Representative Lauren Boebert revealed on Thursday that she became a grandmother at 36.
Boebert was appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox News Channel program and the host asked what was going on between her and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
The two MAGA darlings argued on the house floor with Greene calling Boebert a “little bitch,” according to The Daily Beastreporting that Greene confirmed.
“Sean, I didn’t put my life on hold and let my four boys and now my grandson come here and argue with people,” Boebert told Hannity – revealing her status as a grandmother. “I came here to legislate and be effective for Coloradans, Coloradans who are hurting from the politics of the Democrats. Marjorie is not my enemy. Joe Biden’s politics, the Democrats are my enemy that I fight in this moment.
In March, Boebert revealed that his 17-year-old son, Tyler, got his girlfriend pregnant and they were expecting a son.

“So I’m going to tell you all for the first time in public that not only am I a mom of four boys, but in April I’ll be the gigi of a brand new grandson. And Jason and I are so excited to welcome this new life into our family,’ Boebert said during a Moms for America Event.
Boebert told the crowd that there was “something special about rural conservative communities” – because fewer pregnant teens abort their fetuses compared to those living in cities, studies have found.
“Rates of teenage mothers are higher in conservative rural areas because they understand the preciousness of a life that is about to be born,” said anti-abortionist Boebert.
A 2019 study from the American Journal of Public Health suggested that teenage birth rates are higher in rural areas due to “local conditions that limit options for managing unwanted pregnancies.”
Since the Supreme Court’s June Dobbs decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a number of red state legislatures have passed increasingly restrictive abortion laws.
However, Boebert’s home state of Colorado remains one of six states where abortion is still legal at all stages of pregnancy.
Besides, Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that teenage mothers are much less likely to complete high school than those without children.
Boebert told Hannity that she didn’t ‘let my four boys and my now grandson come here and argue with people’ when asked about a dispute between the Colorado Republican and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Only about 50% of teenage mothers graduate from high school by age 22, compared to 90% of women who do not give birth during their teenage years.
Boebert was a teenage mother herself and dropped out of high school in her senior year in 2004 when she became pregnant with Tyler, her oldest child.
She had three other sons, including the 2009 birth of Kaydon, which occurred in the front seat of her husband’s van, and make local news.
She completed her GED before being elected to Congress in 2020.
The Colorado Republican joked about being a young mother in her speech to Moms for America.
‘Now, all of you who have young children who give birth, there are questions that arise. There is a certain fear that arises,” she said.
“Now my son, when I approached him and said, ‘Tyler, I’m going to be a 36-year-old grandma. He said, “Well, didn’t you make granny a 36-year-old granny,” Boebert told the crowd. “I said, ‘Yes, I did. He said, “Well, it’s hereditary.”
“Nice try, mate,” she added.
Boebert is anti-abortion and also rejects the teaching of sex education in schools.
During a March speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference, she warned that some schools “teach worse than just gender ideology.”
“They have comprehensive sex education,” she said. “They teach kids how to have and enjoy sex, and even gay sex, how to have fun.”
“It’s not something elementary school students should learn, not any public school student,” she continued. “Those are the things we need to look for and reduce their funding,” Boebert added.
