Aside from her job as a passionate TV host, journalist and children’s book author, Jenna Bush Hager is most importantly the loving mom of her three kids: Margaret, Poppy and Hal. The Today star shares her beautiful family with her longtime husband, Henry Hager.
Jenna tied the knot with her businessman beau in 2008. The former first daughter became a proud mom when she welcomed their eldest daughter, Margaret — who goes by “Mila” — in 2013. The Hagers weren’t a family of three for long, though, as the couple expanded their brood when Poppy arrived in 2015.
Nearly four years later in April 2019, Jenna surprised the world when she announced they were expecting baby No. 3. The Sister First author revealed the sweet way Mila and Poppy reacted when she told them she was “very pregnant” with their baby brother.
“I’m only telling because Mila and Poppy found out yesterday in their Easter baskets,” Jenna gushed at the time during an episode of Today. “They told the man behind me on the airplane, they told the people at church.”
The Texas native said although it was a “shock” to find out she was pregnant, she and Henry couldn’t have been happier. “We’re thrilled … it’s a lot, but we’re grateful,” she marveled. “[The girls] are so happy, I mean to the point where they’re telling strangers.”
Just months later in August 2019, Jenna announced they were officially a family of five after Hal made his highly anticipated arrival. The daughter of former president George W. Bush posted the sweetest photos of her family while celebrating Hal’s birth.
“I have a new baby boy,” Jenna wrote via Instagram alongside photos of their completed clan. “His name is Henry Harold, named after Harold, my grandpa, and Henry, of course. We weren’t exactly sure about the name, but then his big sisters arrived and they called him ‘Hal pal,’ and we thought, ‘This is just perfect.'”
Since Hal came into the world, Jenna has certainly had her hands full raising her tiny tots. While she previously joked she was “hanging on by a thread,” the Today with Hoda & Jenna star insisted she was “enjoying” her life as a mom of three “so much.”
“[I’m] making sure that each child has the love that I know I feel for them,” she added. “It’s fun. I’m really happy.”
