Jenna Welch Bush (born November 25, 1981 in Dallas, Texas at Baylor University Medical Center) is an author and school teacher who is the daughter of U.S. President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush as well as the fraternal twin of Barbara Bush. Jenna and Barbara are known as the first First Twins both because they are the children of the US President and because they are the first twin children of a sitting President. She is currently engaged to her boyfriend of two years, Henry Hager, a former White House aide and University of Virginia graduate student.

Jenna had asked her father not to run for president in 2000. "Oh, I just wish you wouldn't run. It's going to change our life." Her father told her that he and her mother needed to live their lives. However, in the winter of 2003, Jenna decided she wanted to become involved in the 2004 campaign. In response to this decision, Jenna made media appearances during the summer of 2004 prior to the 2004 U.S. Presidential election when she and Barbara made several public appearances, including giving a speech to the Republican Convention on August 31, 2004. Jenna was also found sticking her tongue out to media photographers at a campaign stop in St. Louis. Jenna and Barbara took turns traveling to swing states with their father and also gave a seven-page interview and photo shoot in Vogue magazine. The media also extensively covered the campaigning of John Kerry's daughters Vanessa and Alexandra, making the "battle of the daughters" a human interest element of the campaign.

Before leaving Washington, D.C. in Summer 2006, Bush taught at Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School for a year and a half. She is currently teaching at a shelter several days a week as part of an internship for UNICEF's Educational Policy Department in Latin America, specifically in Panama.

On August 15, 2007, Jenna became engaged to her boyfriend of two years, Henry Hager, whom she met during her father's 2004 presidential campaign. Their relationship became public when the two appeared together at a White House dinner for Prince Charles and Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall in November 2005. Earlier that year, in February, Laura Bush had commented that Hager was not a "serious boyfriend" of Jenna's. After Hager was granted permission by the President to marry Jenna, Hager proposed to her on Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park in Maine. No wedding date or site has been decided yet.

Hager is currently a graduate student in business administration at the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration at the University of Virginia. A Wake Forest University graduate, Hager worked as a U.S. Department of Commerce aide for Carlos Gutierrez and as a White House aide for Karl Rove. He is the son of Virginia Republican Party Chairman John H. Hager, who previously served as lieutenant governor of Virginia and as the U.S. Department of Education Assistant Secretary under George W. Bush.
