"I think my dad picked me up in a pickup truck, in his pickup truck, and he said, ‘You look beautiful, baby,’ and then we both just wept."

Bush Hager's second memory was looking at her husband at the altar. The alter featured a beautiful homemade cross that the former US President helped build for his daughter's wedding.

The cross still stands on the Bush property, where the wedding was held. Bush Hager revealed that her three children, Hal, 18 months old, Poppy, five years old, and Mila, eight years old, have all stood on it.

The TV host also posted a very precious throwback photo of herself, her twin sister Barbara.
