Jenna Bush Hager reveals that her water broke at her baby shower!

Jenna Bush Hager has revealed that the guests at her baby shower got a little surprise! The new mother told her Today Show co-anchors that her water broke at her baby shower, three weeks early.

“I was having a baby shower that day, and I felt the baby move and everybody was staring at me cause it was one of those baby showers where you open gifts,” she said. “I kind of started sweating, which is a normal thing. but then all of a sudden in front of all of my friends, my water broke.”

It would seem that the 31-year-old had two baby showers, one that took place before she went on maternity leave that featured on the Today Show and in People magazine, and a second private party after she stopped work, during which her water broke.

The daughter of former President George W Bush says that she and her husband Henry are ‘as happy as can be’ despite the fact that their new daughter’s arrival has turned their home upside-down.

“I don’t even really like the color pink and there’s pink all over my apartment,” she admitted. “I like things to be really neat and there’s bottles and things all over.”

Jenna says she is head-over-heels in love with little Mila though.

“I’ve learned that you can love somebody in a totally different way,” she said. “I’m close to crying, of course, you know me. I’m totally crazy about her.”

She also shared pictures of her little daughter, Mila. How cute!

Jenna Hager: Key to Marriage Is Being Supportive

Jenna Hager

When First Lady Laura Bush packed the last of her White House things off to Dallas in January, she didn’t even know how to use a computer. Now, her daughter says, she’s a regular thumb-typer on a new Blackberry – and so is the former President.

“It’s funny to see them on their Blackberries. They didn’t have Blackberries in office,” their daughter Jenna Hager, 27, tells People. “And now it’s funny to get emails from them – even when I know they’re traveling.”

So have they mastered typing with their thumbs? “They’re learning,” says Hager. “My mom is pretty slow.”

As for Hager, a Baltimore 6th-grade teacher who celebrated her first wedding anniversary in May with husband Henry Hager, she’s still learning the secrets to a successful marriage: “We’ve only been married a year, so I don’t know if I’m any guru on marriage. I think it’s just to stay really supportive and active in each other’s lives.” Hager, who traveled with UNICEF during her father’s presidency, was in New York Thursday to launch her latest project with the organization, called Next Generation Initiative. Her twin sister, Barbara, is also involved.

“When I returned home from Latin America and the Caribbean, I realized that there really wasn’t much for our generation – my generation—Generation X and Y – to do to get involved with UNICEF,” Hager said at the launch party at The Gates nightclub. “So together, 30 of us formed UNICEF’s Next Generation. Right now, around the world, 25,000 kids die every day of preventable things like malnutrition, dehydration. It’s our goal to get our generation activated so that one day zero kids die of things we can prevent.”

Jenna Bush: Mom Laura became “Momzilla” planning the wedding

Jenna & Laura Bush

Sure, Jenna Hager was excited about planning her May 10 nuptials to Henry Hager — but not nearly as much as First Lady Laura Bush.

“She did start calling me Momzilla!” Laura admits on an upcoming episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show (airing Wednesday, May 28).

Adds Jenna, 26: “She liked the details more than I did!”

Laura says, “It really kind of hurt my feelings.”

Still, Jenna, who just attended her husband’s graduation, says she was glad to have her mother’s input.

“She’s just really good with details about parties — I would not have thought of some of the details,” says Jenna, who jokes her appearance on DeGeneres’ show was “sort of like a therapy session.”

Her daughter’s wedding isn’t the only milestone for the First Lady. In January, she will be vacating the White House after eight years.

“It’s a long time to live in the White House and to have that kind of stress,” she says. “There are a lot of things I’m looking forward to.”

She says she’s “going to keep a little book of things that I want to do … like garden.”

Jokes Jenna, “Today she said, ‘I just can’t wait to garden.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, right!’”

Jenna Bush talks about her wedding

Jenna Bush

For those not among the 200 friends and family members invited to the Crawford, Texas, ranch for next month’s wedding of first daughter Jenna Bush to fiancé Henry Hager, the bride-to-be is providing a brief preview.

“I was raised in Texas and it just felt right,” Bush, 26, said of holding the festivities in the Lone Star State rather than the White House, according to The Washington Post, citing the upcoming issue of Vogue.

“It means a lot to Henry and me to be outdoors,” she’s quoted as saying. “We wanted something organic and low key.”

Bush does say that the Executive Mansion initially was a consideration. But then, “That’s not really my personality. There’s a glamor to it, I know, but Henry and I are far less glamorous than the White House.”

Given Texas temps that time of year, the May 10th event will not commence until 7:30 p.m. – after the sun goes down. Dinner and dancing underneath a tent are to follow.

The bride’s twin sister, Barbara, will serve as maid of honor and the single bridesmaid.

The Wedding Dress
Also on hand: 14 attendants, to be dressed in short chiffon green, blue, yellow and lavender dresses by native Texas designer Lela Rose, whose wedding collection, launched in fall 2006, is described on her Web site as “a pairing of unconventional fabrics and techniques that are trademarks of the designer.”

More traditional is the choice of designer for the bridal gown itself: Oscar de la Renta, who has been a favorite of presidential wives for several administrations. This may explain why President Bush joked last month: “I had to face some very difficult spending decisions and I’ve had to conduct sensitive diplomacy. That’s called planning for a wedding.”

Laura Bush wore a de la Renta gown at the 2005 inaugural ball, as well as other creations by him for various formal occasions, and she and Jenna were seen visiting the New York designer’s showroom in February.

But the so-described “major traditionalist” in the group appears to be groom-to-be Hager – who reportedly plans to adhere to superstition and not gaze upon his future wife’s dress (not even in sketches or photos) until she meets him at the altar.
