It looks to me like Khandro RInpoche's sister had a baby. They have a family lineage of female adepts, going back centuries... so it's really quite wonderful that there is a daughter.

Mindrolling is a family lineage that has a monastery.
The Throne-holder is a Ngakpa and as such he cannot
be the abbot of the monastery, usually one of his brothers
is the Mindrolling Khenpo. There is also a female lineage-holder--
the Khandro. Khandro Rinpoche is the current female lineage holder
lama. In each generation there are two if not all three.
That is the tradition there.

I see, thanks. And Britton Bosarge is a westerner who is married to Khandro Rinpoche's sister?
