The daughter of President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo and First Lady Iriana, Kahiyang Ayu, gave birth to her second child at YPK Hospital in Menteng, Central Jakarta, Monday night, making the baby boy the fourth grandchild in the First Family.

"My wife gave birth to our second child. It’s a boy. I thank God he was born healthy," Kahiyang's husband, Bobby Nasution, said on Tuesday.

The baby, who was delivered through C-section, was born weighing 3.4 kilograms and measuring 49.5 centimeters. 

Bobby expressed his gratitude to the team of doctors. However, he has yet to announce the name of his second child.

The father said the baby would use Nasution, a Batak tribe name, as his last name.

“We have the name already but I’ll announce his last name first. It’s Nasution," Bobby said.

The baby is the little brother of Jokowi’s second granddaughter, 2-year-old Sedah Mirah.

Jokowi and Iriana also have a 4-year-old grandson, Jan Ethes Srinarendra, and 9-month-old La Lembah Manah from his eldest son Gibran Rakabuming Raka and wife Selvi Ananda.

Jokowi and Iriana reportedly visited YPK Hospital on Tuesday evening without making a statement to the press.
