Jenna Bush Hager revealed on this morning’s Today show that her daughter, Margaret Laura “Mila” Hager, wasn’t due to arrive until early May. But the littlest member of the famous Bush family decided to make her entrance early – and in a big way.
“I was having a baby shower that day, and I felt the baby move, and everyone was staring at me ’cause it was one of those baby showers where you open gifts,” she explained in her phone call to the show.
“I kind of started sweating, which I guess is a normal thing, but then all of a sudden, in front of all my friends, my water broke!”
That called a halt to the festivities – but the important thing is that both mom and baby did just fine. At 6 pounds 15 ounces, Mila was hardly a tiny preemie.
On the plus side, as host Matt Lauer pointed out, Jenna’s hair was done for the occasion, so those first baby photos show her looking totally put-together.
Now Jenna and husband Henry are delighting in being parents, even though she laughs about their cluttered apartment and all the pink baby items – a color she confesses she doesn’t like all that much.
“I’m totally crazy about her,” Jenna says of her little daughter. “I’ve learned that you can love somebody in a totally different way.”
And what a story she’ll have to tell her little girl in a few years!
