In pictures: George W Bush's life
Texan at heart

George W Bush, the eldest child of George H W Bush and his wife Barbara, was born in New Haven, Connecticut, on 6 July 1946.

When Bush was just two years old his father became involved in the oil business and the family moved to Odessa, Texas.

Although not born in Texas, George W took the lone star state to heart and has always played up his Texan roots.

Here he can be seen in the summer of 1955, flanked by his parents.
