Gregoire's office told The Associated Press on Friday that Audrey Christine Lindsay was born Thursday at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle. She's Gregoire's first grandchild and the first child for 33-year-old Courtney Gregoire and her husband, Scott Lindsay. The couple was married at the governor's mansion in 2008.
They moved back to the state from Washington, D.C. earlier this year so that Courtney Gregoire could take a job at Microsoft. She previously had been deputy chief of staff for the U.S. Department of Commerce.
Gov. Gregoire said she and her husband, Mike, are "thrilled to welcome Audrey to the world." Gov. Gregoire has another daughter, 27-year-old Michelle, who is currently a law student at the University of Washington.
