There’s nothing quite like that special bond between sisters, and nobody knows that better than former first daughter Jenna Bush Hager as a twin to sibling Barbara, and a mother to two daughters.
The 35-year-old daughter of former President George W. Bush, took to Instagram to celebrate her close-knit relationship with her fraternal twin in a hilarious throwback photo that shows the duo as young girls of just five years old.
Taken in 1986, the adorable photo captures young Jenna hugging a Pippi Longstocking doll with a gleeful smile, while her sister Jenna looks distractedly to the side, wearing a giant white bow atop her blonde curls.

‘TBT: B and me from 86’… happiest memory with my sissy,’ the Texas-born mother-of-two captioned her photo, before plugging her upcoming book that she has written with sister Barbara.
The heart-warming shot reveals an uncanny similarity between Jenna and Barbara, and Jenna’s daughters Mila, four, and Poppy, two, who share the blonde tresses and curious light eyes as Jenna and her sister.
Just last week the journalist mom posted sweet photos of her daughters dressed in colorful donut pajamas, posing with Today show pal Savannah Guthrie’s book Princesses Wear Pants.
The two were all smiles with the older one giving a wide-mouthed grin to show off her exciting book, much like mom Jenna’s jaw-dropped pose in her throwback photo.

Aside from mommy duties and seeing her children off to the new school year, Jenna and Barbara have been busy touring to promote their upcoming book, as with Jenna’s latest Instagram, entitled, Sisters First: Stories From Our Wild and Wonderful Life.
The book, scheduled for an October 24th release, will reveal a collection of stories essays penned by the duo that confess the secrets of their early days in the White House with their grandfather George H. W. Bush and parents Laura and George W. Bush in office.

The collection will also detail stories of their growing pains and mistakes, and shed light for the first time on their famed underage drinking arrest in 2001 while the pair were still in college.
The Bush sisters also revealed in a Facebook Live book promotion that at first, they didn’t want their father to take office.
‘When we were 18 and our father first sat us both down and told us he wanted to run for president, we both tried to veto that idea,’ Jenna explained.
The book includes stories from their childhood in the Texas countryside, attending college with the Secret Service in tow, and the glare of the tabloid spotlight.
