Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday announced the birth of his third grandchild, after his daughter Noa had a baby girl.

“Sara and I are happy that my love Noa had a girl, a sister to Shmuel and David and niece to Yair and Avner,” he wrote in Facebook post in Hebrew that garnered tens of thousands of likes and over a thousand comments.

“Mother and the daughter are doing well, and we are delighted at our growing family,” he added.

Noa Roth, 36, is the only child of Netanyahu and his first wife, Dr. Miriam Weizmann. Noa was born in 1978, shortly before her parents split.

Noa, now religious, is married to businessman Daniel Roth, and lives in the ultra-Orthodox neighborhood of Mea She’arim in Jerusalem.

In 2009, Noa gave birth to Netanyahu’s first grandchild; she had a second son in 2011.

Yair and Avner are the children of Netanyahu’s third and current wife, born Sara Ben-Arzi, whom he married in 1991.
