The last president to have a child in the White House was President John F. Kennedy. His wife gave birth to a premature child named Patrick on Aug. 23, 1956, but he only lived for two days.

The only president to have a healthy child while occupying the oval office was President Grover Cleveland. Frances Cleveland gave birth to their daughter in the White House on Sept. 9, 1893. They named her Esther, and she remains the only child born in the White House to this day. The birth took place during Cleveland’s second term as President of the United States.
