Jenna Bush Hager shared the details behind her new niece’s name on a phone call on the “Today” show on September 29. Apparently, Georgia Cora is a tribute to her dad, George W. Bush.
“It’s in honor of [our dad], and I think that’s so sweet,” Jenna said. “We feel so lucky that he was ours, and I know Barbara wanted to pay tribute to him, so that is where that middle name comes from. It’s a big one.”
The outlet noted that the Bush family is staying in Maine where Barbara Pierce Bush gave birth and married her husband in 2018. The former president and first lady elaborated on this in their announcement, writing that baby Cora was born “not far from our family home where Barbara and Craig were married.” Barbara steers clear of the spotlight in comparison to her sister Jenna, as noted by People, but their relationship remains as strong as ever. With a new addition to the family, that bond will likely only deepen.
