Mayor releases picture of new grandson

The mayor's daughter, Nora Daley Conroy, gave birth to her third child Friday. In one photo, the mayor and his wife, Maggie, were doting over little Kevin Conroy. Kevin weighs seven pounds, 12 ounces.

Young Kevin is named after the mayor and Maggie's own son, who died of spina bifida in 1981 at the age of 2.

The mayor talked about that at a news conference Tuesday.

"The death of child always stays with you. It doesn't matter what age a child is. As a parent, it always stays with you. So that's really something special, naming her third child Kevin," Mayor Daley said.

The mayor added that both mother and son are healthy and doing well.
