Jenna Bush Hager Opens up About Having an Ectopic Pregnancy


“Today” show co-host Jenna Bush Hager opened up about having an ectopic pregnancy.

On March 21, Hager, 41, sat down in an interview with Amanda Bartolomeo, the founder of the workout CorePlay, and spoke about women’s health.

“When I first met Amanda, we started talking about finding your core, and what that means metaphorically for women and obviously, literally, making sure you’re engaged,” Hager explained.

Hager further explained she and Bartolomeo both discovered they had something in common.

“We started talking and we both realized we both had had ectopic pregnancies,” she shared. “I had one years ago before I got pregnant with Mila. I hadn’t really engaged my core because I’ve had six or seven stomach surgeries with C-sections, and appendicitis, ectopic pregnancy.”

She added, “And so, I had sort of lost that part of me. But also as a woman, it was a really hard thing to go through and I was meeting Amanda, sort of, right after.

According to, an ectopic pregnancy is when “the fertilized egg can’t survive” and can lead to “life-threatening bleeding, if left untreated.”

Hager, who is a mom of three, also spoke about her motivation to stay healthy with Bartolomeo’s help.

“Sometimes you’re like, ‘Oh gosh, I’m so tired. The kids were up all night.’ There’s like a million excuses, but the second I would meet Amanda, she was smiling and we would like start dancing. It was like whatever was hanging on us from the days before, from the night before, would release,” she said of the workouts.

During an emotional conversation with “Today” show co-anchor Hoda Kotb in 2022, Hager said her biggest dream “was to be a mom.”

“That’s all I wanted,” she continued.

Hager is a daughter of former U.S. President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush.
