Lauren's cousin Jenna Bush Hager also used the phrase, 'I love you more than tongue can tell,' when paying tribute to their late grandmother Barbara Bush, who passed away two days before Max's birth. 

In 41: A Portrait of My Father, George W. Bush biography of George H.W. Bush, the former president recalls how his three-year-old sister Robin was dying of leukemia in 1953 when she told their father, 'I love you more than tongue can tell.' 

Lauren's use of the phrase was undoubtedly a tribute to her grandparents, as the words have become a family mantra that represents the bond between a parent and child.

David, 46, announced Max's birth on his Instagram page on Friday, one day after they welcomed their second son. 

'We feel lucky and blessed to introduce our son Max Walker Lauren! He was born yesterday (April 19) at 5:33 am weighing 7lbs 8oz.

David suggested that they meet at the Met to look at some new pictures before attending a dinner nearby, but when Lauren arrived at the venue she was surprised that no one else was there but him. 

The art work he wanted her to see was actually a series of photographs from their seven years together. 

'I created our own exhibition of our life together,' David told Vogue in 2011. 'And I got down on my knee and proposed.

'Then we went outside and took a carriage ride with a clarinetist and a saxophonist following us.'

Instead of saying 'I do' in their home city of New York, the couple wed at the Lauren family's 17,000-acre Double RL ranch in Ridgway, Colorado, over Labor Day weekend in 2011. 

Four years later, in November 2015, the couple welcomed James.
