Kieren Romney: Has Dark Skin, Name Means “Black”

Mitt Romney has a new adopted grandchild and that baby has a very descriptive name. The new baby, son of Ben and Andelynne Romney, Mitt’s son and daughter-in-law, is named Kieren which is a derivative of Kieran, a Gaelic name that means “black”. The baby has dark skin and was born via a surrogate.

The birth of little Kieren made the 22nd grandbaby for Mitt and Anne Romney. Or did it? Earlier this week, Mitt said the same thing for his last grandchild. Romney’s son Josh and his wife Jen gave birth to a little boy this summer — born the same day as royal baby Prince George — prompting Mitt to send a proud tweet welcoming grandchild “#22″.

So which grandchild can claim spot #22? Politico found that Mitt and Ann Romney had grandkids No. 17 and No. 18 during the 2012 presidential election season, when their son Tagg and his wife Jennifer welcomed twins via surrogate. Then, early this year there arrived another set of twins, No. 19 and No. 20 in February, when son Craig’s wife Mary gave birth to twins.

So, by that count, little Kieren can proudly claim spot number 22 on the long list of Romney heirs, and in all fairness, you can’t blame poor Mitt. It’s 22 children! Most people probably would lose count. Let’s just wait and see if he can remember all of their birthdays!
