Jenna Bush Hager Is Pregnant with Her 3rd Child
Jenna Bush Hager, 37, happily revealed her pregnancy with her third child during the “Today” show, less than a week after her co-host, Hoda Kotb, 54, announced adopting her second child.
On Monday’s episode of the “Today” show, Jenna Bush Hager revealed that she was pregnant, amid her discussion about Easter celebrations with co-hosts, Dylan Dreyer and Savannah Guthrie.
The 37-year-old shared how her two kids, Mila, 6, and Poppy, 3, found out through Easter egg baskets.
“It’s pretty sweet, I don’t know if it’s sugary,” Hager said on the show.
Her co-anchor, Craig Melvin, quickly guessed her pregnancy, which Hager excitedly confirmed. She also said that her kids were thrilled to hear the news that they went on telling people like the man seated behind them on the plane and the people at church.
Guthrie knew about the pregnancy as she and Hager have been working out together for some time, even jumping and dancing around, celebrating the good news.
On the other hand, she was hesitant and anxious to tell Hoda Kotb, her co-host, as they were in the middle of starting a new show.
Hager also revealed her baby’s gender with guest co-host, Meredith Vieira.
However, on the fourth hour of “Today,” Hager received a surprise on-air phone call from Kotb who was just as excited, saying this was Hager’s “year for a million reasons.”
During the segment, Hager also revealed her baby’s gender with guest co-host, Meredith Vieira; it’s a boy! The baby will be the first grandson on both sides of the family and the third grandchild of former President George Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush.
Before the big reveal, Kotb announced on Tuesday the arrival of her second child, whom she adopted, with her partner, Joel Schiffman. Hager and Guthrie were among the many who couldn’t contain their eagerness to meet baby Hope Catherine and rushed to Kotb’s home after taping to meet her.
Photos of Hope and the co-hosts were posted on Hager’s social media account as she called it the “best day ever.”
