Jenna Bush Hager gave a candid interview to “People” magazine where she revealed a wish that her children have for her twin sister Barbara Pierce Bush.
Speaking to the publication at her home, the “Today” show co-anchor revealed that her daughters were “dying” to have a baby cousin. Bush Hager, 37, is a parent to daughters Poppy Louise, 4, and Margaret “Mila” Laura, 6½, and son Henry “Hal” Harold, 3-months-old.
The television host shared her own opinion on the matter saying: “My mom [Laura Bush] always says people get their babies when they’re supposed to.” She also added that she was “not trying to put pressure on” her sister.
However, she did reveal that Bush “wants children soon” with her screenwriter husband Craig Coyne. In the meantime, her twin sister was still able to bond with her nieces and nephew.
“We make cookies and glitter slime”
In August, Bush was the first visitor at the hospital after her twin gave birth to baby Henry. She's also managed to bond with her nieces in a special way.
The “Today” co-host revealed:
“Barbara and my kids formed a glitter club, which I’m not part of because they think that I am going to be offended by the mess.”
Speaking about the “glitter club,” Bush joked:
“[Jenna] would prefer we be as clean as possible, but I think the role of aunt is to ignore that and have as much fun as possible. So I bring candy, we make cookies with icing and sprinkles and we make glitter slime — and then I leave!”
Bush Hager complained that she was the “glitter cleaner.” She also shared how she preferred the club to do their messier projects outside instead of inside.
The former first daughters are currently on tour to promote their new children’s book, “Sisters First.” The nine-stop tour started on November 11, 2019, in New York City.
The sisters plan on finishing the on Sunday in Naperville, Illinois.
The day Bush Hager started her book tour also happened to be the same one she returned to "Today With Hoda and Jenna." The co-anchor had been on maternity leave after giving birth to her son.
Her co-host, Hoda Kotb, returned to the show in September 2019 after welcoming her daughter, Hope. Speaking about her newborn on the show, Bush Hager said: "It feels so good.”
However, she also admitted that the thought of leaving him was difficult for her. She revealed how she’d “held him a little tighter” and even cried on the night before her return.
