Jenna Bush Hager’s daughters are the cutest! The TODAY show co-host shared an adorable video of her daughters wishing their late great-grandmother, Barbara Bush, a happy birthday on June 8, the day that would have marked her 94th birthday. 


In the heartwarming video, Jenna’s little girls, Poppy, 3, and Mila, 6,  looked adorable beyond words as they pointed towards the sky and showed their deep affection towards their grandmother.

"I love you Ganny, happy birthday!" Mila said as she looked towards the sky. Her younger sister Poppy chimed in as they sent their birthday wishes up to the sky. 

"Happiest Birthday to our fearless enforcer," Bush Hager captioned the post,. "So happy you’re celebrating with Gamps. We miss you today and everyday."


Barbara passed away at the age of 92 in April 17, 2018 in Huston, Texas after losing the battle with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and congestive heart problems. 


Barbara Bush might have left the world, but she is alive in her loved ones’ hearts including her granddaughter Jenna’s, who always keeps her beloved grandma in her thoughts. 


Previously, the media personality shared a snapshot of the former First Lady in her Instagram account as a tribute on her death anniversary. 

“Missing you Ganny today and everyday. One year without our enforcer—hard believe. You made us better and we love you more than tongue can tell [sic],' Jenna captioned the photo,” she captioned the picture.


In an episode of Today show, Jenna shared how she still cannot believe that Barbara is gone because her presence was so powerful. 

This morning, my aunt and dad pointed out it's been one year since we lost my precious grandma, which I cannot believe because she was such a force. So I woke up thinking of her this morning.

It is heartwarming to see that Jenna is largely inspired by her grandma and often remembers her before doing something impulsive

“Even now, when I’m about to do something impulsive, I think, "Would my grandmother like that?" And usually, if the answer’s no, I hold back,'” she shared.
