Baby No. 3 is on its way! During a Monday, April 22, episode of the Today show, Jenna Bush Hager revealed she’s “very pregnant” with a baby boy and her daughters, Margaret 6, and Poppy, 3, already know the exciting news.
“I’m only telling because Mila and Poppy found out yesterday in their Easter baskets,” the 37-year-old revealed. “They told the man behind me on the airplane, they told the people at church.”
Jenna added that her friend and cohost Savannah Guthrie found out she was expecting when they were working on a dance challenge together and Jenna said she needed “seven or eight sports bras to hold these babies in.” After Savannah found out that Jenna was going to welcome another child, she told her to share the “sweet surprise” on the morning program.
“I am very pregnant … I don’t know how I hid these!” Jenna joked on Today, and said her husband, Henry Hager, was both shocked and thrilled when she told him the great news. “We’re thrilled, it is a shock, it’s a lot, but we’re grateful,” she gushed. “[The girls] are so happy, I mean to the point where they’re telling strangers.”
Since Hoda Kotb is on leave to celebrate her new baby, Jenna had Meredith Vieira on as her guest cohost and during the program, Hoda phoned in to congratulate Jenna on the great news. “I feel like this is your year for a million reasons,” she said. “This is the year of Jenna Bush Hager.” And we couldn’t agree more!
Hoda recently revealed that she adopted a new baby girl on the April 16 show of Today. After her colleagues told her how happy they were for her to have another baby, Hoda’s former cohost Kathie Lee Gifford told The Five that she’s thrilled Hoda’s “a momma again.” She said, “I’m thrilled about that. I knew that was coming. I just didn’t know when it was coming.”
Hoda named her daughter, Hope Catherine. Such a beautiful name!
