Jenna undoubtedly loves her children to the moon and back. Previously, the media star penned a heartfelt letter to her daughters in anticipation of Mother’s Day.
In the letter, Jenna paid a tribute to her mother Laura, calling her “one of the all-time greats.”
“She always put us first; she was calm and patient even when we tested her,” Jenna wrote. “I watched her "mother" for many years, but it wasn't until you were born that I really understood what motherhood meant. And it wasn't until I first held you—with Grammee by my hospital bed—that I really understood my mom.”
She further described how she felt “honored” being compared to her mother.
“People will say, ‘You remind me so much of your mom,’ and I thank them. It is the best compliment,” she wrote as she went on to describe how she and her mother are alike.
