Jenna Bush Hager: First Daughter to First-Time Mom

A STAR IS BORN

She's in good hands! Before becoming Mr. President, George W. Bush enjoyed his role as Mr. Mom when he and wife Laura welcomed Jenna and her fraternal twin sister Barbara on Nov. 25, 1981, in Dallas. The former commander-in-chief has been eager to see babies in the family again: "I'm a little disappointed it hasn't happened yet," he told AARP The Magazine in 2010.
