Chelsea Clinton isn’t the only former first daughter to have a baby recently. Today co-host, and of course daughter of former POTUS George W. Bush, Jenna Bush-Hager gave birth to baby number three last Friday!
It looks like Bush Hager took her maternity leave just in time. The Today co-host said a teary farewell (for now, not for good) on Thursday. By the next day Bush Hager was holding her first son, Henry Harold “Hal” Hager.
So where did little Hal get his name? His first name comes from his father and his middle name, Harold, comes from Bush Hager’s grandfather. If you’re scratching your head and asking, “Harold?,” the name is obviously not from Bush Hager’s paternal grandfather—George Bush. Instead, she named Henry Harold after her maternal grandfather, Harold Welch.
The new mama told Today, “We weren’t exactly sure about the name.” She went on to add, “Then his big sisters called him ‘Hal pal,’ and we thought, ‘This is just perfect.'”
Congrats to Bush-Hager, her hubby Henry and new big sisters Mila and Poppy!
