Jenna Bush Hager got an unexpected surprise on Monday's episode of Today.

Monday was Jenna Bush Hager's last day on the set before she goes on maternity leave.

Jenna Bush Hager is getting ready to have her second daughter with her husband, Henry Hager. Their daughter, Mila, is 2.

Jenna Bush Hager's co-hosts sent her off right with gifts, including diapers, books, and other gifts.

But, the best gift was a phone call from Jenna Bush Hager's mom, Laura Bush, and her grandmother, Barbara Bush.

Laura Bush said on the phone, "We're calling in just to give her lots of love, and tell her we can't wait to see that new baby."

The ladies said that everyone was anxiously awaiting the 13th, which is when Jenna Bush Hager is due.

Family of before we become family of . Not sure our M knows what she's in for!

Jenna Bush Hager was clearly emotional and teary, as lots of pregnant women are, and kept saying, "I can't handle this!"

Barbara Bush told her granddaughter, "Good luck to you and we know you're getting ready to go on maternity leave and so we're thrilled to have you around."

Savannah Guthrie chimed in "One thing we know the Bush ladies know how to do is raise beautiful little girls."

To that, Barbara Bush replied, "Wait a minute. We're not bad on boys!"

Happy Birthday to my fiesty, funny, smart Ganny. Tune into @todayshow at 8am.

Clearly they're not bad on boys. With two former presidents in the family and a possible presidential candidate, not to mention a slew of other politicians, the Bush family isn't lacking.

What did you think of Jenna Bush Hager's surprise phone call? Wasn't that a sweet moment?
