The newest son of Slovak President Andrej Kiska, 54, has been named Martin, the TASR newswire wrote. The president revealed the news on his Facebook profile.

“There’s no more beautiful experience than the birth of a child,” Kiska wrote. “Little Martin weighs 3,160 grams and is 49 centimetres long. He’s awesome, beautiful and cute,” wrote Kiska.

The president announced in April that he and his wife were expecting a baby, who was supposed to be born in August.

Kiska, who divorced his first wife Maria, 56, after 18 years of marriage, has two children from that relationship: Andrej, age 31, and Natália, age 26. He also has two other children with his current wife Martina, 42: Veronika, age 12, and Viktor, age 9.
