Gov. Bryant, wife become grandparents



JACKSON (AP) – Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant and his wife, Deborah, have become first-time grandparents and he says the experience is “pure joy.”

The governor says Henry Stephen Snell was born in a Jackson-area hospital Monday night. He’s 19 inches long and weighs 7 pounds, 10 ounces.

Henry is the son of the Bryants’ daughter, Katie, and her husband, Stephen.

The governor posted baby pictures on Facebook, saying it seems like not so long ago that he was holding his daughter for the first time. She has been an attorney since 2010.
