Recently during an Instagram live, Jenna revealed that the godmother of her son was her fellow TODAY co-host, Savannah Guthrie. She shared that the two went to the same church and that Savannah had been there for her and provided support after her grandfather's funeral.
She remembered, going to church after George W. Bush died and being asked to read a prayer in front of the congregation. When she got up there, she was unable to continue and Savannah stepped in to help. She said,
"I was shaking so hard, sobbing so much that Savannah kind of had to step in. But I think that’s what a really beautiful friend does — they step in when you have lost your voice."
As she continues to film the "Today with Hoda and Jenna" show from her house, Jenna has had different family members interrupt the shoot, with the latest being her husband.
During a talk about quarantine life, her husband Henry, popped his face into the frame, asking viewers if anyone would give him a haircut for Christmas.
Earlier this month Jenna shared a touching photo of her mother Laura Bush, and her late grandmother in honor of Mother's Day as she thanked them for their roles in shaping her as a woman.
