Jenna Bush Hager Reveals the Sweet Gesture George W. Bush Does ‘Every Single Morning’ for Wife Laura Bush

"It is in the little," Bush Hager said while opening up about her dad's kind gesture on Thursday's 'Today with Hoda & Jenna' broadcast

One of the many things Jenna Bush Hager learned from her father, former President George W. Bush, is the importance of kind gestures.

Bush Hager, 42, revealed on Thursday's Today with Hoda & Jenna broadcast that her famous dad treats her mother, Laura Bush, to a cup of coffee every morning.

"It is in the little," the talk show personality said. "I think when you first are in a romantic relationship, or dating or marriage or whatever, you think it's the big things that matter, but it's not; it's the tiny things. It's the note on the… it's the cup of coffee. My dad brings my mom the cup of coffee the way she likes it. Every. Single. Morning."

After co-host Hoda Kotb asked if he really does so "every single morning," Bush Hager revealed that the former president, 77, is just as kind to her and her twin sister, Barbara Pierce Bush.

"Every single morning," Bush Hager said. "And when we're visiting in Dallas, he brings Barbara and me a cup of coffee."

The sweet gesture became a topic of conversation after Bush Hager and Kotb, 59, reacted to a video of Kevin Bacon packing his wife Kyra Sedgwick's lunch before heading off to work.

"I feel like if I was giving men advice on marriage, it's doing the little sweet things. It makes a huge difference," said Bush Hager.

The former first daughter and her husband, Henry Chase Hager, are parents to daughters Mila, 10, and Poppy, 8, and son Hal, 4.

"I think the world was expecting us to be perfect, even though our parents did not, which is the absolute best blessing that they could have ever given us," she explained. "The freedom to just be ourselves and to make mistakes. Because I don't know how I would be a mother without having the grace to fail. I think kids, teenagers are so scared of making mistakes now."

Applying that mindset as she grew up in a family under the spotlight helped her learn how to live a "really joyful life."
