April Fool’s Day is apparently a favorite holiday of Jenna Bush Hager.

The daughter of Preston Hollow neighbors George and Laura Bush told her Today with Hoda & Jenna co-host Hoda Kotb about a prank she and her sister Barbara played on their mother.

Jenna was studying for a test at a coffee shop early in the morning during her senior year of college when she received a phone call from her sister. They agreed to play a joke on their mother, and when they called her, Barbara told Laura that Jenna was pregnant.

But Laura didn’t react in the way the sisters had hoped. Instead, she remained totally calm.

“It wasn’t even fun. She didn’t get riled up at all,” Bush told Kotb on the show.

After describing that story, Jenna talked about the prank her own daughter Mila decided to do this year. Before Jenna could realize what day it was, Mila called out to her mom and told her there wasn’t any toilet paper. When Jenna reached in to the bathroom to pass her the toilet paper, Mila spread peanut butter on her arm.

“Basically everything I’ve done to my poor parents is coming back,” Jenna says.
