Jenna's dad went on to follow in his father's footsteps after running for President in 2000. At the time, the mother-of-three was reluctant for her dad to do it, aware that it would change their lives. However, she later became involved in the 2004 campaign.

During lockdown, Jenna found it hard being unable to visit her family, as George and his wife Laura Bush were isolating at their ranch in Texas.

However, in July, the presenter was finally able to reunite with her mum and dad, and shared some sweet photos on Instagram of them with her three children, Poppy, five, Mila, seven, and Hal, one.

Jenna opened up about her family reunion on the Today show, telling co-host Hoda Kotb: "It was great. We got COVID-19 tests to go and see them."

She also revealed it was extra special since it was one of the first times her parents had met baby Hal, who was born in August 2019. "They'd only seen Hal, like maybe once," she said.

On her other children's reactions to seeing their grandparents again, Jenna added: "Mila is now waking up at 5am in the morning because she was there waking up, running down to be with her Grammy and Jefe, and I just think even little moments of being with family (are special)."
