NEW YORK (AP) -

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is a grandfather.

A spokeswoman for Bloomberg's daughter Georgina said she gave birth to a son around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. The child's name is Jasper Michael Brown Quintana. His father is Ramiro Quintana, a professional equestrian from Argentina.

Georgina Bloomberg is also a professional rider.

Bloomberg said he is "thrilled and just so proud of Georgina" and it's "an incredible way to start the new year."

In a speech earlier this month, he got emotional while discussing his hopes for the future of the city that will be the boy's home.

Bloomberg is leaving office at the end of the month.
