She admits that her husband isn't really the romantic type, but their relationship moved so fast that they married in 1977, only three months after their first golf game together. Speaking about when they first met she admits:

"I kind of think it was love at first sight."


The couple have two twin daughters together, "Today" co-host, Jenna Bush Hager, and author/activist, Barbara Bush. Not to be outdone by her father, Jenna sent her mother a birthday message saying:

"Happiest Birthday to my mama @laurawbush! Thanks for being our light—and teaching us the adoration of books and cats. No one holds a baby quite like you."

It is reported, since leaving the White, Laura has returned to Texas and continues her humanitarian work. She is the chairwoman of the George W. Bush Institute's Women’s Initiative, which focuses on global women's issues.
