Pregnant Jenna Bush Hager Says Dad George W. Bush Is Excited About Having Grandson: ‘He’ll Have a Little Fishing Buddy’
One happy camper! Jenna Bush Hager recently announced that she is pregnant with her third child, and first son. And after having two daughters, the Today cohost says her folks, George W. Bush and wife Laura Bush, are very pumped!
“They’re over the moon about it,” the 37-year-old tells People. “Everybody is so excited.”
“My dad keeps joking that we need to name him George,” the TV personality continues, before revealing that she and her husband, Henry Hager, don’t know what they will be calling their newborn.
Jenna and Henry’s two daughters, Margaret “Mila” Laura, 6, and Poppy Louise, 3, are of course completely loved in the family, but the former president, 72, is extremely excited about having a little boy in the family. “We had two girls. That’s all he’s ever known,” she tells the outlet. “It’ll be nice for him to have a little fishing buddy as well,” she adds.
But when will this little boy arrive? “I know I’m far along in my pregnancy, but because we were keeping it quiet and working on the show, there’s so much I have to do,” Jenna says, adding that she’s “due in the late summer.”
Jenna revealed she was pregnant on the NBC morning news program on April 22. “I’m only telling because Mila and Poppy found out yesterday in their Easter baskets,” the Sisters First author said at the time. “They told the man behind me on the airplane, they told the people at church.”
“I am very pregnant … I don’t know how I hid these!” Jenna added after revealing she needed “seven or eight sports bras to hold these babies in,” during a dance challenge.
“We’re thrilled, it is a shock, it’s a lot, but we’re grateful,” she continued. “[The girls] are so happy, I mean to the point where they’re telling strangers.”
We know everyone is happy for Jenna and her family!
