As a co-host of Hoda and Jenna on Today, Jenna Bush Hager does not get surprised that easily. Well, that changed when her employers threw her for a loop on air.
During a July 4 segment on the NBC morning program, producers dug up an old family photo featuring the #ReadWithJenna star with her twin sister Barbara, mom and former First Lady Laura Bush, and her dad and former President George W. Bush. Looking very much like a poster child for the ’90s, Bush Hager adorably donned an American flag-style shirt and a red headband. To make it even more perfect, the photo featured her with a short bob and blunt bangs. While co-host Hoda Kotb loved seeing the childhood moment, Bush Hager had different thoughts.
“Look at your outfit,” Kotb told her. “I know, please stop,” Bush Hager replied, absolutely embarrassed by the whole ordeal. “It’s just so mean.”
Despite her Kotb trying her best to hype up Bush Hager in the process (“It does not mean. You look cute!”), Her co-host did not seem to be into the throwback. In fact, after ribbing her father for looking super young (“Who is he?”), She gave viewers a potential clue into why she had her hair styled that way.
“I mean that’s – no wonder,” she joked. “I was just desperate to be Kelly Taylor on 90210.“
Of course, fans not only loved seeing the old photo, but they let her know on Hoda and Jenna‘s official Instagram page too. “Jenna is the cutest ever! She looks just like her dad and Barbara looks just like her mom! Perfect twins 👯♀️ 😍😍,” another replied. And one fan clearly grew up during the same era, as they responded, “We all wanted to be Kelly Taylor on 90210!”
Hopefully we’ll get more glimpses into Jenna’s childhood throughout her tenure on Hoda and Jenna.
