Former first daughter turned talk show host Jenna Bush Hager welcomed her third child, a son, on Friday, August 2nd. The baby boy, named Henry Harold “Hal” Hager, was born at 9:02AM, already making him more of a morning person than I am. He weighed  7 lbs, 5 oz and was 19.5 inches long and was welcomed via-C-Section. Jenna announced she was pregnant publicly in April, after telling her daughters in their Easter baskets.

Little HHH shares a name with his father, Henry Hager, who Jenna married in 2008. They also share two daughters, Mila and Poppy. Mila is 6 and Poppy is 4. Apparently, the girls already have a nickname for their little brother.

“His sisters are thrilled to have a little brother and already nicknamed his nickname, exclaiming ‘welcome to the world Hal Pal!,” Jenna told People magazine.

HHH’s name has a lot of meaning, as is to be expected in a family with a lot of Georges and Barbaras.

“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,” according to Jenna

Grandma and First Lady Laura Bush also posted a welcome to the world message on Instagram.
