Jenna Bush Hager is just one of those celebrities we’d actually want to spend time with in real life–and suffice it to say, we don’t always feel that way about famous people! But Jenna has a down-to-earth, good-natured personality that’s winning hearts left and right, and she’s also smart, classy, and accomplished in her own right. When we look back at sweet Bush family photos, we can hardly believe it’s the same young girl who’s turned into such a wonderful woman.
And despite being refined and graceful, make no mistake about it: Jenna also has a spunky side! Who can forget when everyone was asking if Jenna Bush Hager was pregnant, just because her dress for the Golden Globes was a little tight in a certain telltale spot? Jenna wasted no time addressing the criticism and speculation on social media she was facing–and she did it on national TV.
“No, I’m not pregnant, and I do not reply,” she said. “Because how do you reply other than saying, ‘Thank you very much. No I’m not. That was just a large dinner last night,'” the famous daughter of a U.S. president sassily declared on an episode of the Today show. Go, Jenna! We saluted that moment for sure.
And yet there’s even more to Jenna other than her famous family, her zingers on the show, and her status as a loving, grounded mom. Take, for instance, how adamant she was that her father, President George Bush, not run for office. Or her extreme pride in her Southern country roots, which might have something to do with her pick for her favorite celebrity interview to date (let’s just say it’s someone totally iconic.
Let’s not forget her deep, caring bond with her twin sister and best friend, Barbara. The two are so close they can do something creepy even when they’re far apart–and Jenna also tried to bag her sister a very famous date during a slightly embarrassing, very public moment that’ll have you laughing.
