"On Facebook, Noem talked about the significance of her first grandchild’s name. Adeline is named after Noem’s grandmother, Arlys Addeline Arnold. She recently passed away. Noem’s granddaughter’s middle name, West, is a nod to where she was born. Kassidy and Kyle grew up in Eastern South Dakota, but since Adeline was born to the west in Pierre, she was given that middle name" -Dakota News Now.

Noem mentioned that she will be called Mema instead of grandma or grandmother as this is what her son-in-law Kyle called her.

When Adeline was born she weighed 7 lbs. 14 oz. and was measured at 20 inches.

Congratulations to the new parents and Kristi's family on their newest family member.
