Jenna Bush Hager’s Girls Are the Apples of Her Eye — and Now She Has a Son! Meet Her 3 Kids
If you follow Jenna Bush Hager on Instagram or watch her segments on The Today Show, you know that her two daughters, Mila and Poppy, are the lights of her life — and now she's officially a mom of three following the 2019 birth of her son.
Jenna and her husband, Henry, tied the knot in 2008 and welcomed their first child five years later. And six years after the birth of their first daughter, Jenna announced she was expecting baby number three. Read ahead to meet all three of Jenna's kids.
Margaret Laura "Mila" Hager
Margaret, Jenna and Henry's first child, was born on April 13, 2013. Although the little one — who is Former President George W. Bush's first grandchild — goes by Mila, her first and middle names carry lots of meaning for both Jenna and Henry, as she's named after her grandparents: Margaret "Maggie" Hager and Laura Bush.
On her seventh birthday, Jenna shared a photo of her oldest child on Instagram with the sweet caption: "Happiest 7th Birthday to our Mila! Named after both your grandmothers, you have their love of life, love of books and love of laughter. Your empathy and kindness amaze. I hope you never have to guess how loved you are because our love for you is infinite!"
Poppy Louise Hager
Poppy, who was born on Aug. 13, 2015, also has sweet significance behind her name — the little one's great-grandfather, George H.W. Bush, was nicknamed Poppy growing up. "What a gift that my girls got to know our Gampy," Jenna wrote on Instagram after the former President's passing. "What an honor that we could name our Poppy after such a principled, humble, kind man who we all loved fiercely and who loved us back."
Henry Harold "Hal" Hager
Triple H! Henry Harold Hager, who has been given the nickname "Hal," was born on Aug. 2, 2019, just a few months after Jenna announced her pregnancy on The Today Show. "Welcome to the world my darling Henry Harold 'Hal' Hager . . . our life has never been sweeter," Jenna wrote on Instagram when she announced Hal's birth. She added, of the baby boy meeting his older sisters, "And our world made even sweeter when our girls met their baby brother."
Jenna and Henry love giving their kids names with significance, so it's no surprise that Henry was named after both his dad and paternal grandfather, and he gets the name Harold from Jenna's maternal grandfather — so cute!
