Jenna Bush Hager Gives Her Husband An Engagement Ultimatum But He Still Dumped Her

When Jenna finally got her proposal, it was actually quite unexpected. Her old man, George, had been really interested in her since they met, she remembered. However, she had to go through with him because he was the one who had offered her the proposal. Jenna’s husband had only ever wanted her for his wife, she realized.

Jenna Bush Hager came clean about her almost-proposal with Henry Hager. The “Today” host has been an open book about most aspects of her life on the show, and the same is true with her marriage and proposal. During a chat with Hoda Kotb on the fourth hour of the series, the mother of three admitted that she gave her now-husband what she called “a manipulative ultimatum” to make things official as she threatened to leave Washington, D.C. “Now, listen, if you don’t want me to move to Latin America, we need to get engaged,” she recalled.

Jenna’s plan ended up working (or at least she thought) because, around Valentine’s Day, Henry took her to a fancy restaurant where she thought it would happen. The eatery was supposed to have fortune cookies with special messages, but Henry missed filling the actual cookie. So instead, the restaurant brought out two glasses of champagne with a fortune insert that read, “Don’t go.” However, they wrote the message wrong, and it was supposed to say, “Go, and when you come back, I’ll be here.” 

Jenna agreed to marry Henry during the classic mixup, but there was one problem — he wasn’t popping the question. “I mean, he could have cried. Well, anyway, he was not proposing.” To make matters even worse, fellow diners overheard the conversation and called The Washington Post with the story. Luckily, Henry popped the question a few years later on a hiking trip.
