The ‘Today Show’ correspondent and former first daughter is expecting her first child. Congrats to Jenna, her husband Henry and the entire Bush family!

Jenna Bush Hager, 31, is going to be a mommy!  The daughter of former President George W. Bush confirmed the good news to People on Dec. 12. Jenna married Henry Hager, 34, in 2008. This is the couple’s first child. Congrats!

“We’re so excited,” Jenna told the magazine. “We can’t wait.”

Jenna has been a correspondent on Today since 2009, covering mostly human interest and feature stories. She recently announced she would be accepting a new position as Editor at Large at Southern Living magazine.

Jenna recently interviewed her grandmother, Barbara Bush, about her young daughter, 3, who died of Leukemia.

And on a much more happy note, she interviewed the hottest boy band in the world right now, One Direction!

Henry works at investment firm KKR. The couple met while campaigning for President Bush in 2004. They got married in May 2008 at the Bush family’s Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford, Texas.

Daily Mail says her growing bump was visible on the Dec. 11 episode of Today.

Jenna spoke to PEOPLE in June 2011, saying, “I don’t have any children. I just have a cat, to my parents’ dismay. My dad saw my husband’s boss at a conference, and he said to stop paying my husband until we produce children.”

On quality couple time, she added, “We just try to spend as much time together as possible when we’re both home, even little things. We had a UNICEF event this week, but before we went, we went for a walk up the West Side Highway just to catch up. I think the little moments are what’s most important.”

Now they can share those little moments with a baby! So sweet!

HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Jenna’s rep and is waiting on a comment.

Congrats to the happy couple! Are YOU excited for Jenna and Henry, HollyMoms?
