A baby for former first daughter Jenna Bush Hager: Delight for former President George W Bush and his wife Laura who were desperate for grandchildren

She has become a hit on the Today Show with her warm on-air presence, but Jenna Bush Hager will be taking time off from the small screen to have her first child, MailOnline can reveal.

The daughter of former President George W Bush is expecting a baby with her husband Henry Hager – and debuted her bump on the NBC show on Tuesday morning.

The pretty blonde, 31, looked blooming as she showed off her fuller figure as she joined her twin sister Barbara at the UNICEF Snowflake ball in Manhattan last month.

A source said that Jenna and Henry, 34, were ‘thrilled’ as were both their families. It will be the first grandchild for President Bush and his wife Laura.

The couple, who have been married for four years, live in Manhattan, but last month, Jenna described herself as a ‘homesick Texan living in New York’.

Last year, the former first daughter admitted her parents were desperate for grandchildren, and told People: ‘I don’t have any children. I just have a cat, to my parents’ dismay.

‘My dad saw my husband’s boss at a conference, and he said to stop paying my husband until we produce children.’

The former teacher turned NBC correspondent said the couple were busy exploring New York and looking after their cat, Bernadette, adding: ‘We just try to spend as much time together as possible when we’re both home, even little things… I think the little moments are what’s most important.’
