Originally posted May 26th: The first grandchild of the late civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. was born yesterday, Sunday, May 25th, at Northside Hospital in Atlanta.  A spokesman said that new mom Arndrea Waters King and new baby Yolanda Renee King are both healthy.  Although no birth details have been released, Yolanda was named after an aunt — Martin Luther King Jr.’s eldest daughter, Yolanda — who died in May 2007. 

The pregnancy was announced in January;  Arndrea and Martin Luther King III, 50, were married in 2006.

What a healing balm for the remaining family members so soon after losing Mrs Coretta Scott King and sister Yolanda. He looks like a joyful father and I wish them all love and grace.
