W. is going to be a GP!

Jenna Bush Hager, the younger of former President George W. Bush's twin daughters, is pregnant with her first child, the political scion confirmed Wednesday on Today.

"We're so excited and nervous about it," Jenna said of her bun in the oven with hubby Henry Hager, who also joined her on the show. "I'm a first-time mom, but it's something I've always wanted."

Jenna also shared that she is due this spring: "We've been able to keep it a secret—just us, and obviously so sacred for a pretty long time."

This will be the first grandchild for George and Laura Bush—and the first niece or nephew for Jenna's twin, Barbara!

Four years after they met during her dad's second presidential campaign, Jenna swapped vows with Henry in a private ceremony at her parents' ranch near Crawford, Texas, on May 10, 2008. They celebrated again a month later at the White House.

The couple now live in New York.

Jenna, who graduated from the University of Texas with a degree in English, joined Today as an education correspondent in 2009 and just last month was named editor-at-large of Southern Living magazine.

She admitted last year that her parents were on grandbaby watch, telling People, "I don't have any children. I just have a cat, to my parents' dismay...My dad saw my husband's boss at a conference, and he said to stop paying my husband until we produce children."
