announcement while speaking at an event held by the conservative group Mothers for America on Tuesday, March 7, when she praised the values of her rural countrymen.
“I’m going to tell you all for the first time in a public setting, that not only am I a mom of four boys, but come April, I will be a gigi to a brand new grandson,” Boebert said and added that she and her husband Jayson “are so excited to welcome this new life into our family.”
The Republican congresswoman went on to praise “rural conservative communities,” saying they have a higher rate of teen moms who refuse abortions compared to their big city counterparts.
There’s something special about rural conservative communities,” Boebert said.
“They value life.
“Teen moms’ rates are higher in rural conservative areas because they understand the preciousness of a life that it’s about to be born,” she added.
Colorado, Boebert’s home state, is one of just six states where abortion is permitted at all stages of pregnancy.
Boebert was a teen mom who dropped out of high school in her final year due to Tyler’s pregnancy.
Before being elected to Congress in 2020, she earned her GED.
