George W. Bush Mad About Jenna Bush Hager's Baby's Name

George W. Bush Was “a Little Mad” That Jenna Didn’t Name Her Son After Him

Former President George W. Bush is a grandpa to a grandson for the first time, but he's maybe a little peeved that the little one wasn't also named George. His daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, welcomed her third child and first son with her husband Henry on Aug. 2, and her little guy is so cute, it hurts. Jenna and Henry chose to name their boy Henry Harold after his dad and other Henrys on the Hager side, as well as Laura Bush's dad, Harold Welch.

"My dad was a little mad that the name wasn't George but [was] just kidding," Jenna shared over the phone with her Today Show coanchors. "He said [Henry] was a cool name." Henry is a cool name, but it turns out that the newborn has quickly taken on the nickname "Hal," thanks to his older sisters, Mila and Poppy. Be it Henry, Hal, or whatever else he's called — we're sure the former president is just as smitten with his grandson as he would have been had he been named George. How could he not be?!
