He is originally from Richmond, Virginia, and graduated from the Darden School of Business in 2008. The 44-year-old also previously made an appearance on the TODAY show to try out being a journalist for a day. “That was tough,” he said after interviewing people on the streets of New York City. “I’m going to get a coffee, warm up and never try this again.”

Jenna has spoken about her hubby publicly many times, and is often posting about him on social media. The adorable couple got married in 2008, at their family’s Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford, Texas, per PEOPLE. The blonde beauty dated Henry while she was still living at the White House during her father’s presidency, and even dished about it during an episode of Andy Cohen‘s WWHL.

When some fans called in to ask her about the hilarious moment, Jenna revealed that Henry was caught by the secret service. “Well, he was caught, that was the problem,” she said. “But, as he says it, they are [secret service] supposed to keep people from coming in, they’re not looking for people that are going out.” Henry previously worked for Jenna’s dad, and they met through mutual friends during Bush’s presidency. In addition, the two got engaged during a “hiking trip” in Maine, the star told Hoda Kotb during an episode of their show in 2020.
