Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) said she does not want to “nitpick what the Bible says is right and wrong” when asked about her son Tyler, who recently turned 18, expecting a child with his girlfriend.

Earlier this month, Boebert, 36, announced that she was anticipating becoming a grandmother in April while speaking at a conservative Moms for America event.

“Obviously, I’m a Christian, and there are standards that we like to uphold, but none of us do it perfectly,” Boebert said on conservative talk show The Rubin Report on Thursday. “We can nitpick what the Bible says is right and wrong, but I think just having that heart posture of wanting to serve God and do the right thing is so important.”

“Certainly, there are some beliefs that you’re like, wait, this isn’t exactly right and exactly what we have taught you,” the Colorado Republican explained. “But this is where we’re at, and we’re going to teach you about redemption and how to move forward.”

Boebert said she is “really proud” of her son and his girlfriend for choosing life.

“It wasn’t anything I had to browbeat them with,” Boebert shared. “Both of them were very excited and wanted to move forward and welcome this life into the world.”

Boebert has shared that she was a teenage mother herself, choosing to drop out of high school after she became pregnant. She said she later received her GED.
