Grisly-bearded CNN host Wolf Blitzer can add a new title to his resumé: grandfather. Late last week, his daughter Ilana gave birth to a son named Ruben Daniel Snider.
CNN announced the birth yesterday, sharing with it an adorable photo of Blitzer holding his new grandson. Blitzer’s colleague Jake Tapper shared a screenshot of the segment with congratulations on Twitter.

Other media personalities were quick to pick up on the news. “Remember,” wrote Buzzfeed Business editor Tom Gara, retweeting Tapper, “‘Wolf Blitzer’ is an ancient hereditary title, not a name. One day this child will become the Wolf Blitzer.”
We can only hope he’s right. Mazel Tov!
