The 37-year-old mother of three has returned to the Today show following three months of maternity leave after the birth of her son, Henry, in early August.
"We're looking for someone named Jenna. Jenna from Texas?" co-host Hoda Kotb told the crowd outside of 30 Rock on Monday morning before Hager ran out. "Y'all, if you didn't know, Jenna Bush Hager is back from maternity leave. Today is her first day on the 10 o'clock show."
For her return to Today, the proud mom wore black-and-white polka dotted pants that she paired with a pink coat.
Kotb and Hager launched the 10 a.m. hour of the Today show together, Hoda & Jenna, shortly before Hager announced her pregnancy and Kotb announced she had adopted a second little girl and was taking a leave. The pair haven't had much of a chance to co-host the hour together since.
