Jenna Bush Hager and husband Henry Hager have welcomed their third child, saying that “life has never been sweeter.”
Jenna took to Instagram on Monday to announce that they welcomed their son, Henry Harold “Hal” Hager at 9:02 am on Friday, August 2nd. The post features a sweet photo of Jenna holding little Hal, and husband Henry Hager at her side, plus a photo of just Jenna and her new bundle of joy.
The now-mom of three looks amazing holding her new son, which has me wondering if she has discovered the fountain of youth or just has a stash of the best retinol creams that money can buy.
The third photo in the set features Jenna and Henry’s two daughters, Mila, 6, and Poppy, 3, plus proud grandparents former President George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush. The whole group posed for a sweet family photo with new baby Hal.
Jenna also posted a second set of photos on her Instagram of her two daughters meeting their baby brother for the first time, saying that their world was made “even sweeter” when their daughters met him.
The “Today” show co-anchor also called into her NBC morning show Monday morning to share her wonderful news with her fans. “I have a new baby boy. Henry and I met our little boy on Friday morning, Jenna said on the “Today” show. “His name is Henry Harold, named after my grandpa, and Henry for my husband, and we call him ‘Hal.'”
Jenna also added that her daughters are completely in love with their new baby brother, saying that “they’re crazy about him.”
Jenna Bush Hager originally broke the news on-air to her fans and fellow anchors back in April. She also spoke about her daughters and their reaction to the big news, which she revealed to them via their Easter baskets. According to Jenna, they were so excited that they couldn’t keep the good news to themselves, even telling strangers.
She also aired her gender reveal on TV during the fourth hour of NBC’s “Today” show that she co-hosts, opening a huge surprise box full of blue balloons and confetti, revealing that the oncoming child would be a boy.
Jenna originally met her now-husband Henry Hager during the 2004 presidential campaign for her father, former President George W. Bush. The pair were married in 2008.
