Jenna Bush Hager has shared a portrait of her son, Henry 'Hal' Harold gifted to her for Christmas by her dad, George W. Bush. The portrait bears Bush's customary "43" signature.

The former president has depicted Henry with long, red hair, wearing a light blue sweatshirt and displaying a big smile on his face. One commenter reacted to the resemblance little Henry bears to Hager.

The 39-year-old communicated the delight the portrait brings her, as she tagged and thanked her father for how he has captured his grandson, as she captioned the image:

"My favorite Christmas gift. My Hal painted by his Jefe."

With several others making comments about how adorable and precious the portrait is, one follower remarked how wonderful it was that this was a present they would have all their lives.

Bush took to painting following his presidency and was inspired after reading 1948's "Painting As A Pastime", written by the former British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill.

Fans of Bush's paintings can look forward to his upcoming release, titled "Out of Many, One: Portraits of America's Immigrants," due in March.

In 2017, the former president released his own book, "Portraits of Courage" in which he had painted veterans as an illustration of the horrors they had faced while serving.

In July 2020, Hager relished the time Henry got to spend with his grandparents, whom they had seen only once before, as a result of the pandemic restrictions. She recently said on "Jenna and Hoda:"

"I'm looking forward to seeing family members, seeing friends. [...] I'm never going to take the time I spend with people I love for granted again."

Hager was sharing some of the things she was grateful for in 2020, and forecasting her resolutions for the new year, as part of pre-empting the New Year's Eve special she co-hosted with Hoda Kotb.

Hager is a mom of 3 children, with her husband Henry Hager, whom she married in 2008. Five years later, they welcomed their daughter, Mila Laura, 7, followed by Poppy Louise, 5, before their son Henry arrived in 2019.

Hager previously joked about being denied entry to her daughters' club with their aunt, and Hager's twin sister, Barbara Pierce Bush, called "Glitter Club." They enjoy activities including baking cookies and decorating them with glitter.

Meanwhile, fans of Bush's paintings can look forward to his upcoming release, titled "Out of Many, One: Portraits of America's Immigrants," due in March.

The portraits are said to feature 43 works of art of immigrant Americans and their life stories. They will go on exhibit in January 2022 at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in University Park, Texas.
