Jenna Bush Hager and Henry Hager are officially parents of three! The happy couple announced they were expecting on April 22, and Jenna was already five months pregnant.

Now they’ve welcomed their baby boy to the family.

The baby boy, Henry Harold ‘Hal’ Hager, was born on August 2, 2019. Jenna released a statement on Instagram saying, “Welcome to the world my darling Henry Harold ‘Hal’ Hager! Hal came into the world Friday, August 2, 2019 at 9:02am and our life has never been sweeter.”

Jenna told People:

 “We are overcome with joy to welcome Henry Harold ‘Hal’ Hager into this world! He is named Henry after many on his father’s side including his dear dad and his paternal grandfather. Harold comes from my maternal grandfather, Pa, who I loved dearly and was unable to keep a son long enough to name. His sisters are thrilled to have a little brother and already nicknamed his nickname, exclaiming ‘welcome to the world Hal Pal!'”

The former first daughter and Henry first met in 2004, and Henry proposed in August 2007. They tied the knot on May 10, 2008, in a private ceremony at Jenna’s parents’ Prairie Chapel Ranch in Texas.

Jenna and Henry welcomed their first child, daughter Margaret “Mila” Laura, in April 2013. Two years later, in August 2015, they welcomed another daughter, Poppy Louise.

In April of this year, Jenna announced on the Today show that she was pregnant with her third child. At the same time, she announced that they were expecting a baby boy. Both Mila and Poppy were thrilled to learn that they would have a baby brother.

Congratulations to the happy family on their new arrival!
