Former First Daughter Jenna Bush Hager announced Wednesday on NBC's the Today show, where she works as a contributing correspondent, that she is pregnant with her first child — reported Yahoo News via the AP.
Jenna, the twin daughter of former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush, has been married to husband Henry Chase Hager for four years and this will be their first child. The baby, due in the spring, will also be former President Bush's first grandchild.
President Bush said he's "fired up" about becoming a grandfather. He made the remarks during a phone call to the Today show, while Laura Bush, the former first lady, said she's "thrilled" with the news.
Bush reappeared on the national spotlight last week in an immigration-oriented event in Texas where the former president called for starting a debate on immigration policy "with a benevolent spirit and keep(ing) in mind the contribution of immigrants.”
