Jenna Bush Hager had a pleasant Easter surprise to announce on Monday morning and shared that she was pregnant with her third child. She also added that the news came as "a shock" for her and her husband Henry Hager. 

Jenna decided to make the announcement on the 'Today' show after she had shared the news with her husband and their two daughters — six-year-old Mila and three-year-old Poppy over the weekend. She revealed, "I'm only telling because Mila and Poppy found out yesterday in their Easter baskets. They told the man behind me on the airplane, they told the people at church..."



 

 

She further said how she is "very pregnant" and also confessed that she had no idea how she had been able to keep it a secret for so long. She said jokingly, "I am very pregnant... I don't know how I hid these!" before revealing that her best friend and co-host Savannah Guthrie was already aware of the pregnancy as the two were working on a dance challenge together when Jenna said that she needed "seven or eight sports bras to hold these babies in."

Savannah was the one who egged Jenna to share the news on the show and asked Jenna about the "sweet surprise" which she had given the girls over Easter. Jenna shared, "They got something extra, it's pretty sweet..." She also spoke of how the news had come as a "shock" to her and her husband. "We're thrilled, it is a shock, it's a lot, but we're grateful," she shared.

"[The girls] are so happy, I mean to the point where they're telling strangers. Henry all of a sudden will be like, 'Wait what are we doing?'" she continued. She did not reveal any more details about her pregnancy but did mention that she had plans to reveal her due date and also the gender of the child on the fourth hour of the show.



 

 

It was just last week that Jenna paid tribute to her grandmother Barbara Bush on the first year anniversary of the former First Lady's death. She took to Instagram to share, "Missing you Ganny today and every day. One year without our enforcer—hard believe. You made us better and we love you more than tongue can tell [sic]." Barbara Bush had passed away last year at the age of 92.
