Governor Patrick now a grandfather

He is a governor, former corporate executive, and onetime federal prosecutor.

Now, Deval Patrick can add another title to his resume: grandfather.

The governor’s office announced today that Patrick’s eldest daughter, Sarah Baker Patrick Morgese, and her husband, Marco Morgese, welcomed a baby boy this morning. Gianluca Noah Patrick Morgese arrived two months early, weighing 2 pounds 8 ounces. He was born in San Francisco.

“Mother and son are well,” Patrick’s office said. “Poppy and Nonna (aka the governor and the first lady) are over the moon.”

Sarah Patrick married Marco Morgese, a former Italian soldier, in September 2011 at a small ceremony that was officiated by the governor at his “Sweet P Farm’’ in Richmond.

While campaigning for reelection in 2010, Patrick playfully referred to his daughter’s then-suitor as “Marco, the Italian surfer.’’ The governor and his wife, Diane, have a younger daughter, Katherine, who has been active in the gay rights movement and on her father’s campaigns.
