Even though she's enjoying her time off with her precious baby girl, Mila, new mom Jenna Bush Hager called in to the Today show yesterday to dish on Mila's sudden, surprising arrival!
Admitting that her baby girl arrived two weeks earlier than they'd planned, Jenna was at her baby shower when her water broke! At the time the mama-to-be was opening some of her baby shower gifts when she started feeling uncomfortable. She said, "I kind of started sweating, which I guess is a normal thing, but then, all of a sudden, in front of all of my friends, my water broke!"
"It was like a romantic comedy," she added, laughing.
But Jenna was quick to add that Mila's surprising debut was definitely worth it. She said, "I'm totally crazy about her." The proud new mama gushed, "We're just as happy as can be," to the Today team, where she works as a correspondent. "I've learned that you can love somebody in a totally different way," she told them over the phone. And it's certainly true — the unbelievable new mom feelings are nothing short of amazing.
Jenna also shared that she's experiencing her own firsts as a first-time mom. She said, "I don’t even really like the color pink, and there’s pink all over my apartment. I like things to be really neat, and there’s bottles and things all over, and we’re just as happy as can be." Regardless, the threesome is settling into their new life together just fine and daddy Henry Hager loves being a working dad!
Jenna told Today, "He's doing great. He's a really modern dad. He was taking a conference call while holding the baby yesterday." Geez! Talk about a great multitasker!
