Earlier this month, Jenna Bush Hager took over for Kathie Lee Gifford and became the co-host of the fourth hour of The Today Show alongside Hoda Kotb. While the show has carried on with what we expect from The Today Show's fourth hour, there has been an underlying theme of parenthood, pregnancy, issues with pregnancy, and even infertility.
On Monday of this week, Jenna announced that she was pregnant with her third child. The next day she shared a story with Meredith Viera, who's filling in for Hoda while she's out with her new baby, about how her first pregnancy was ectopic. The baby was in her fallopian tube and she had to have surgery to remove it.
They also had NASCAR Star Kyle Busch and his wife Samantha on to talk about their infertility struggles. If you follow Samantha on Twitter, you know that she has been very open about the troubles with conceiving their first child and the recent heartbreaking miscarriage of their second. I applaud Kyle and Sam for taking a negative and making it into a positive, though, and that positive is that they started the Bundle of Joy Fund to help families struggling with infertility have babies through IVF that otherwise couldn't afford it. 37 families are involved in the program, 19 babies have been born, and three more are on the way! That's pretty great! Here is Kyle and Sam's story from The Today Show.
