Justin Trudeau Baby: Hadrien Joins Liberal Leader's Growing Family (PHOTOS)

His birth date also has another significance to the Trudeau family.

Justin Trudeau and wife Sophie Grégoire welcomed their third child, son Hadrien, on February 28.

The date has special meaning to the Trudeau family: On the same day 30 years ago, Pierre Elliott Trudeau took his "walk in the snow" which led to his decision to step down as Prime Minister. The first people Trudeau told about his decision were his sons -- Justin, the eldest, was 12 at the time.

Click through the photos below for a look back at the political childhoods of two generations of Trudeau children.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this post misspelled Hadrien's first name.
