“In the Old Country, they would have called me ‘zayde,’ but here I want to be called ‘grandpa,’” the Democratic Senate minority leader said.
His eldest daughter, Jessica, and her husband, Michael Shapiro, recently welcomed Noah Melvin Schumer-Shapiro into the world.
Baby Noah’s middle name comes from his great-grandfather, Melvin Weinshall, who was a New York City cab driver.
So proud of my daughter Jessica and her husband Michael for welcoming a baby boy. Schumers & Shapiros are all 1st time grandparents!
