Mayor Michael Bloomberg received a surprise gift on a visit to a Queens firehouse on Christmas morning.

Firefighters of Engine 258/Ladder 115 in Long Island City decided to congratulate Bloomberg with a homemade mug on his latest achievement, becoming a grandfather.

Bloomberg's daughter Georgina gave birth to a baby boy yesterday.

"I don't know. We found out. We opened the paper. He had a grandson, so we said, ‘Let's make him a mug. So we made him a mug: #1 grandpa.’ That's what we could say, right?” said a firefighter.

Bloomberg stopped by the firehouse and the 108th police precinct to thank New York's bravest and finest for working to keep New Yorkers safe during the Christmas holiday.
