The 41-year-old TV host explained to her co-host Hoda Kotb on Monday’s episode of Today with Hoda & Jenna why she’s unlikely to follow in the footsteps of Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, who recently reaffirmed their commitment. on the occasion of their 10th anniversary in a ceremony at Lake Como.
Speaking candidly about her views on marriage, Bush Hager surprisingly shared that renewing her vows was something she and Henry had originally planned, although they have since reversed course on that decision.
“When Henry and I got married, when we went on our honeymoon, we said that when we turn 10, we will renew our vows,” she said.

The couple – married for 15 years – had originally planned to renew their vows after 10 years of marriage.
“We will come back here to renew our vows. Well, we’ve been married for 15 years. We never renewed our vows.
Asking his co-star about the subject, Kotb, 59, asked, “What do you think about vow renewal?”
“I think about what everyone has to do,” replied Bush Hager. “I don’t know if it’s for us. Because I honestly feel like we choose each other every day for the little things.
“You know, it’s like, like you said, if he says something funny, but slightly irritating, do I choose to laugh about it or do I choose to be grumpy ? And it’s like you have to make that choice every day.
Bush Hager met her husband in 2004 while working on her father’s presidential campaign.
She previously admitted on the Today show a few years ago that she asked him to marry her after just three months of dating – but he refused because she was too young.
The couple, who are parents to three children, daughters Mila, 10, and Poppy, eight, and son Hal, four, eventually married in 2008 at the Bush Ranch in Crawford, Texas.

“(It was) not easy,” she said.
“He actually read the Bible. I was like, “Come see the movie” or “We’re going to do this.”
“We had friends there and he was like, ‘No. He called my father. He said, “I’d like to come and talk to you.”
“He said, ‘I’m taking a nap.’ Come in a few hours. “So he had to sit and stew.
