“Former Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne Cheney, welcomed their seventh grandchild, Sarah Lynne Cheney, Wednesday, November 18, 2009.  She weighed 6 lbs., 14 oz and was born at 8:17 A.M. at Sibley Hospital in Washington,  D.C.  Her parents are the Cheney's daughter Mary and her partner, Heather Poe.”

Many congratulations to the Cheney family. And congratulations on the word "parents."
