Shaken to tears: Jenna Bush Hager, 37, became emotional during the Today show on Wednesday while reading the heartfelt note that her co-star Hoda Kotb wrote to her the day before at her baby shower
Making memories: Hoda, 54, was one of the guests who wrote a Jenna message on the back of their individual place cards at the party
As they went to their dear friend, the guests all wrote Jenna notes on the back of their individual place settings, and waited until the next day to read the letter that Hoda, 54, had written.
The expectant mother of three knew she would be emotional and asked her co-star Willie Geist to wish her success before she started.
& # 39; Jenna, you represent everything I love, & # 39; she read aloud and was immediately choked by Hoda & # 39; s words. & # 39; Your friends are lucky, your kids are more lucky. Three good people in the world thanks to you and Hank. Maybe they will change the world. & # 39;
As soon as she was done, Willie bent over to give her a hug as she called on their stage assistant Jerry to drop a box of tissues.

& # 39; Just to hug someone you love so much, who has the joy of motherhood about her. . . You could feel it and I am about to have a baby, & she explained. & # 39; She's so happy, and to see someone you're so happy about, there's really no better feeling. & # 39;
The host shared that her colleague & # 39; s came in and received her UPPAbaby & # 39; s $ 400 & # 39; Minu & # 39; pram. She also received alphabet cards from LouLou Baker in the bash.
& # 39; I really left taco & # 39; s, which is one of my favorite feelings, but also full of gratitude, & # 39; she said, & # 39; because I don't think everyone goes to work in one place and feels as good as me. & # 39;
Jenna admitted that after the pram was brought to her dressing room the day before, she was practicing with the car seat as the Fab Five from Netflix & Queer Eye passed by.
