36-Year-Old Lauren Boebert Announces She Is Going to Be a Grandmother


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Rep. Lauren Boebert and her husband had the first of their four children when she was in her late teens, and now it appears as though that family history is repeating itself.

During an event celebrating mothers last weekend at the Conservative Political Action Conference, the Colorado Republican announced that, at the age of 36, she’s about to become a grandmother, according to the Western Journal.

“I’m a mom of four boys,” Boebert said during her speech. “And I’ve said many times, [husband] Jayson and I, we are raising our four boys to be men before liberals teach them to be women.”


After she got a round of applause for her remark, she then dropped the big life-changing news.

“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 Jayson and I are so excited to welcome this new life into our family. Now, any of you who have young children, who are giving life, there are some questions that pop up. There’s some fear that arises.”

It’s her oldest son, Tyler, who is going to be a father, apparently.

“Now my son, when I approached him and told him, ‘Tyler, I’m going to be a 36-year-old grandmother,’ he said, ‘Well, didn’t you make granny a 36-year-old granny?’” Boebert said. “I said, ‘Yes, I did.’ He said, ‘Well then, it’s hereditary.’ Nice try, buddy,” she said.

Boebert recently won an extremely tight reelection race that some observers said she should have won by a wider margin. Afterward, she refused to back Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) for speaker, but eventually came around and appeared to have been rewarded with a coveted seat on the House Oversight Committee.

“The appointment gives the outspoken Colorado Republican outsized influence on looming investigations into three-letter agencies like the CIA and FBI that McCarthy—whom Boebert vocally opposed for the speaker post—had hinted at in the lead-up to Republicans taking the majority this past November,” Newsweek reported regarding the development.


The lawmaker took to Twitter to announce the appointment.

“I’m honored to be joining the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability. Chairman @RepJamesComer, let’s get to work!” she wrote, tagging Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), who will lead the committee.

Before she flipped, however, she had a tense interview on Fox News with veteran host Sean Hannity, where she appeared to dodge Hannity’s questions repeatedly.


The focus of the interview began with Boebert’s refusal, along with 19 other GOP members of the Freedom Caucus, to support McCarthy through six ballots, something that hasn’t happened since the mid-1850s.

Hannity introduced the segment this way:

She says negotiations with McCarthy have been ongoing since the summer, but that her demands are not being taken seriously. Meanwhile, Kevin McCarthy’s camp is now reportedly trying to determine which of the 20 votes against him are because of a policy disagreement versus a personal vendetta. Here now with reaction is Congresswoman Boebert. Congresswoman, let me — Townhall quoted you today saying, ‘President…’ — you said complimentary things about President Trump — ‘…needs to tell Kevin McCarthy that, ‘Sir, you do not have the votes, it’s time to withdraw.’’ Let me turn the tables, Congresswoman. Kevin McCarthy has 202, 203 votes. Your side has 20. So, if I’ll use your words and your methodology and your math, isn’t it time for you to pack it in and your side to pack it in considering he has over 200 and you have 20?

Boebert began by saying she “understood” his frustration before he immediately cut her off.

“I’m not frustrated. You didn’t answer my question,” he responded.


“And we’re hearing — we’re hearing from many people who are still voting with Kevin McCarthy…” Boebert said before Hannity interjected again.

“You’re not answering my question,” he said, as the back and forth continued.
