Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s granddaughter Bella can’t contain her excitement as her grandmother votes for herself as speaker of the House.
USA TODAY

Nancy Pelosi is the new Speaker of the House, but her granddaughter Bella stole the show Thursday on the House floor.

As her grandmother was sworn in again – the only woman to have ever served as House speaker – Bella couldn’t hold her excitement in, and Twitter loved it.

She was spotted pumping her fists and clapping as the votes poured in for the California Democrat.

When it was Pelosi’s turn to vote for herself, she took Bella’s hand and the 9-year-old shouted “PELOSI” and jumped up and down.

As Pelosi took her oath of office, she invited all children to gather around her – and Bella was front and center.

One of Nancy Pelosi’s granddaughter, I believe, keeps running up to her and dancing. When someone near her voted for her she hugged her.

I am very emotional right now.
