What does “They also have daughter Avalon, 2 on Saturday” mean? That doesn’t sound right for some reason.

Okay, maybe I’m being pedantic, but shouldn’t the title read “Australia’s former prime minister Paul Keating becomes a granddad *again*”? After all, he already has a granddaughter, so he’s already a granddad.

Maybe I’m being excessively picky about this, but it almost feels like it’s saying that he wasn’t a REAL granddad until he had a grandson.
