Jenna Bush Hager isn’t the only one anxiously awaiting the arrival of her third child.

As Dearly previously reported, Hager and her husband, Henry, revealed they were five months pregnant with baby number three in April.

The couple, who is already parents to two little girls, Mila and Poppy, are expecting not only their first son, but their families first grandson.

And as Hager explained in an interview with People, while everybody is “over the moon about it,” her father, former President George W. Bush, is particularly excited to have a boy in the family.

She explained:

“My dad keeps joking that we need to name him George.”

And while it seems like an obvious choice for the first grandson, Hager says she and her husband haven’t decided on their unborn son’s name yet.

Hager continued that her father adores his granddaughters, but admits it will be nice for him to have a boy to pal around with:

“We had two girls. That’s all he’s ever known.”

The soon-to-be mom of three added that it will “be nice for him to have a little fishing buddy as well.”

Hager also admitted in her interview with People that having a third baby was never in their plan.

“We really hadn’t planned to even have a third baby and it feels like this blessing that I hadn’t even asked for. Is the timing ideal? Not really. We are launching something new and I’ll be taking maternity leave this fall. But it’s not about that.”

The 37-year-old is expected to give birth in “late summer.”

Hager said she’s excited that her son and her co-host Hoda Kotb’s youngest daughter will be just months apart:

“And the fact that Hoda and I get to start this journey together [with babies] who will be months apart and we get to do the show together, we are creating these new things together. New lives, and a new show as a team.”

And just like their grandfather, Poppy and Mila are also very excited to meet their new baby brother.
