In a clip from an episode that was shared on Instagram, Hoda Kotb had the funniest reaction as Jenna was shown a picture of herself with dad George W. Bush, mom Laura Bush and twin sister Barbara, all dressed up for Fourth of July.

Jenna and Barbara were wearing matching United States flag T-shirts, and the TV star sported heavy bangs and an Alice band.

She looks just like her dad and Barbara looks just like her mom! Perfect twins," one wrote, while another remarked: "This is so cute!" A third added: "Adorable!!"

Jenna is incredibly close to her Today co-stars, and recently opened up about working on the NBC daytime show while talking to HELLO!.

Jenna is also close with Savannah Guthrie, and told us: "And even the other day when Savannah was filling in with me, we were getting dressed together and I was like, 'Put on something more goth'.

"It feels like we're getting dressed to go on a night out when really we're getting dressed to go and present television. It's so much fun that you really love everybody that you work with to the point that you're getting dressed together."
