Jenna Bush Hager gets second dose of Pfizer vaccine after reviewing her father’s painting of her

Jenna Bush Hager has celebrated getting her second dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Wednesday, just hours after revealing the portrait her father George W. Bush had painted of her on the Today show. 

The 39-year-old took to Instagram in the afternoon to share photos of herself getting her final shot after receiving her first vaccination live on-air with her co-stars earlier this month. 

‘Filled with such awe and a grateful heart to get my second shot! Vaccinated!’ Jenna captioned the images, which show her getting the injection and then flexing her arm to show off her Band-Aid after.

She had on the same patterned dress she wore on the Today show, suggesting she likely ran to get her second vaccination right after work.

Earlier in the day, Jenna had a laugh with her co-star Hoda Kotb while giving an honest review of her dad’s painting of her.  

The former president and his artwork are featured in the new issue of People magazine following the release of his new book, Out of Many, One, a collection of his 43 portraits of immigrants.

Jenna let out a little shriek when Today producers flashed her father’s painting of her on the screen. She noted that her dad said in the interview that he has a fear of painting the women in his family — and for good reason.

‘He painted my mom and he said that that was a bust and that painting was destroyed, and then he painted me,’ she explained. 

Jenna was once again caught off guard when the portrait appeared on the screen. 

‘Is that what I look like?’ Jenna asked, frowning. ‘Is that what my face looks like? I’m just wondering.’

The mother of three said her dad even brought up her displeasure with the painting when he appeared on the Today show last week.   

‘He told Hoda that I hate the painting, and I don’t hate it,’ she insisted. 

‘But he did ask me if I wanted it because you didn’t like it,’ Hoda interjected.

Jenna confirmed that her father did offer to send the painting to Hoda, pointing out that her co-star ‘then would have to hang a portrait of me on her wall.’

‘I also think it’s like, who’s going to hang a portrait of themselves in their house? Not me,’ she added. 

Jenna has far more love for the portraits her father painted of her one-year-old son Hal, which he gave her for Christmas last year. 

She shared photos of the paintings on Instagram, writing: ‘My favorite Christmas gift. My Hal painted by his Jefe. @georgewbush Love how you see our precious boy. These bring me joy.’ 

Jenna opened up about the special gift on the Today show earlier this year, admitting there was some confusion about the paintings.

‘Some people on social media thought Hal had done the portraits,’ she told Hoda while laughing. ‘I think they’re really beautiful, and they totally get him.’

‘By the way, it’s not that easy to paint a baby, I can just say that,’ she added. ‘I sent him pictures, and he painted those. You can’t have a baby sit for a portrait.’ 

Bush, who signs his artwork 43, has become a dedicated portrait painter since leaving the White House in 2009, but Jenna admitted that she is still a bit surprised by her father’s artistic pursuits.

She explained that it was her mother, Laura Bush, not her father, who was interested in art and took her and her twin sister Barbara to museums when they were kids.  

‘He painted me, actually,’ she added, making a face. ‘There was a lot of texture on the face, which made me worried about something, like I need more sunscreen.’
