Former Hockaday student and Today show co-host Jenna Bush Hager revealed a secret this week: She was first to propose to her husband, Henry Hager. She asked him to marry her after dating him for three months. (Watch the video here.) “I asked Henry to marry me… He said no, and then he asked me five years later.” Here’s what she told Hoda Kotb: “After three months of dating — and I might’ve had a Christmas cocktail — we were dancing. I said, ‘This is it, I know it. Let’s just get married, what are we waiting for?’” In 2007, the couple got engaged and married a year later. The wedding took place on the Bush Family ranch close to Crawford, Texas.
