The Untold Truth About Jenna Bush Hager's Husband

At first, Jenna Bush Hager's mother, Laura Bush, didn't take Henry Hager seriously as a prospect for her daughter. "This is not a serious boyfriend — I hate to have to be the one to say it on television," she actually confessed in a TV interview in early 2005, as reported in The Washington Post. "But he's a very nice young man." 

But despite her own doubts, her husband ultimately approved. "Our little girl, Jenna, married a really good guy," President George W. Bush remarked at a press conference before returning to Washington, D.C., following the wedding, as covered by InStyle.

The groom had reportedly been working on making a good impression prior to the nuptials. Jenna Bush Hager's husband asked his bride's dad for her hand in marriage. It was an old-fashioned gesture that his mother, Maggie, had insisted on. She explained in an interview with The Washington Post thatshe expected all members of her family to follow the family rules. According to Bush Hager's book Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life, Bush Hager's dad was sold before the groom could even communicate his whole pre-planned speech, and he called out for his wife to come in and witness the exciting event as it unfolded.

She’s even opened up a lot about her personal life on Today, going into detail about “smooching” her now husband the day they met, and her previous ectopic pregnancy.

ICYMI, Jenna’s husband is a guy named Henry Hager, and they met through mutual friends. (P.S. He also used to work for her dad.) The two have been married for more than 11 years and together for 15, and they now have three children together after welcoming son Henry Harold “Hal” Hager in summer 2019 (they're also parents to daughters Poppy, 4, and Mila, 7).

This year, we learned even more about her family, since her husband Henry and daughter Mila crashed her TODAY show chats with Hoda (#quarantinelife).

Curious to know more about Jenna Bush's husband, Henry Hager? It's high time you got to know the main man in her life. (You know, aside from baby Hal.)

A mutual friend introduced Jenna and Henry.

“Henry and I had mutual friends who kind of set us up,” she told Hoda on Today. “I think setting people up is the most fun." She explained one of her college friends interned for Henry and brought him to watch a football game, where he met Jenna. "We smooched," she said, “to a Little Troy song.”

Laura Bush didn’t take him seriously at first.

“This is not a serious boyfriend—I hate to have to be the one to say it on television,” the former first lady said on national television in 2005, per The Washington Post. “But he’s a very nice young man.”

A year into dating, Henry faked a proposal.

In May 2006, while dining at D.C.’s Asia Nora restaurant, Henry asked for a bottle of champagne to be delivered to the table, with a note taped to it. After she read the note, Jenna burst out laughing.

“I thought you were proposing!” she shouted loud enough for the entire restaurant to hear. “I nearly [soiled] my pants!”

President Bush approved of Jenna marrying Henry.

Henry asked for his daughter’s hand in marriage before he proposed. “Our little girl, Jenna, married a really good guy,” InStyle reported he said at a press conference.

He also reportedly asked President Bush's permission. "So the guy comes to see me, and he says, ‘I want to marry your daughter,’” the 43rd President recalled, allegedly. “I said, ‘Done deal.’”

Like Jenna, Henry comes from a Republican family.

Henry’s father John Hager was the former lieutenant governor of Virginia and served as assistant secretary in the Department of Education during Jenna’s father’s second term. In 2007, he became the GOP chairman for the state of Virginia, then lost his bid for reelection the next year.

Henry also previously worked as a staff assistant under Karl Rove at the White House to President Bush from 2001 to 2003.

Henry works for a private equity firm in the oil sector.

Henry is the Managing Director at Waterous Energy Fund, a private equity firm that invests in “established” oil and gas companies “with top decile assets.” His firm believes it's an “ideal time to invest in the oil patch." Prior to joining Waterous, he was a director at Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR), where he worked with investment professionals to raise capital and manage assets, according to the George W. Bush Presidential Center. Before that, he was with Constellation Energy in its corporate strategy and development group in Baltimore.

Henry is super cute with their kids.

Henry surprised Jenna on her first day on Today with Hoda and Jennawith their two daughters. They stopped by Studio 1A to wish her luck on her new co-host position. The cuteness is only increasing now that Jenna and Henry have welcomed a baby boy to their family.

Last year, the family purchased a home on Long Island’s North Shore.

“There was something about it that reminded me of Texas, of being outside. Even this close to the city, there was a remoteness to it,” Jenna told Veranda. “There’s something magnificent about sitting under there with your friends and kids watching the rain,” she said. “You’re outdoors and you’re barefoot. It’s how Henry and I grew up, and it’s what we want for our children.”

Both she and Henry grew up in the South, and she liked that the property was full of birdhouses. “I come from a long line of birders. My parents bird for fun, and my grandmother Jenna was a naturalist. She would teach my sister, Barbara, and me about birds, rocks, every constellation in the sky.”

Jenna Bush Hager

American journalist, author, and television personality

Jenna Bush Hager (néeJenna Welch Bush; born November 25, 1981)[1] is an American news personality, author, and journalist. She is currently the co-host of Today with Hoda & Jenna, the fourth hour of NBC's morning news program Today. Hager and her twin sister, Barbara, are the daughters of the 43rd U.S. President George W. Bush and former First LadyLaura Bush. After her father's presidency, Hager became an author, an editor-at-large for Southern Living magazine, and a television personality on NBC, being featured most prominently as a member of The Today Show as a correspondent, contributor and co-host.[2]

Early life[edit]

Jenna (left) and Barbara Bush with their parents in 1990

Hager was born at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas,[1] and named after her maternal grandmother, Jenna Hawkins Welch.[3] While living in Dallas, she and her sister attended Preston Hollow Elementary School and then The Hockaday School. In 1994, after her father was elected Governor of Texas and the family moved to Austin, Texas, Bush was a student at St. Andrew's Episcopal School, and attended Austin High School from 1996 until her graduation in 2000.[4]

With her father becoming President in 2001, she attended the University of Texas at Austin and took summer classes at New York University. She was a legacy member of Kappa Alpha Theta, her mother's sorority. While there, Jenna and her sister Barbara made national headlines when they were both arrested for alcohol-related charges twice within 5 weeks: on April 29, 2001, Jenna was charged with a misdemeanor for possession of alcohol under the age of 21 in Austin. On May 29, 2001, Jenna was charged with another misdemeanor — attempting to use a fake ID (with the name "Barbara Pierce," her paternal grandmother's maiden name) to purchase alcohol. She pleaded no contest to both charges.[5][6][7][8] Jenna Bush graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in English in 2004.

She and Barbara asked their father not to run for president in 2000: "Oh, I just wish you wouldn't run. It's going to change our life." Her father told them that he and her mother needed to live their lives.[9] In the winter of 2003, she and Barbara opted to become involved in the 2004 campaign.[9] In response to this decision, she made media appearances during the summer of 2004 prior to the election. She and her sister made several joint public appearances, including giving a speech to the Republican Convention on August 31, 2004.[10] She made headlines when she was found sticking her tongue out to media photographers at a campaign stop in St. Louis.[11] Jenna and Barbara took turns traveling to swing states with their father and also gave a seven-page interview and photo shoot in Vogue.[3] Jenna later confirmed that Barbara and Jenna also developed a friendship with John Kerry's daughters, Alexandra and Vanessa, who campaigned on behalf of their father, Kerry.[12]

Career[edit]

Teaching[edit]

Before leaving Washington, D.C. in summer 2006, Hager worked at Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School for a year and a half as a teacher's aide.[13] She took a leave of absence from the charter school position to work at a shelter as part of an internship for UNICEF's Educational Policy Department in Latin America, specifically Panama.[14][15] After her internship for UNICEF, Hager returned to her position at the charter school in Washington, D.C.[16] She currently works as a part-time reading coordinator at the SEED Public Charter School in Baltimore, Maryland, and contributes a monthly news story about education for the Today show.[17]

Writing[edit]

In 2007, Hager began marketing a book proposal with the assistance of Robert B. Barnett, a Washington attorney.[14] The title of the book is Ana's Story: A Journey of Hope and it chronicles her experiences working with UNICEF sponsored charities in Latin America, including visits to drought-stricken Paraguay in 2006, while working as an intern for United Nations Children's Fund.[14][18][19]HarperCollins announced in March 2007 it would publish the book and it was released September 28, 2007, with an initial printing of 500,000 copies.[20] Her share of the profits will go to UNICEF; the remainder will go to the woman whose life is the basis of the book, assisting in the young woman's continuing education.[21] During the book tour, Hager appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show; during the interview Hager telephoned her parents.[22] Hager wrote a second book, in conjunction with her mother, designed to encourage children to read.[23] The book, entitled Read All About It!, was published on April 22, 2008, also by HarperCollins.[23]

On November 26, 2012, Hager was named editor-at-large of Southern Living magazine.[24]

NBC News (2009–present)[edit]

Since 2009, Jenna Bush has worked at NBC News as a correspondent, Today contributor and anchor. In August 2009, NBC hired Hager as a correspondent and contributor for The Today Show.

As time has progressed, Hager's profile has increased on Today including filling in as the orange room anchor during the 7AM-9AM hours and substituting for Kathie Lee Gifford or Hoda Kotb during the 4th hour.[25]

In 2018, she interviewed Michelle Obama in a discussion about her life in the White House, the challenges of raising her daughters in the spotlight and her book Becoming.[26] They also discussed the political atmosphere and political bipartisanship, with Obama stating that, despite their political differences, Hager's father, George W. Bush, is a "beautiful, funny, kind, sweet man".[27]

In March 2019, Hager started Read with Jenna, a monthly book club on Today Show.[28] In April 2019, Hager began co-anchoring the fourth hour of Today with Hoda Kotb following Kathie Lee Gifford's departure.[29]

In 2021, Hager reacted emotionally to the storming of the United States Capitol live on air saying:

I have had the privilege of standing on those steps for several inaugurations, not just for family members but for the first black president of the United States of America. I kissed my grandfather goodbye in that rotunda. I have felt the majesty of our country in those walls, and nobody can take that from any of us.[30]

Personal life[edit]

Bush met Henry Chase Hager during the 2004 presidential campaign. They became engaged in August 2007. Before proposing, Hager asked President Bush for permission to marry his daughter.[31] Their relationship became public when the two appeared together at a White House dinner for The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall in November 2005.

Bush.[33] The wedding took place during a private ceremony on May 10, 2008, at her parents' Prairie Chapel Ranch near Crawford, Texas. Henry and Jenna Hager have three children.[34][35][36]

Unlike most of her relatives (but like her twin sister Barbara), Hager is not a member of the Republican Party. While registering to vote in New York, she mistakenly registered with the Independence Party of New York while meaning to declare herself a nonpartisan.[37] In 2010, Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Bush told People that they preferred not to identify with any political party, stating, "We're both very independent thinkers."[38][39][40]

Hager serves on the board of the Greenwich International Film Festival.[41][42]

The Hagers started dating in the early 2000s, but were reportedly not super serious very early on.

“This is not a serious boyfriend — I hate to have to be the one to say it on television. But he’s a very nice young man,” Bush Hager’s mother, Laura Bush, said during an interview in 2005. Two years later, however, Bush Hager was set to become a bride.

Hager asked Bush Hager to marry him in August 2007, after asking her father permission for her hand in marriage.

“They have been great, great friends all this time,” Hager’s mother, Maggie, said shortly after the engagement. Acknowledging that her son asked George W. Bush permission first, Maggie explained, “Anybody raised in this family follows the rules,” according to the Washington Post.

The Hagers married in 2008. They exchanged vows at her parents’ ranch in Texas.

“The couple said ‘I do’ in front of 200 friends and family in an outdoor, lakeside ceremony at 7:30 p.m. The nuptials were presided over by the Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell, a longtime religious adviser to President Bush,” reports InStyle.

In 2015, the Hagers became a family of four, welcoming another baby girl into their lives. Poppy Louise Hager was born in August and was given a very special family name. “Poppy” was President George H. W. Bush’s childhood nickname.

Hager may not be a career politician, but, as the son of former Virginia Republican Party Chairman John H. Hager, he is fairly familiar with politics and how government works. Beyond that, he also has some political experience under his belt.

“Henry graduated from Wake Forest University in 2000, worked for Karl Rove, moved on to the 2004 reelection campaign, then joined the Commerce Department,” the Washington Post previously reported.

Additionally, Hager worked for George W. Bush, back when he was the President of the United States. He worked as a Staff Assistant to the Senior Advisor at the White House to President George W. Bush from 2001-2003. During the 2004 Presidential Campaign, Hager served as Deputy Operations Manager. He has also held various positions in the U.S. Department of Commerce, according to his bio on the Bush Center website.
