Jenna Bush Is Engaged
President Bush’s daughter Jenna is marrying boyfriend Henry Hager, the White House announced Thursday. "President and Mrs. George W. Bush are happy to announce the engagement of their daughter, Jenna Bush, to Mr. Henry Hager, son of the Honorable and Mrs. John H. Hager of Richmond, Virginia," the White House said in a statement. "Miss Bush and Mr. Hager became engaged Wednesday, August 15, 2007." Last August, Hager joined the Bush family for a long weekend in Kennebunkport, Maine. At the time, Hager, a former Commerce Department staff member, was just beginning classes to get his MBA at the University of Virginia's Darden School. Jenna, who was a public school teacher in Washington, D.C., has spent time in Panama as an intern for UNICEF. And she's working on an as-yet-untitled children's book with her mother, Laura, to be published by HarperCollins next spring.
