  • Jenna Bush Hager shared rare family photos of George W. Bush to Instagram on Father’s Day.

  • The Today host posted a carousel of photos that also included her husband Henry Hager and their three children.

  • Jenna also honored her late grandfathers, George H.W. Bush and Harold Welch.

On Sunday, Jenna Bush Hager shared an Instagram post honoring the special fathers in her life, including her dad, late grandfathers, and husband Henry Hager. In the carousel of Instagram photos, the Today with Hoda & Jenna host shared rarely-seen pictures of her dad, former U.S. President George W. Bush, alongside other members of her family.

In the first photo, George smiles alongside Henry and his grandkids, Jenna’s daughters Mila and Poppy, while the next shows Henry with Mila, Poppy, and a very grown-up looking Hal (look at all that hair!).

In the third, Henry holds a plank while balancing the weight of one of his daughters on his back. The fourth and fifth photos feature George and his wife, former First Lady Laura Bush, with newborn Hal and dancing with Mila.

“Happy Father’s Day to two I adore. How grateful we are to have you. Love you both more than tongue can tell,” she wrote in the caption, adding a tribute to her late grandfathers George H.W. Bush and Harold Welch. “Missing two loving grandfathers today too. Love to those who are missing someone they love.”



Fans flooded the post with love for the Bush-Hager family, and many couldn’t get over how adorable Hal looks in the photos. Some thought he looked just like his mom, while others said he resembles grandpa. “Omg your family is beautiful. Hal looks so much like you in this picture! So sweet!” one person wrote. “Hal looks just like your dad,” another added.

Jenna also recently honored her late grandfather George H.W. Bush on his 96th birthday with a photo from when Jenna was a young girl.

“Dear Gampy, Today would have been your 96th birthday. I miss you every day—and see your gentleness and compassion in Mila, Poppy, and Hal. I love you more than tongue can tell,” she wrote on June 12, using a phrase that’s special to her family. “In honor of my Gampy, I’m co-chairing The George H.W. Points of Light Awards this year. I’m so grateful to join with @PointsofLight to celebrate individuals who are committed to changing the world.”
