Former First Daughter and current Today show correspondent Jenna Bush Hager is reportedly leaving Baltimore for a new nabe, the Big Apple.

Hager's Baltimore 3-bedoom, 3-bath rowhouse, which she shares with husband Henry Hager, is on the market for $474,900, reports the Baltimore Sun. They paid $440,000 for it in 2008, right before their wedding, and have recently – and quietly – moved out.

Besides being closer to Today headquarters, a Manhattan move will also enable Jenna, 29, to be closer to her twin, Barbara, who lives in the West Village, reports The Washington Post.

Bush Twins take note: Your dad is anxious to be a grandfather.

"I'm a little disappointed it hasn't happened yet," former President George W. Bush tells December's AARP The Magazine. "But the more disappointment I show, the less likely it is things are going to happen on the time table I want."

He may be in for a wait since 28-year-old daughters Jenna Bush Hager, who married in 2008, and Barbara Bush are both focused on their careers. Jenna told PEOPLE in May that it will be "years" before she gives her parents grandkids. Fortunately, Bush has his wife Laura to keep him company.

You'd think Barbara Bush would be the first person tuning in every time sister Jenna, a Today show correspondent, does an on-air segment. Trouble is, Barbara has no TV!

"I live alone, so I'm trying to force myself to get out and do other things," Barbara tells PEOPLE of her low-fi existence in a fifth-floor New York City walk-up apartment.

Luckily, Jenna, who lives outside the city, regularly comes to town and stays in hotels – where Barbara can get her TV fix. "She'll pack a bag and come stay with me," says Jenna. "We're in the room, and I'll be, 'Can't we read?' And she's like, 'Nope. Is there a Law & Order on?' "

Barbara also keeps it simple when she visits Jenna and her husband, Henry Hager – she takes the bus. "It's $10 and has Internet," she explains.

What does former First Lady Laura Bush have on her iPod? The answer may surprise you.

"My mom's a secret Rastafarian," her daughter Jenna says in an interview scheduled to air on the Oprah Winfrey Show Tuesday, "so [she plays] Bob Marley" around the house.

Appearing on the show with her sister Barbara and mom Laura, who was promoting her new memoir Spoken from the Heart, Jenna explains what a typical night at the Bush family ranch in Crawford, Texas, is like. There's the music (the family also listens to "old country [songs]," Jenna says), family activities and plenty of food.

"We don't really cook dinner if I'm gonna be honest," Jenna says. "Somebody cooks dinner and we sit around and we talk and we laugh and we do puzzles and we get in bed by 9:00."

Teases Laura: "They didn't use to."

While waiting to make her debut as a Today show correspondent live from the new and massive Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Jenna Bush Hager was feeling a bit nostalgic.

"My first cat was named Cowboy, after the Dallas Cowboys," she told PEOPLE. "I'm from Texas and went to elementary school here, so to come back here to do my first story in Dallas is really meaningful to me. Especially since my parents moved back."


So where would former president George W. Bush and wife Laura be watching their daughter's debut? "At home. They're retired," she said with a laugh.

Hager, who plans to keep her part-time job as a sixth-grade reading resource teacher, will focus mostly on the education beat for Today. Her first assignment: a feature on Dalton Sherman, a Dallas 11-year-old public-speaking pro who has left some audiences in tears.
