Though her husband, Henry Hager, is typically media shy, it didn't stop the Today star from sharing a sweet tribute to him in honor of his 43rd birthday.

She took to Instagram to share never-before-seen pictures of the couple being affectionate with one another, spending time with their three children, Poppy, Mila and Hal, as well as pictures from their travels.

The snaps and throwbacks see Henry as a doting father and husband, and includes many a sunset picture, and even a sweet shot of the couple sharing a kiss by a beach.

The co-host started off her heartfelt tribute with: "Happiest to one of the best! HH, you light up our lives."

Though Henry doesn't have social media, fans took to the comments to wish him a happy birthday regardless, writing: "A great picture!! Happy Birthday!" and: "Love that hubby of yours!!!" as well as: "Have an awesome fun day."

Fans took to the comments once more to express their understanding – and some jokes – about his stance, writing: "Anti social media is so much healthier I think! I admire that!" and: "God bless your husband on his birthday. I'd love to be anti social media."


The couple got married on the same day as his birthday

One even made a cheeky comment about Jenna's twin sister, Barbara Bush, who had previously revealed live on Today that she didn't follow Jenna and Hoda Kotb's joint Instagram account. They hilariously wrote: "So he doesn't follow you and Hoda on Insta either!"

Jenna and Henry met during her father's reelection campaign in 2004 when her now husband worked as a staffer, and they were introduced by mutual friends. They married in 2008 at the Bush family's ranch in Crawford, Texas.
