Today cohost and former Preston Hollow Elementary student Jenna Bush Hager celebrated mom and former First Lady Laura Bush on Mother’s Day by sharing a series of photos on Instagram Sunday, including a photo of her mom and her late maternal grandmother, Jenna Hawkins.

“Happiest Mother’s Day to my mama—and her mama (my Grammee) who we lost a year ago today,” Jenna wrote.  “Grammee taught us every constellation in the sky and to love the tiny creatures of West Texas. My mama taught me how to be a mom. Love you mama.”

Laura Bush went on the Today show Friday and bragged about Jenna’s parenting and her three grandchildren, 7-year-old Mila, 4-year-old Poppy, and 9-month-old Hal. “I think Jenna’s terrific as a mother,” Bush said. “She knows how to play with them and have fun with them. I don’t ever really see her lose her patience with them. Maybe she does when her mother’s not watching, but I think she’s been a really wonderful mother, and I think she’s loved having those little girls and now this little baby boy Hal.”
