For the third time, Jenna Bush Hager is a mother.
“I’ve got a new child. On Friday afternoon, Henry and I met our little kid,” Jenna said by phone on Monday’s “Today” episode. “His name is Henry Harold, by my grandfather’s name, and Henry by my husband, and we call him Hal.”
In April, on the “Today” episode, Hager, 37, confirmed that she and spouse Henry Hager were waiting again. She also posted a clip of her siblings Mila, 6, and Poppy, 3’s Easter ceremony reacting to the news of pregnancy.
Newborn Hal is the latest response to the episode nursery “Today,” as her child, Hope Catherine, was adopted by Hager’s co-anchor Hota Kotb in April. Shortly after Kathie Lee Gifford left “Today,” both women announced their child news and Hager was announced as her replacement.
Poppy Louise, who is nearly four, and Margaret “Mila” Laura, six, are also relatives of the pair. Congratulations on the fantastic news to the lucky pair!
