Jenna Bush Hager--daughter of former President George Bush and Laura Bush--is expecting her second baby. The Today correspondent is reportedly 20 weeks along.

“We’re so excited,” she confirmed to People magazine. “I’m ready to tell the world!”

Jenna Bush Hager and her husband Henry Hager are already the parents of two-year-old daughter, Mila.

Her baby bump got a kiss blown in its direction when Mila announced via video that there's a baby in her mama's belly.

“I appreciate life so much more as a mom. And I feel so lucky,” Jenna Bush Hager, who is 33, says. “I know how wonderful motherhood is and that makes it so much sweeter.”

So far this pregnancy has been an easy one.

“My husband even said, ‘I keep forgetting you’re pregnant,’” she jokes.

Jenna Bush Hager and her hubby shared their exciting news with George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush the day after Christmas.

“They were thrilled!” she said.

This time around the couple believed they were having a boy--and were quite surprised when Mila was born instead. Therefore the parents have decided to learn the gender of this baby ahead of time.

“We didn’t find out with Mila and we were convinced she was a boy, to the point that we painted the nursery a pale blue. And it was a girl! We were thrilled, but shocked,” Bush Hager says. “So with the second, we decided to find out.”

Little Mila is excited about being a big sister.

“We started talking [to her] about it,” Bush Hager says. “And she’ll say, ‘Hi baby!’ to my stomach. She is very precocious. I think she’ll be a great big sister but there may be a learning curve. She definitely likes attention!”

Jenna Bush Hager is even thinking as far ahead as baby number three.

“I want a big family. We’ll see what happens,” she shares.

Congratulations are no doubt going around today for Jenna Bush Hager and hubby Henry Hager, as well as to former President George W. Bush and wife Laura. The arrival of a new baby is a joyous occasion. How wonderful the entire family has this to anticipate in the coming months.
