Jenna Bush Hager’s eldest daughter Mila greatly misses home while at summer camp. On Wednesday Today Show, the 39-year-old co-host shared a heartwarming letter she received from her 8-year-old daughter at camp.
“I also miss a girl who is at camp and I got a letter last night that reminded me of a letter I would write, and it broke my heart into a million pieces,” Jenna told her co-host, Hoda Kotb. .
The mother of three, who is also the mother of 5-year-old Poppy and 2-year-old Hal, proceeded to read the letter in a very dramatic way.
“Dear Mom and Dad, I miss you. I wish I could be with you,” he began, before reading the sad ending. “PS: Dad, how much longer until you pick me up? I miss you too much. I need to stop crying so much goodbye. I miss you so much Mom and Dad.”
Although she laughed at the letter, Jenna shared that her husband, Henry Hager, was convinced of her.
“Henry says, ‘Should I go get her?’ And I said, ‘No, she’s fine,’ “Jenna said, adding,” But isn’t that the saddest thing? “
In April, Jenna celebrated Mila’s eighth birthday with a touching tribute.

EIGHT years ago you came into the world fast and energetic, becoming a mom, changing me forever,” Jenna wrote. “Your creativity, leadership, empathy and heart INSPIRE. The night you were born, the moon smiled in such amazement that the stars peeked out to see you and the night wind whispered: ‘Life will never be the same again.”
