Sometimes out of the mouths of babes comes great wisdom, and that is what happened when Jenna Bush Hager’s 5-year-old daughter, Mila, whose given name is Margaret Laura, heard of the passing of former president George H.W. Bush. Of course, for Mila, the great man was simply “Gampy.”
In an interview with Today, Hager and her twin sister Barbara Pierce Bush discussed the passing of her grandfather. During the insightful piece, Hager shared some sweet words that her little girl shared. Hager said that she asked her husband why her grandfather had died at the holiday season, and her daughter, whom the mother didn’t even realize had heard, gave a touching reason her great-grandfather had passed so near Christmas.
“Well, of course, it’s happening right before Christmas, Gampy had to get to Ganny so they could decorate their Christmas tree,” said the 5-year-old Mila.
