Vice President Gore is a now granddad - with a grandson born on the Fourth of July.
The Gores' daughter, Karenna Gore Schiff, and her husband had been expecting the baby in late June.
But with the instincts of a politician, Wyatt Gore Schiff delayed his inaugural appearance until Independence Day.
The vice president's office in Washington announced that Wyatt was born at 10:05 a.m. ET in New York City. He weighed in at six pounds, three ounces and measured 20 inches long.
The vice president and wife, Tipper, are in New York to be with the young couple and their new son.
