Jenna Bush Hager was happy to take her daughter to work this week, but she may not have realized that her little girl would make a surprise appearance while she was on the air.
The 37-year-old hostess, who is about eight months pregnant with her third child, went to Instagram on Thursday to share a heart-warming black-and-white photo of herself with her six-year-old daughter Mila in the Today show plaza.
& # 39; Mila: (530am) nestled in bed, & # 39; Mommy, can I come work with you today? & # 39; Me: Why not, darling, Jenna signed the image, but it seems that her oldest daughter wanted to do more than hang out behind the stage.
Hidden: Jenna Bush Hager & # 39; s six-year-old daughter Mila sneaked to today's show Thursday afternoon while her mother and her co-host Willie Geist were in the air live
Mama and I: the 37-year-old expectant mother went to Instagram on Thursday morning to Instagram to share a heart-warming photo of herself with Mila in the Today show square
Jenna and her co-presenter Willie Geist discussed Forbes & # 39; list of the best paid artists during the fourth hour of the morning show when he found they had an unexpected guest.
& # 39; There is a friend over your shoulder, & # 39; Willie said to Jenna.
& # 39; My daughter came to work with me today, & # 39; the mother explained as Mila approached them in her pink ballerina-inspired dress and purple slip-on shoes.
Because Jenna is pregnant and cannot enjoy a glass of wine or a cocktail as the hostesses usually do during the fourth hour, her wine glass was filled with peanut butter pretzels, which Mila gladly took from Willie when he gave her something to eat.
The little girl seemed to feel at home on the set, and she spent a bit of time under their desks before moving onto her mother's lap.
Too cute: Jenna revealed that her eldest daughter woke up at half past five & # 39; in the morning and asked if she could work with her that day
So sweet: Little Mila looked cute in a ballerina-inspired dress and purple slip-on sneakers while cuddling her mother during an advertising break
& # 39; I brought my child to work. It's always a bad guy, right? & # 39; Jenna said. & # 39; She was there (there), relaxing and then suddenly, as if a ghost was coming after me, right? Just like you did at 5.30 p.m. & # 39;
Mila may have stolen on stage, but she is an old pro when it is quiet while her mother is filming a movie.
She sat on her mother's lap with her elbows propped on the desk and her chin rested in her hands while Jenna and Willie did a video interview with a young man setting up a billboard for a date.
Jenna and her husband, Henry Hager, also have a younger daughter, Poppy, who will be four years old next month.
It is unclear what Poppy was planning while her big sister was working with their mother, but she made a few gigs in the morning show herself.
Silent as a mouse: Mila sat on her mother's lap with her elbows propped on the desk and her chin rested in her hands while Jenna and Willie did a video interview
Bonding: Jenna and her husband, Henry Hager, also have a younger daughter, Poppy, who will be four years old next month. It is unclear where she was while her big sister was on the set
Both Jenna daughters stepped on stage with her in February 2018 when she was co-host with Kathie Lee Gifford, her predecessor who left the show in April.
Little Poppy kept saying: & # 39; Mama has a cat & # 39 ;, which confused Jenna, who said: & # 39; I don't even have a cat anymore. & # 39;
When Mila accompanied her little sister, the two girls led the audience in a stirring choir from & # 39; Mama has a cat! & # 39; to the great shame of Jenna.
It is also not the first time that Mila has asked her mother if she could work with her.
She did the same in February 2017, and while Jenna initially resisted, she admitted that she was killed when Mila looked at her and said: & # 39; Please! & # 39;
One on one: on Friday, Jenna spent quality time with Poppy during a visit to DreamWorks Trolls The Experience in New York City. They both posed with Queen Poppy from the Trolls movie
Pregnancy style: Jenna, who is about eight months pregnant, beats the heat in a sleeveless white and blue gingham summer dress that hugged her baby bump
All the fears she had about her daughter's behavior that day became unfounded. She was nothing less than angels while she was working with her, but Jenna made sure she was busy.
& # 39; She has had many lollipops, & # 39; the mother explained.
Although Jenna & # 39; s exact expiration date is unknown, she is likely to welcome her third child – a baby boy – sometime in August or September.
It looks like the future mother of three will enjoy one-on-one time with her daughters as much as possible before their little brother arrives.
After work on Friday, Jenna took Poppy to DreamWorks Trolls The Experience in New York City, an interactive adventure for children based on the Trolls movie.
Normal for them: Jenna's daughters have appeared on the Today show countless times in recent years. They were shown in the studio in August last year
Mini-me: Mila also asked her mother if she could get to work with her in February 2017, and while Jenna initially resisted, she admitted that she had succumbed when her daughter said: & # 39; Please! & # 39;
Sister, sister: earlier this month, Jenna shared a photo of her daughters in patriotic red, white and blue dresses and held a baby doll while celebrating the Fourth of July
The expectant mother beat the heat in a sleeveless white and blue gingham summer dress that embraced her baby bump.
She wore the dress at the show earlier in the day, but she swapped her platform sandals for a pair of comfortable sneakers while visiting the attraction.
Little Poppy looked cute in a pink dress and she all smiled while she and her mother were posing with Queen Poppy from the movie.
Earlier this month, Jenna shared a photo of her daughters dressed in patriotic red, white and blue dresses and held a baby doll while celebrating the Fourth of July.
According to the mother, the doll helped them prepare for the arrival of their brother, who will be here before they know it.
& # 39; happiest fourth! I am so grateful for our freedom and my family; and especially for all those who protect our beautiful country. #praktijkenvoorbabybro, & # 39; she endorsed the heartwarming image.
