Jenna Bush Hager only welcomed new
daughter Mila two weeks ago, but she looked sensational as she appeared
with her mother, grandmother and sister in Dallas, Texas today, at
the dedication of the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum.Wearing
a bright red dress, there was not a sign of the 'mummy tummy' that most
new mothers might be suffering from so soon after giving birth.A
glossy blow-dry and flawless make-up added polish, and ensured that she
more than held her own alongside her camera-ready relatives on the Today show - the first time the three generations have been interviewed together.Scroll down for video

her decision to leave Mila in New York, Mrs Hager said: 'We left the

Hager's former President father, George W Bush, asking him how he felt
to be a grandfather for the first time.'It's
awesome, I mean, just awesome, and such a joy,' he replied. 'It's
really the beginning of a new chapter in our lives to be grandparents.'The family joked that new baby Mila
could be the next Bush in the White House, though Mrs Hager was quick to add 'I don't want to put that pressure on her.'But
it was her grandmother Barbara who sparked the most controversy on that
subject, announcing that she doesn't want her son, Jeb Bush, to run for
president in 2016 because the country has 'had enough Bushes.''He’s
by far the best qualified man, but no,' a blunt Mrs Bush said when
asked whether Jeb, the former governor of Florida, should run.

'I really don’t,' she continued.

'I think it’s a great country. There are a lot of great families, and
it’s not just four families or whatever. There are other people out
there that are very qualified. We’ve had enough Bushes.'Whether there were future Presidents in their midst or not, the whole Bush clan was present at the ceremony today.When
George W Bush gave his speech and mentioned his pride in his daughters,
Mrs Hager could be seen shedding a tear, and husband Henry wiping it
from her face.Later, she
tweeted a reference to her grandfather's bright pink socks, which may be
a reference to the fact that his new great-grandchild is a girl.

Earlier this week Mrs Hager revealed
that she was at her baby shower when her water broke three weeks early,
and today, twin sister Barbara revealed that she was present at the
time.'I was with Jenna
when Mila decided to arrive early,' she said. 'Which was very fun and
funny and sort of traumatizing . . . but she is the sweetest and I'm
very excited.'Speaking by phone interview on Monday, Mrs Hager told her Today Show co-anchors that it came as a complete shock.
New mother: Jenna Bush Hager with her newborn
baby daughter Mila. The 31-year-old told her Today Show co-hosts on
Monday that she and husband Henry are as 'happy as can be'
'I was having a baby shower that day, and I felt the baby move
and everybody was staring at me cause it was one of those baby showers where
you open gifts,' she recalled.'I kind of started sweating, which is a normal thing.
but then all of a sudden in front of all of my friends, my water broke.'It
would seem that the 31-year-old had two baby showers, one that took
place before she went on maternity leave that featured on the Today Show
and in People magazine, and a second private party after she stopped
work, during which her water broke.

daughter of former President George W Bush says that she and her
husband Henry are 'as happy as can be' despite the fact that their new
daughter's arrival has turned their home upside-down.'I don't even really like the
color pink and there's pink all over my apartment,' she admitted. 'I like things to be
really neat and there's bottles and things all over.'Jenna says she is head-over-heels in love with little Mila though.
