“Today” star Jenna Bush Hager’s twin sister Barbara used the COVID-19 quarantine to spend time with her parents, moving with them for months at their ranch, as the political activist recently shared in an interview.

38-year-old Barbara Pierce Bush, one of the two daughters of former US President George W. Bush, had a great year ahead of her when she welcomed 2020, but it all changed in March, when the COVID-19 pandemic became a new reality.

Looking forward to graduating with a master’s degree from Harvard University in May, Barbara had to relocate to her parent’s ranch in Texas along with her husband of two years Craig Coyne, to finish school virtually.

As Barbara recently told People, her husband and she thought they were going to spend two weeks with Barbara’s parents, and now they have already lived with the former First Couple for five months.

Although Barbara was delighted to get to spend so much quality time with her parents during quarantine, she joked about her husband ever imagining he was going to move with his parents-in-law for so long.

“But of course we see the huge blessing in that, that we would never have this time with my parents,” Barbara added, having relocated to the Bush family compound in Maine since the late summer.

While it’s been two years since the family lost Barbara’s grandparents, former US President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara, the family is still getting used to not having them around when they all get together, as they did during the summer, quarantining together.

“While it's quieter without [my grandparents] we keep them alive by telling all of our hilarious and moving stories,” Barbara also told the news outlet.

THEIR WEDDING

Barbara and Coyn, a screenwriter, got married back in October 2018, in a private ceremony officiated at the family’s estate in Kennebunkport, Maine, with two former US Presidents (her father and grandfather) in attendance.

The ceremony was officiated by Barbara’s aunt Dorothy Bush Koch, and Barbara’s sister Jenna, a co-host on the “Today” show since 2018, shared details of the celebration the day after while on the morning show.

“I’m crying 24 hours later. There were so many happy tears,” Jenna told her co-hosts back then, also getting emotional about the loss of former First Lady Barbara Bush months before the wedding.
